Glad to be back on HF
Couple of things to report:
1) I got bored on 11 and 10m because “propagation was bad”. I don’t know if i got lucky, but the last week i was ONLY on 10m making lots of really nice DX contacts. Worked several new countries. So what is the cause? Propagation or the quality of the radio? Check out my log for the new DXCC. And all this with my 1,25m “dummy load”.
2) Regarding PLC noise, Wimo boxes and stuff like that. Check this video. This is with an idle PLA and no Wimo, just the NR from the radio itself. Amazing. On the HAM bands i hardly have any PLC noise, but if i get some i know the radio can handle it.
