Hi Paul, I'm in Ashhurst, a small village about 15km from Palmerston North in the Manawatu. Now that I live alone, I have complete control over the computers and TV's so the QRM is not so much of a problem, although I believe a neighbour has a plasma TV! I make up my own antennas and baluns to keep a lot of noise out but I found the laptop chargers make more noise than anything else, some LCD displays and printer power supplies too. Anything with a switch-mode power supply is suspect.

WSL, WCC and WSC - the most used coast stations on the US East coast - apart from CFH!

Best 73.
Cheers - Martin
