Logically, all sound/audio equipment have humming..& how to cut this humming from going to the transceiver while TX..in this case, i have made one box, we called 'iBox'..all humming will be cut by some electronics inside the box..at the first i read at manual Equalizer, its will produce about +/-18db humming..& i was thinking how to make this noise not coming to my transceiver..have a very nice iBox done by W2IHY..it's so great ibox but i think another way how to homebrew it..with some idea given from somebody..i go to electronic shop to buy the thing..lucky they have it..i done the iBox about 1 hour..then i try..fuhhh!!! the is no humming/RF coming..this iBox cut about +/-23db..very happy & finally try to get 9M2ZAK to assist me to setting the audio..thanks ZAK for help..hehe..i will upload here some audio recorded done by ZAK soon..
