Are you sure that the cracklin sound is not chesnuts roasting on an open fire? Maybe you are walking on the bubble wrap from your kit.
Also, do you think that the length of the staples are included in the 3 meter rule?
You mentioned the Dayton Hamvention (R). I used to go every year, but haven’t for a while. No excuse since I live within repeater range of the Hara Arena. For those P15er’s who don’t know about this, all I can say is it cannot be described, just experienced. If it has anything to do with radio, it will be there.
Hope your checkup is OK. I also am an older guy and just had my shots. Also had a CAT scan and I don’t even own a cat.
I guess my post doesn’t have much to do with radio….so on topic, I think the AMT3000 has great audio. Is the sheet metal box you are building for the AMT3000? I ask because the Ramsey AM25 and FM25 I have had terrible hum problems until I put them in their own metal boxes. My AMt3000 doesn’t and I am using it with the decoupling inductors enabled. I do get hum when I turn up the “compression” pot, but I think that it is coming from my sound card. If I unplug the audio, there is no hum. Going to work on this when I get a chance….too busy posting here to get this done.
