Welcome to my world, Bry.  I have a touch lamp in the adjoining room and it
does a dance every time I get on the air.  It doesn't seem to matter if I am
using the beam or wire, I still get the flashing lamp.  I also get
considerable interference on receive, especially on the higher bands.  When
10 meters is open I usually unplug it to prevent the noise.  I haven't tried
to remedy the problem, so maybe someone here can help out.

Merry Christmas to all..

I have an RFI issue in the house here... I was wondering if 
anyone else has seen this...

I have a tall torchiere in another part of the house, and it 
is the type that you can turn on by TOUCHING the vertical 
bar. If you touch it repeatedly the britghtness changes too.

The only problem is that my rig turns it on too! In fact, with 
every DIT oir DAH of CW it either changes the brightness
or turns it on/off.

I am getting this on 40m, 30m and 20m CW. The antenna is an 
end fed random wire with an L-network tuner, upstairs on 
the second floor. My "ground" is a wire to the screw on the 
wall plate. Not great I know.

I haven't tried other bands yet!

Any suggestions?

Thanks & 73 - Bry, AF4K
