Hi, As I'm sure 99.999% will have gathered ( especially from the call) I'm a relatively new licensee, I have enjoyed several months of " cutting my teeth" locally by using 2m,( I feel 2m is great to learn about local operators and gain knowledge about correct protocol, and operating procedures etc, " many amateurs have been operating for many years and it's a good mark of respect to operate totally correctly") but I have now saved up and got an HF set. This is where the trouble begins ... I have set-up a temp antenna to use until I set up my proper longwire, the temp consists of a purchased 9:1 situated at nearly the end of the garden fence ( approximately 5ft agl) with an active sloping up to the facia board ( about 25ft up) and a random counterpoise running along the floor at approximately 90 degrees to the active ( counterpoise approx 7m long ) no gnd rod at present, but this is interfering with our TV ( which doesn't bode well with the station manager etc) however no neighbor has complained. My SWR is below 1.5:1 across most HF bands and my active length is 16.16m ( one of the typically "sweet" lengths), would the addition of an earth rod remedy the problem or should I look at choking the TV coax ( i.e. wind it round a ferrite in a similar pattern to a balun) or is the only option basically more sepperation between the wire and TV?
