RE: [Smartuners] SG230 RF Noise
- Hi Bill,
Just letting you know your message about noise was read. Sorry no one came
back with any answers. Did you try to see if there was noise when physically
bypassing the coupler and going straight to the antenna?
If no noise, I'd try the light bulb test?
Check the jumper settings and confirm if they are set for tuning
elements out on receive. If they are in, the processor remains active
and will create some noise on some frequencies.
