Re: South America QRM?



The UO-14 uplink interference is not taxi cab type of conversation.It 
sounds like  com. nets and some has even bip tone and control stations.
The QRM starts from south of El Salvador and persits over all South 
America,in my sat. foot print. My location is FI96.As per my findings, 
it is originated in the Costa Rica, Panama and or Colombian area and as far
as I understand, conversation is related to material transport, land related
and other bussines.The stations output are well powerd because they block
completely the UO-14 chanel.
