I'm attaching the results from the January SSS in plain ASCII text. If the reflector allows plain text to be attached to files, then you should get them in a clean column format. If not, I'll work on it some more for the February contest.

Managed a QSO all the way over to Miami FL! I live in Lakeland, FL
There was some QRM at first (station in VA working a net pn 7.123), so I tried 7.121. No dice. Back to 7122 and was answered on second CQ.
Had the Kenwood TS-140s turned back to 5w.
It's 43 in my shack (no heat) so I'm going into the sun.

Hi John, How about listing the entries in a spread sheet............don't
sure how that would report here but would allow us to tailor the sheet
afterward to how we like it........e.g. sort stuff....

Randy:

I just sent out the FINAL update.  You said you had a couple of contacts, so I put you down for 2.  Guess it should have been 4 (can't count W2SH twice on the same band).  I'll make the change on my spreadsheet, but will not send out a correction.

station noise...............

Phil Anderson
 

Rick and you-all....

I haven't found the article I saw before but found a generic one
on station grounding and will read it tonight. Here is the
web url to the paper by w8ji

14 V POWER SUPPLY & NOISE/INTERFERENCE

Phil Anderson
 

Rick and etal...........4sqrp'rs

I saw a detailed article on the web some months back about winding common-mode
cores/filters to eliminate noise sources, primarily coming from the shack and house.
I ordered some of the cores, FT-100-43 and FT140-43 from Amidon but have not installed
them yet. 

I'm guessing if you search google with "ft-100-43 common-mode filters" or other search
combinations you'll find that article. I'll try myself later today.

Best to all -and ain't the early morning net cool and fun! tnx Terry enjoy QNI !

Re: 14 volt power supply

Rick Bennett
 

I have had some luck with noisy switcher power supplies with using beads on the power leads.  And sometimes multiple wraps on the bead is what it takes.  I have a bucket full of beads that came off of old computer cables that someone gave me. Sometimes these work, sometimes RFI beads like FT-73-2401 work.  Unfortunately this is often a trial and error thing, but may be worth a try if you have these things in your junk box.  I suppose if I had a spectrum analyzer this process might be easier, but you will not find one of those in my ham shack (maybe some day...).

 

The issue with the broken web link below may very well be a formatting problem between e-mail venues.  I have found myself being a user of several e-mail platforms including Lotus Notes, Outlook and at least 3 web mail formats.  I have encountered similar problems before and have had to help some non-tech users through this also.  Even the browser program can make a difference.  I recently had some problems with Yahoo web mail between Internet Explorer and Chrome (same yahoo e-mail account, results varied between IE and Chrome).  These kinds of things are major contributors to my hair loss, increased greying of the hair left and the fact that I have an ongoing prescription for Xanax.

I bought two and I have no noise problems, on the other hand I have
several power supplies for an external Hard Disk and they also have
no noise detectable. I guess ones mileage will vary.
