      Goodness! A member for 6 months and 24 posts under your belt and you don't know why? Have you read any of the forum?

      The simple answer is that extensions tend to be noisy. Noise = lower sync.

      You were asked in a previous thread, which you seem to have abandoned, to post your stats from your normal position and from the test socket. If you had done this your problems could have been explained. You must run for a few hours in each position, a few minutes is no good.

      Examine your telephone extension cable. It should be twisted pairs (one wire wrapped around the other etc). Cheap cables are sometimes not twisted and will give poor shielding. Might be a possible solution.
