[HFbeacons] Re: Beacons 30 March 2012

Hello Bill
 Well I have a problem here.It might be with my beacon.But I'm not sure yet. I 
cut the beacon power back from 25 watts to 5 watts now to see If the problem is 
still there.If It Is I will take the beacon off the air until I can figure out 
whats going on.I have a Ham friend that works for the cable company here. He 
had a tech come to him and asked him if he new a ham that lived on my street. I 
was told I'm getting in TV's,telephones and all there electronic devices in 
there homes and there are 3 different homes this is happening to.My wife one 
day had a knock on the door and they asked if they could talk to me and she 
told them I was at work.Than he told her the interference is going on now.So 
the only thing it could be is the beacon.The cable tech said that he is seeing 
a spike on his spectrum analizer.Oh well I'll keep you posted .No neighbors 
have come to me yet but I was told the tech told my neighbors that nothing was 
wrong at there homes and said
 they might want to write the FCC.

 Good Afternoon All,



Second day in a row that I can call hectic......Thunderstorms in the
area ..On and off light rain now the weather alert radio sounding off
with a severe storm in my county..... A bit dis-disgruntled with my ISP
switch to fiber optics...... Un suspected by the technician as they
buried the cable a control line for my yard sprinklers was
cut.......Also, the buried power line to my lawn equipment storage
garage  severed....... My time at the radio has been limited and the
beacon has been un-plugged most of the day because of the storms.
