"Can you hear this with a different antenna? A portable receiver? Your car radio?"


N9BH:  I just found one of your posts that I had not responded to. . .I only have the one antenna so far, so that is still to be determined. . .

I can hear it with my Elecraft K1 on battery power, but yes, on that same antenna. 

I do not find it on my car radio. . .

That has me thinking of hauling down my dipole now. . .Thanks for the idea.  I just tuned in 40 meters, and it's very noisy right now.  It is very windy here today, with approaching thunderstorms.

Had similar problem listening on 40 and 80. Finally traced it to plasma televisions. These tv's were actually in my own home. Bad in the evening because evening was the only time tv's were on. Replaced with LCD tv's and noise was gone
