I have a cable tv/internet/phone bundle.  A few weeks ago, my TV started tiling, and dropping the signal.  My internet was slow at times.  After 4 phone calls and 3 techs, the problem was resolved.  The third tech checked for leakage and found out the router the cable provider provides was having a 200 microvolt leakage that was feeding back into the 3 way splitter and causing problems. The F Connector on the router seemed to be the problems as moving it would change the amount of leakage. Replacing the router solved the problem. I wish I had his fancy field strength meter with audio and voltage measurements.  I wonder if that is the problem causing vhf/uhf rfi that I had with a scanner? What would this do on HF?
