    Dude needs to look at RF grounding or get rid of his Wizard Built amplifier. He probably has two fiddy invested in chokes.

    I believe he said he
    I believe he said her machine was affected, but I suspect her machine came over his radio. My mom's old sewing machine came over my rigs way back when.

    I looked at it again. He said, "every time I would transmit my wife's sewing machine would start to run."

    Probably a ground loop. A ground loop will act like an antenna and will radiate RF.
