Optical Data ports

KI5ESV Member
I've spent allot of time chasing down noise induced in the data line between switch and radio. It seriously affects the data rate and transmit voice quality. I finally solved it with a shielded ethernet cable but this is a hollow victory. The cable in the wall isn't shielded so now there is a cable running down the hall on the floor. (That causes noise on the XYL channel.)
It seems to me that an optical data path between computer/display/radio would be a much better option. It's 100% RF proof.
I know I can black box media converters at both ends but this adds even more RF routes near the radio. A pair of blinking diodes inside of the faraday cage of the radio can't be that hard and it would eliminate a big RF issue.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
