I was having what I think was some RFI on the low bands, so I installed a low-pass filter, mostly by the suggestion of another ham, just to see if it took care of the issue.
It seems to have cleaned up the noise, although that doesn't make sense to me because I thought the low-pass filter was to prevent me from causing interference, not the other way around. Perhaps I misunderstand how a low-pass filter works. Either way, the extra noise is gone now.
The low-pass filter allows 1.0-30mhz through, but the filtering starts before 30 mhz. As a result, I can no longer use on the 10-meter band. I can't even monitor it.
I am using a single radio with a tuner (the filter is between the radio and tuner) and a 135' OFC dipole. Before I installed the filter I was able to use 10 meters.
Any suggestions for how I can bypass the low-pass filter and still use just one antenna?
A 10-meter antenna isn't that big, I just don't want a bunch of antennas and lines coming in the house.
I know, I am one of those odd hams who likes minimalism
