Voodoo Vibe clone (Pangea vibe) - radio interference
« on: September 18, 2017, 09:12:52 AM »
Hi everyone,

I was unhappy with the boxing I originally did on my build of Brejna's Pangea vibe, and had also been getting some radio noise (what I believe is an FM station, 102.5--I live near a huge radio tower!). So I re-boxed it in a roomier enclosure and used enclosed jacks and shielded wire. I've confirmed with my DMM that the jack shields have continuity to the enclosure. Could someone take a look at this gut shot and let me know if there is anything about my wiring that could turn this thing into an antenna? The wiring scheme I used here was essentially the same minus the shielded wire, i.e. one ground point from the circuit board going to the dc jack, and one going to one of the jack shields, that is then connected to the other jack shield with a wire. Ground loop? And if so, can those pick up the radio given the right conditions?
