Finding and Fixing RFI

Presented by Paul Cianciolo, W1VLFRFI (Radio Frequency Interference) has been a problem for Ham radio operators and SWL’s (Shortwave listeners) since the radio hobby began. Both from natural sources (QRN) and manmade sources (QRM). Things have changed in the last 20 years with the advent of widespread solar power, LED lightning , grow lights, digital computing devices etc. The technology boom has enhanced our daily lives, but at what price?

Titanic Commemoration - W1MGY

Well here is an opportunity to play radio for a few days. I had thought that since we cannot get together for the Titanic event at the Cape Cod seashore, we could operate from our home QTHs as some of us did for Marconi Day. And then compile all the logs together   if you send me your operating files. I have merged them together before, but don't quite remember how I did it. I'm sure there are a couple of you out there that could refresh my memory.   I had thought about operating around the clock from the time the Titanic left Queenstown until the time she sank beneath the surface.
