Radio Interference from LED Lighting Systems | National Public Safety Telecommunications Council
"NPSTC has been following the issue of interference caused from some LED and fluorescent light system ballasts, which have disrupted both public safety communications and cellular wireless systems. We have also been informed that some USB3 powered computer hubs will cause interference to public safety portable radios operating in the 700 MHz band. NPSTC will publish a formal survey on this topic in early November."

'Space bubbles' may have led to deadly battle in Afghanistan - AAAS Science Mag Oct 2014
"The jagged peaks of Afghanistan have caused plenty of communications difficulties for U.S. forces, but researchers suspect that the doomed rescue mission may have fallen victim to a less visible source of interference: plasma bubbles. Their research, published online this month in Space Weather, suggests that turbulent pockets of ionized gas may have deflected the military satellite radio signals enough to cause temporary communications blackouts in the region." "The Takur Ghar battle occurred during Afghanistan’s “bubble season.” It was a reasonable hypothesis, but proving it might’ve been impossible if it weren’t for a lucky coincidence. At just about the time when things were becoming completely FUBAR atop Takur Ghar, NASA’s Thermosphere Ionosphere Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics (TIMED) satellite had just completed a pass over the area. By using data from TIMED’s Global Ultraviolet Imager, scientists were able to confirm the presence of a plasma bubble between the battlefiel"

FAA Estimates $70+ Billion in Costs, Nearly 800 Deaths, Due to LightSquared Interference to GPS | Inside GNSS
"A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) “conservative” assessment of changes in civil aviation that would result from the effect of LightSquared’s wireless broadband transmissions on GPS would exceed $70 billion dollars, largely because of delays and changes in the planned rollout of the Next Generation (NextGen) air traffic control (ATC) system."

Primer on Frequency Coordination
"This paper provides a general introduction to the radio frequency coordination procedures used by common carrier microwave system operators and by operators of satellite earth stations which use the so-called common carrier frequency bands. The procedures are based on FCC coordination and licensing requirements, as well as related industry practices that have evolved over the years. The same procedures are used by operators in several other radio services which use the same frequency bands as common carrier microwave systems."

Receiving weather satellite images
"For best results, you need to use a receiver developed specifically for the reception of weather satellites, which has the correct IF bandwidth. I use an R2FX APT receiver. Unfortunately this receiver, designed and made in Germany where the problem of close-by pager signals does not exist, suffers from desensitization and cross-modulation when the pager transmitters operate. This results in received images that are scarred with ugly interference bands. Receivers made in the UK by companies like Timestep and Dartcom are reputedly better, but unfortunately they are a lot more expensive."

NTIA Report 01-384: Measurements to Determine Potential Interference to GPS Receivers from Ultrawideband Transmission Systems
"This report describes laboratory measurements of Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver vulnerability to ultrawideband (UWB) interference. The laboratory measurements were performed by inserting increased levels of UWB interference until an operating GPS receiver lost lock. At each interference level leading up to loss of lock, reacquisition time, fundamental GPS measurements (e.g., pseudorange and carrier phase), status flags (e.g., potential cycle slips), and position data were sampled. A variety of UWB signals were tested, including aggregates of as many as six UWB sources. Two GPS receivers with different receiver architectures were tested."

FCC PN requesting comments on draft rule for WCS/SDARS interference mitigation
April 16, 2010
"For example, the draft rules would create a guard band of 2.5 megahertz on each side of the SDARS spectrum in which mobile operations would not be permitted, resulting in a buffer between the two services. WCS out-of-band emissions would be reduced in steps to a level less than that of nearly any other mobile devices. The draft rules also place caps on the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) and duty cycle of the WCS transmitters. Furthermore, the draft rules also provide that, irrespective of compliance with the technical standards, if WCS operations cause harmful interference to the SDARS, WCS licensees have an obligation to correct such harmful interference."
"The draft rules would codify technical and licensing provisions for SDARS terrestrial repeaters. The draft rules also address concerns raised by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) about the use of terrestrial repeaters to originate local programming ..."

"National Public Radio (NPR) has asked the Commission to dump the Channel 6 protection obligations (set out in Section 73.525) which have been imposed on noncommercial FM stations for the last quarter century. While the proposal no doubt appeals strongly to NPR’s NCE-FM constituency, the television side of the universe – and particularly current Channel 6 licensees and viewers – can’t be happy..." "The protection requirements were imposed in the first place because the portion of the FM band reserved for NCE operations butts up against Channel 6, spectrum-wise." via Dale Hatfield

Military signals may jam garage-door openers

Between now and 2008, the military is supplying a new radio system to roughly 125 bases that uses the same frequency as the one relied upon by more than 90 percent of the remotely operated openers, Pentagon and industry officials say.

Automatic Monitoring System – Phase II: Business Case & Trials | Ofcom
2007 work
"Phase I of the AMS project ( has resulted in three prototypes and a high level business model. The concept of an AMS network is that spectrum can be monitored in real-time across the UK so that (i) unlawful spectrum use can be policed; and (ii) spectrum can be re-allocated where it is not being sufficiently used – either through an auctioning or a trading regime."
"Unfortunately, the cost of rolling out a network of AMS stations is high... This Phase II study is intended properly to investigate commercial deployment issues, answer key questions on market demand for the service and establish potential users’ willingness to pay."
