Re: [ARSCLIST] Effect of vibrations on audio tape
Speaking of interference, our campus is about a mile from the Santa
Barbara airport. We get interference from the airport radar (we think).
It's cyclical and we've ruled out just about everything else (elevators,
fluorescent lights). It's only picked up by things that are microphonic
like phono cartridges and doesn't affect the shielded balanced lines. If

We also get interference from

because of the interference caused by rail switching equipment and
insufficient shielding on their cables. Unfortunately, you won't know if
this is a problem until the rail line goes into operation.
