  1. Default High voltage line: is this a splice? what kind?

    Featured Sponsor

    Can you identify these photos? I believe the first is an "automatic splice". The second/third appear to be a splice, but I can't find any information on it.

    I am having problems with radio noise / interference (RFI, EMI, EMC). Thinking maybe this could be the problem. More to come on that later...

    Yea the first one is a splice,Im guessing the other two is a piece of rubber taped onto the wire due to the trees rubbing into the insulation and maybe it caused sparks.Just a guess.

  3. Default High Voltage line

    I have to agree with Reppy about the taped up line hose. There may be a defective or broken insulator or pin causing the interference.

    I have to agree with Terry....I think your looking at the wrong place if you think this is causing interference....might be a bad neurtral connection,a loose nut on a bolt causing the washer to vibrate....let us know when you find the solution.

    First picture automatic sleeve on hendrix or some other sort of insulated overhead conductor and the other pictures as the rest have said is a piece of gut taped to the conductor. An old AM radio is about the best thing for finding interference.

    Yup. anybody's guess what's under that gut. Seems it would have been easier to trim the dman tree when they put the gut on.

    I have to wonder...does the interference happen around the clock,or is it happening when theres a high wind,rain,ect?....And Poot explain...your hill-billy talk lost me....back to the doorbell chime transformer.....are you saying it happens when its going bad or what?
