Re: tv rfi



Don,

     This can be a nasty problem.  In many cable systems channel 18 is
actually in the 2 meter band.  Tune around and see if you can hear channel
18 on your 2 meter rig (~145.250 MHz).  Then go looking for leaks.  Your
only real hope of staying out of channel 18 is good shielding.  If it is in
the cable companies wiring they are generally pretty responsive (usually
much better than power companies) as they don't like their signal leaking
out to everyone for free!  If you are getting directly into TV the problem
is lots tougher, but since it is multiple sets I'm betting you will find a
break in the shielding somewhere.

     Good luck and 73,
        Joe
