I've got one of those little ASUS IEEE netbooks. It works fine for my purpose but since I use it to control my SSB
(ICOM M710-RT) I noticed that when I plug
it in either to AC or DC then my SSB
starts picking up quite some noise
(even in the case the netbook is not wired to the radio
I even tried to power it with a DC plug
using a totally separate battery
bank but I keep picking up the same noise
which is not there when I run it on its internall battery
It must be the AC transformer (when I charge it from AC) or the DC converter when I plug it into the lighter socket. When the power cord is not connected to the netbook the radio
picks up no RF noise but I would think it stands to reason since neither transformer/converter have any load connected.
As soon as I plug it in into the netbook then there it is!
Any idea? Also the stereo is picking up some of the noise.
How can I try to reduce it?
