RE: serious S-band Interference problem

	It was pointed out to me that it is illegal to record or even listen to
cordless phone calls. I checked and that is indeed true. I have destroyed
all recordings.
	I wonder how I'm to resolve the interference problem when I can't actually
listen to the interfering signal? The signal is in an amateur band that I am
licensed to use. I think I'll write Riley and see what he thinks.

	You've given me an idea. I wonder if I couldn't modify one of these phones
to act as a beacon. Can you tell me what the  manufacturer and model of your
2.4ghz signal generator is?
	re. multi-channel operation. I haven't heard the phone tonight, so maybe
there's hope.

	Since I can't actually listen to the signal, there's no way I can prove
that it's interfering, hence the cordless phone user owns the band. They
don't even need to pass a law.
