Re: Radar on uplink



What I heard could have been airborne because the level of interference
seemed to vary. When it was active it was present for 6-8 hours. I haven't
been using FO-29 or PACSATs so I haven't noticed that type of interference
lately. However, I did get S9 interference one night last week that
obliterated even the AO-40 beacon. I suspect that someone was running a
wireless LAN as the noise was very bursty.
