The street address of my QTH is so new it does not show up on Google Maps. If you click on the "show map" under the details tab and then go to the satellite view you can see where I live.

If you are like me you probably have not heard of an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) unless you are an electrician. Well you need to be aware of these devices as they are very troublesome to HF radio transmissions. I built a new home in a 55 and older commmunnity late last year and began assembling my station in March of this year. That is when I found out what an AFCI was when most of the 18 breakers in the house when I would transmit with as little as 10 watts.

If you are considering moving or building a new house (all new homes by code require these devices) I would consider becoming very knowlegeable about AFCI's. I started a forum on E-ham about 2 months ago that has already had 54,00 view as of 7/26/14. The link to the forum is:

There is also a You Tube Video of these breakers tripping as far away as 400 feet.
