Charlie Tango DX is a group dedicated to Hobby Radio Users in all forms, whether CB, Amateur, PMR446, Scanning and Short Wave Listening.
We are a very active and friendly group that welcomes anyone from anywhere in the world who has an interest in Radio, regardless of their level of experience, their equipment, their location, or their radio preference.

The CT Site contains many reviews, tips and modifications within the forums, and we take pride that no sensible question is ever left unanswered, and nobody is ever belittled or mocked for asking an honest question, no matter how simple it may seem. We were all new to the hobby once.

Hi Grady,
There are many things that can cause QRM, PLT (using mains wiring to distribute internet around a house), "wall wart" power supplies that are "cheap and nasty", various appliance power supplies. inverters on solar panels amongst others.

First thing, have you proved it's not your house.
Put the radio on a battery and kill the mains at the consumer unit.
If your noise goes down, then there is something in your house.
Switch one circuit in at a time until you find the noise come back up.

If it makes no difference, then you will have to walk around with a portable radio (Medium Wave / AM band).
If the noise on the tranny comes up as ou approach your neighbour's house, then you will have to use your skills as a diplomat to keep him on your side.

What I'm trying to say is be sure first and don't go shouting the odds

Good luck

Hi Grady
I sometimes have QRM on my HF/vhf radios. I found out mine was caused by my Sky Q box being too near my broadband router, so I relocated my router and this seems to have solved my problem.

Me too....my EE router was giving me about S6 - S7 of noise at one stage. I moved it about 12 feet (3.6 mtrs) across the room and the noise level dropped to S3 -S4.
