Gentlemen.

I have a Drake 1000 Low Pass-1000 watts below 30 MHz, attenuation better than 80 db above 41 MHz. At times I will come thru my T.V. speakers & picture, but not all the time, I have hooked this filter up directly to the back of the radio when the TVI is happening and the filter does nothing. This is on regular TV antenna on CH 5 and 4.



Next question; I am also on a Dish system which the dish is located about 8 ft from the tower. There are times that when I turn the rotor to move the beam the signal is blocked out on the dish. I am thinking maybe RF is coming from the rotor and causing this problem. I have three ground rods off of each leg and # 2 bare cooper wire plus a continuious wire connecting all three rods. I do have sandy soil, so maybe I am not getting a good ground. What you think?

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.
