1. My computer is down stairs. The Radio is upstairs. Computer and Radio are both close to the stairway. I'd say they are about 10-12 yards away?
2. The interference is loud static in the radio. Bzzzzz shshshhhh is the sound the radio makes. He keeps the radio on the couch. The back of the couch is like a barrier between the radio and computer. I found that when I put the radio close against the back of the couch and put the antenna DOWN, it helps a lot. The radio doesn't need the antenna up anyway. Also when I touch the antenna, the static seems to go away. Maybe I should discuss better positioning of the radio with him. But its the principle. It shouldnt be doing this!
They are plugged into different outlets. Different circuits too.
3. This is a good quality OCZ Modular 80 plus 500w power supply. I believe its a very good PSU.
Don't use the computer when grandpa listens to the radio? I might as well go kill myself. lol. Thats what I try to do now. If I can get a real job, I probably wouldn't be home those hours so that would solve the problem too.
Right now I'm looking for a good gently used labtop. This computer is to be used for games, but a labtop could be used for everything else without having to come down here and fire this thing up everytime. Plus I can post on BC while I'm on the bowl (terlit that is). Just the thought of that disturbs me. hahaha.
But yeah, I'm really thinking of the sandwich thing. I have lots of cardboard and enough foil.
