Re: WLLH vs WNFT
In a message dated 5/6/99 5:59:01 PM Central Daylight Time,
<< t seems that there is a high powered 160 meter ham radio operator in the
whose transmitter has a spur on WEIM's 1280 kHz. frequency. In some areas of
the city, his signal overpowers that of WEIM. Because it has happened
before, I'm sure that it wasn't the board op's fault.
The interference is only noticed at night when WEIM is down to a kilowatt
the 160 band is open and it only happens a few times a year. The PD is
to track down who it might be, but he has had no luck yet. >>
Maybe a receiver tuned to the 160 meter band at the station to get the call
sign. If he is interfering with a station on 1280 something's wrong. Can his
call be determined on 1280? He has to be pretty close by to cause harmonic
interference with a 1KW station. Hard to hide a 160 meter antenna, have the
PD cruise the neighborhood.
Get an address and look up the call on the ARRL's call directory. I dont
think the FCCs Ham call directory is working yet.
last resort, get the FCC involved, they have become very agressive with
interference complaints. Big money in fines.
