Re: tv rfi



Hi All ,
The FCC is quite clear on this one The cable operator is responsible to fix
all of these problems as they are using frequency assignments that are not
to go beyond their cable system. Cable 24 is in the 222 MHz band and Cable
56 through 61 are in the 70cm band. If you receive complaints have the
complainant report the interference to the cable company. In my area the
cable abandoned CH18 because of numerous complaints.
