Continuous Tone Coded Squelch Systems (CTCSS) work well for keeping weak, 
annoying signals from opening receiver squelch.  CTCSS can't reduce or 
eliminate the effects of strong, on tune signals.  You either have to 
overwhelm them to capture the receiver or substantially reduce the unwanted 
signals in the direction of the satellites.

Of course, turning OFF the offending stations is the best way to reduce 
interference.  How to make this happen involves international relations, 
finance, diplomacy, and other things far over my head.....
