IOTA continued

Here we are after a nap and still on break.
I started thinking about the situation with the rfi.  I don't know why it started all of a sudden; but the idea is that rf is traveling back down my feedline (coax ) and getting into my rig.
The only 1 - 1 unun I have is on the vertical before the coax goes underground.
Wish I had another some times but.  So a coax choke to the rescue.  One coax choke made under the desk on a platic jar and a six foot jumber seems to have done the job.  Will know more later this evening but initial tests are promising!
Nice to be home and have the scrap materials to do this with.
