We have tons of noise in town. Led lights, billboards and god know what else. Up to a 9+ in front of various stores. So my wonder was if anyone had tried the phasing qrm eliminator out in a mobile setup? I'm thinking about trying it this weekend.

Man made noises are difficult to eliminate because they vary so much & you can't keep up with all of them & even more so in a mobile even if someone else was driving. Get a good DSP External Speaker or a good DSP Filter & that's about the best that you can do & make the best of what you get along with a quality receiver.

I've noticed it's not bad as I thought it would be. And it depends on the source, some sources cant be knocked out. In out town theres Hv transmission lines on one end of town, 6 or 8 traffic lights, led signs and dollar generals. If I tune on the hv side it still works on the other end. I'll admit it isnt an end all cure all but it's way better
Those devices use a 2nd Reference Antenna that needs to be similar or same to ant #1 ...... doesn't seem likely one would be able to arrange that.
I added a mag mount to the vehicle that was around 5ft from the main antenna. Worked good.

Have you tried one? I was amazed at what it can do. Perfect? Not hardly but not bad either.

I use a ClearSpeech Base DSP Module on every radio I own or use with SSB & AM in my shack. I have for years & I have Zero desire to operate without one on any radio. I use an ICOM 7600 & ICOM 9100 (Both Optional Roofing Filters Installed) & they both have a very good DSP system as does my ICOM 7000 in my mobile which I use a ClearSpeech DSP Speaker with. I recommend the ClearSpeech products to everyone who hates Noise like I do. They make a great receiver even better.

I have a mfj 752. Not impressed. Not quite what you were talking about. And some noise just dont go away with the box. I notice I can tune it so even if the noise is there I am able to pull the rx signal up higher. It's all magic n phasing im sure. It also will act as a preamp when the knobs are in certian places. It's hard to explain to people that have not tried one because it is a tune it till you get the best kind of situation. And if it works it's great, but on the stuff that dont work you just get frustrated.
