I have a President Grant 2 (latest model) attached to a Sirio 2016 antenna with low loss coax. Signal strength and set good but radio picking up a lot of static. Can anyone recommend a noise filter or other method of reducing the static.
Thanks

Hi Baz

What S level is the static/ noise level showing on the meter ? Are you getting the same level across the whole band range of the rig ? Does the NB button make any difference ? A really good thing to try is run the rig from a battery and then turn off the electric @ the fuse board , check the noise levels again , if some improvement then you know it’s something within your own home

Unfortunately that is about par for home base using a vertical in a town location ,some members have more than that , trying the antenna in a different location may help , going horizontal will most definitely help but your local contacts will be down signal wise , there is always a compromise is this hobby 🙁

It certainly has Barrie , 30 /40 years ago it was us causing the problems and finding difficult to find a free channel , funny how things go full circle , fingers crossed things improve @ your QTH or another member can come up with a solution

Have you tried using an external speaker with built-in filters? I use an Icom SP-34 (link below) which has two high-pass and two low-pass filters and it helps to get rid of a lot of noise / static.

Never even considered the street lights but thinking about it there is less noise during the day. I was thinking of an external speaker with a noise filter but if it is the street lights maybe that would just be a waste of money.

LED street lights in my street are a terrible source of QRM.
