Manager - VK5LA
Andy Williss (VK5LA) Welcome to the Survey Page.

The goal is to help us all gain a
better understanding of the ham
community... what we like... what
we don't like... about various
aspects of our hobby. Let's make
it fun and maybe kick up a little
dust once in a while. I hope you
all will participate and enjoy the
questions.

Please enter your ideas for future
survey questions yourself (click on
the "Enter your idea" link just
above) or send them directly to me
at surveymaster@eham.net .

I often get comments that there is
a commercial interest in the survey
questions and that some of the
questions are "rigged"...I assure
all eham users that the questions
are
in no way influenced by any
company, person or persons.
The questions in the survey all
come via contributions to eham or
are just plain made-up by your
humble survey manager.


Please note that there are many
potential surveys in our queue, and
many of them are duplicates.
Sometimes we combine several
questions into one. We at eham.net
make every effort to present all
content in a way that will be
easily understandable and useful to
an international audience.

R.F.I.---the continuing scourge of Ham radio, be it "traditional" horizontal oscillators of TVs going back to the 40's, or the raucous din of to-day's plasma televisions, exercise equipment, lighting systems, furnaces, electric fences, power line leakages, AD NAUSEAM. How have YOU handled cases where somebody's electric contraption seriously hampered YOUR on-the-air activities...?

  I confronted the guilty party immediately & directly, explained my circumstances, & offered my services as a tool to remedying the situation.
  I don't like confrontation, so I contacted the FCC & let THEM handle the situation.
  I operated under self-imposed "quiet hours", in order to be a good neighbour.
  I simply hit the "noise reducer" button on my transceiver, & grimaced my way through it all.
  I took the offending party to court, because they refused to co-operate with me.
  I make it a point now to operate with my linear amplifier on at all times, & give THEM a dose of RFI!
  I am very lucky in that I have never, ever experienced RFI to my operations.
