What should I do with all the cables connecting this to that? Coiled, folded, cut-to-length, wound on ferrite?
Anyone have the definitive answer to this? My rat's nest is getting more messy.
The cables I'm talking about are power, USB, RS232, and twisted pair. Basically anything that connects shack equipment.
I'm both looking for aesthetics, as well as RFI issues. Cutting to length is really not an option as the equipment can be moved. Along with the fact I'm not that good at re-plugging the cables themselves. I was really wondering what people do as a general rule. All the mains electric supply and networks are neat and tidy in their ducting. It's just those pesky usb to rig, or usb to device. I think I'll coil them see if it makes any difference to the RFI. I live in an area where I get between S1 and S5 noise level over the HF bands. Very annoying when signals are normally QRP for my interest. SOTA. But have to make the best of what I've got. Will see if there any other idea's come out of the melting pot. 73
