Complete powerdown does not help against RF noise / 2016-07-22

2016-07-22 Complete powerdown does not help against RF noise1 year ago
On wednesday everything in our house was switched off due to some electricity work. I prepared for this and made sure the radio was connected to a charged battery.

And the end result was that the noise levels around our house are at least the same when power is out. In the 20 meter band I noticed even stronger carriers which may be caused by the fact that the local VDSL modem was powered off at that time. I made one contact which I logged on paper with OE2YOTA the youngsters on the air camp in Austria.

I guess I will have less noise when the power fails in a wider area, as reported at This is what HF sounds like during a power outage at my QTH!
