USB cable recommendation?

Postby KE2KB » Tue Feb 21, 2017 11:24 pm

Can anyone tell me which brands of USB cables work best with the RSP1? I have several that were not suitable, because they caused RFI into the RSP through the antenna, which is an outdoor wire with un-un transformer. The one I am currently using is too long, so I need a shorter one.
I suspect that I need a cable with twisted pairs of wires.

Any suggestion?

Frank, I'm using a shielded one-footer that I got on Ebay. I have ferrite cores attached at both ends. Seems to be working fine. My antenna is a tuned balanced dipole.
