I'll be giving a presentation on AFCIs at the Duke City Hamfest in Albuqueque somewhere around the 12-14th of August.  Hopefully somebody will learn something. Roll Eyes

I just had an interesting experience at our Ham Club meeting on Saturday.  I was asked to make a few comments on the AFCI problem and a new guy stood up and said he had experienced the problem at his apartment and couldn't figure out what caused it (other than his transmitting).  Just shows how this hasn't been spread around very well.  Fortunately, he moved to an area that is older.
I haven't heard back from the ARRL about my request to republish the AFCI problem in QST.  Hope they do.

The ARRL has a new CEO now, so maybe we need to enlighten him as to the League's "sticking their head in the sand" on this issue.  He may be more receptive than the previous administration.

I went into Home Depot yesterday,  Eaton AFCIs "bad actors" on the shelf.

Terry, they're tired of hearing from me.  Why don't you give it a try?
