Please, please take a few minutes to look at the HF spectrum outside of the amateur bands and check for PLT interference. The new EU PLT regulatory "standard" EN50561 has been adopted and will cause widespread interference. If you currently have PLT interference outside of the amateur bands, IT WILL GET WORSE and IMD will affect the ham bands sooner or later.

The EU has decided to dictate to the whole planet that Ethernet over mains (powerline networking = PLT/PLC) takes precedence over ham radio & SWL. It is our duty to tell them they are wrong! Please sign the petition to send a clear message to the EU that polluting the spectrum for financial profit is wrong. The new PLT "standard" permits a 40dB increase in output. Take a look at what ONE PAIR of current generation PLT adapters does to my radio spectrum and then add 40dB to the S-meter. Please ask ALL your friends and contacts to sign the petition! 73

I am the founder of interference.org.uk a forum dedicated to helping people suffering from all forms of interference to their electronics - whether it be TV, radio, broadband, ham/business radio or even CB.

If you are a UK amateur and have enlisted Ofcom to deal with an interference complaint, please consider "dontaing" your interference complaint to our Ofcom Spectrum Abuse Survey. This is designed to try to gain a better picture of the regulator's performance on spectrum management over time. It does not matter whether Ofcom cured your problem or not - we would like your case to try to build a balanced and honest picture of their performance.

For those interested, I am now a WAB'er. ST64, Book No.19740

My Station: Apache Labs ANAN-100D (HF/6m) HPSDR, ANAN-10 (IF for 4m transverter - M+E ME4T Pro), Icom IC-7100 (HF/6/4 backup, 2m/70 Main RTX), end-fed unterminated loop for <= 30m, HB Cobwebb @ 11m (20/17/15/12/10). Heil PR40 mic, Acom 1000 amp. Diamond X510N vertical & V2000 (2m/70c).


My interests have traditionally been Meteor Scatter and weak signal communications on 4m and 6m - more recently mostly using the WSJT modes which gave me the honour of obtaining a number of 4m 'Firsts' but still resorting to CW and SSB sometimes! Following a few years of progressive degradation of the noise floor in my suburban location I was forced to abandon weak signals in 2010 and rethink my operating arrangements.

Please come and look for me on-http://hamspots.net/jt9/

I am an electrical, mechanical and lighting engineer and was also an experienced installation electrician and installations inspector, until chronic degeneration in my lower spine and Fibromyalgia left me disabled in 2007.

I started repairing TV’s, videos and later amateur radio equipment from 13 years of age. I passed the City & Guilds Radio Amateurs' Examination aged 15, having borrowed the 1976 RSGB Radio Communication Handbook and reading it from cover to cover several times and then entering myself in for the examination as an external candidate, without any other tutelage.

I had an old Eddystone RX and was an avid SWL. I was initially mentored into amateur radio by an already ageing G2 who kindly loaned me some 1950’s reel to reel RSGB CW tutoring tapes. He also gave me a 1930's three speed Marconiphone reel to reel tape deck (which I still have!) on which to play them. I started on "slow" and progressed from there!

I moved to Glastonbury in my mid-teens and was taken under G8KBQ’s wing (also silent key), who mentored me in thermionic VHF/UHF amplifier design and practise, and we attended numerous Longleat rallies together until John's long-term illness finally took its toll.

Like so many amateurs now, I mainly forego the joys of design and construction for the ease and convenience of the commercial equipment, however I still insist on designing and building the odd antenna and amplifier when the mind and body agree with each other..... ;o/

From 2012 I have rediscovered HF and MF and take a particular interest in JT9 & JT65HF.

Thanks for looking. keep well and of course, Gud DX!!!

Experimental feature: see your signal in near-real-time (delay of a few seconds) and also verify my output power! (Sound problematic, but works most of the time). **Note** The volume is low because I normally run with the AGC off. This means any unexpected signals could well be A LOT louder!

This only runs when the station is active.
