RFI from the new SolarEdge w/optimizers system (20 panels) just installed next door

RFI from the new SolarEdge w/optimizers system (20 panels) just installed next door.

Here is a wideband capture of RFI from the new SolarEdge w/optimizers system (20 panels) just installed next door. Characteristic 200 KHz spurs clearly visible from 10-30 MHz. What is not obvious is that the entire 40m band (and more) is elevated 14 dB with 120 Hz buzz. Antenna: Fan dipole at 15 ft 40, 30, 20, 15m. Located 50 ft from the nearest solar panel.

Rcvr: Anan 10e

Software: CuSDR
