Simon—

Post the url after running it through TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a Tiny URL so that the Sailnet keyword autolinker doesn't rip it apart on you. That's what Cam and I both had to do...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hi,

I have a noisy onboard Alder Barbour refrigerator. Gets into my SSB radio on all bands. Any ideas on suppressing this EMI. I've read about toroids and inline filters for the DC supply to the compressor unit. But I'd rather not go thru expensive experimentation if some one else has already 'doneit'. thanks

I think it's fairly common practice to turn the fridge off when using the SSB. Just remember to turn it back on when you are done.
