I checked the level in the shack this morning.  When I turned everything on
I had about a 2 on the meter.  Not bad for out there.  It had climbed to a
3.5 when I came into the house.  I checked the receiver in the house and
only had a 1, then I realized I had left the antenna connected to the shack
receiver.  Conclusions, to do away with the noise do not hook up an antenna.


I still could hear noise on the AM radio around 1600 KHz.  I did not go
looking for it yet.
