The U.S. Navy has produced one of the best handbooks I have seen on HF Noise Mitigation Here’s a link to “U.S. Navy Noise Handbook.pdf” in my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rbe7vsdfsl5t1ng/U.S. Navy Noise Handbook.pdf?dl=0 Thanks to Dan KC4GO for pointing it out to me

    Good reminder - that's a really practical guide, especially for power-line related issues.

    Thanks for passing this on. Not only will it increase my knowledge but on my Flight to Europe next week it will put me to sleep. "Just kidding well kinda"

    As Mr. Spock would say...."Fascinating!"  Neat stuff, especially the time domain graphs.  We can get that on our flexes now!  It would be great to have a wiki site with a collection of FLEX-6000 screen captures of different types of interference.  It would make things much simpler for us as we try to trace interference sources.

    Ii could contribute a few from my own station, especially the garbage generated by the over-the-counter halogen lights in my kitchen!  What a mess they generate!

    I also had a problem with the halogen kitchen counter lights but mine turned out to be switching wall-wart.  Wish I had rig that could put out a signal that strong!

    Found an equivalent linear and the silence was golden!

    Thank you for introducing the Community to the Naval Postgraduate School publication NPS-EC-07-002 titled THE MITIGATION OF RADIO NOISE FROM EXTERNAL SOURCES at Radio Receiving Sites, dated May 2007.  As the name suggests this document addresses “EXTERNAL SOURCES.”

    There is a related Naval Postgraduate School publication which is likely of interest to the Community.

    Naval Postgraduate School Publication NPS-EC-10-001 THE MITIGATION OF RADIO NOISE AND INTERFERENCE FORM ON-SITE SOURCES at Radio Receiving Sites, dated November 2009, focuses largely upon grounding, cables, antennas, and power conversion related issues.  A pdf copy of this document can be found on the ARRL website at http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Technology/RFI%20Main%20Page/Naval_RFI_Handbook.pdf.  The ARRL also refers to the book as the Naval RFI Handbook but they are the same document.
