Default Re: Murphy A124 Earthing considerations?

Hi.
I agree with Lawrence. If it's your set you should be aware of the issues and make sure its chassis is connected to mains neutral with a non reversible plug. It's no worse than I believe PME earthing that is if I'm not mistaken is tied to mains neutral and can float above earth anyway. As a Radio Amateur you will realise that when using an RF ground with PME it is your obligation to get clearance from your electricity "board" to coin an old phrase.

You must never tie a true earth to PME unless it's checked by engineers.
