Default Re: Spitfire Am Transmitter Hum (Buzz)

Modulation hum is a phenomenon of mains operated receivers, and can be particularly noticeable on a local strong signal.
Hum modulated onto the carrier of your transmitter is not "modulation hum" in this context.

What you haven't told us, is whether or not you have tried a battery operated radio with your transmitter.

One possible reason is that the Spitfire puts out a stronger signal than the SSTRAN. Modulation hum tends to exhibit itself on strong signals.
