[AMRadio] Bad Static Problem

It could be static discharge, I guess. Unfortunately, I only have one hf
antenna, so I can't try a different one to compare. I do have a 2-meter
vertical, so could try that on hf just to see if there is any audible static
with that.

Last night I had HIGH static on both my HF receivers. And I have been having
a problem with static discharge.

But it has not been snowing in Seattle. They wish it was.
