Good to hear from you, Richard. How's your 560 QRM? Did you check for any
carrier from Fiji 558 which has been revitalized? 73 KAZ soon to be doing
his TP hunting again.

Motel QRM  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, August 16 2017

Colin,

I should have been clearer. I was complaining about the Motel QRM while
on the road.

And

A need to replace the SW-35 is on the horizon. I have used it for so
long that all of the writing on the case over the controls is gone, and
some of the switches are intermittent. I have been using it nightly
since I got it more then 14 years ago.

Since the QRM is RF energy, the best thing to do is go to a BnB or a cabin.
A new radio will be no more resistant to the RF noise mess than any other.

Sometimes a radio with a choice of narrow bandwidths helps - but only marginally.

Motel QRM  View Printable Version

I'm afraid that I agree with Colin. It's not the radio! It's a sign of
our times. Crappy noise producing light fixtures (power saving) are the
most common source of QRM. In motels/hotels, the outside lights are on
24/7 and if they are, that'll be the source. Other sources might be BPL
internet, wall warts of poor quality, etc. Sometimes moving around the
room might find you a quieter location. Also TVs with instant on features
(they always are these days) might be the source. You could try and unplug
them and see if they make a difference. Good luck! Walt Salmaniw,
Victoria, BC

Some of the nicer motels seem to be the worst. On a recent trip to my wife's family reunion in eastern NY we stayed in a Best Western in Ohio. Tuning the entire BCB I with my Sony ICF-SW35 I could hear 1 station clearly, and one faintly.
