Well not quite a perfect crystal radio yet - I can't tune it to just one station! Maybe I'll add a tuner, one of the clear stations is the local Catholic Radio Network - I wonder how my Presbyterian members would like hearing that on our video recordings?

I had a busy week so haven't been able to pursue this more. I hope to pick it back up this week, but may be too busy again... Thx for the ideas, the radio signals come in whether the cables are terminated into a variety of equipment or not, and whether I switch around cables. I did put a resistive cap on the coax, no change either. Coax is brand new but you never know...

The ground to a questionable power strip (coax shield to electrical ground) is the only thing that has made one difference so far, and it is significant. I have a new ground rod I want to drive and hook up for a clean ground, I'll see what that does next.

This AM we had electrical problems instead: one phase out and another browning out & back with "variable" voltage. nice. Had to do church without the sound system, heat, and 1/2 the lights anyway. Fortunately I got a new shotgun mic for my other camera this week so we recorded on battery power. Projector and all had clean power so that worked at least.
