anybody know of a site to show me what I need to switch from cat 5 to fiber for my 5K and 6K Flex rigs?
(hopefully this will eliminate of lessen rfi) I have just a little problem with the 5K but the 6K seems more susceptible.
The tower is right behind the house, and the antennas are only 20' above the roof.  pse and tu de Bill w9ol

    Hi Bill,
    I just sent you a direct email with some information on how I added a fiber link in my CAT5 ethernet  setup.  It provides both RF isolation and lightning surge protection.    Hope this is helpful, let me know if it doesn't get to you.

    Regards, Al / NN4ZZ
