Re: S band downlink on P3E



Ok, I ran S Band on AO-40 as well; my home, radio shack, and neighborhood are covered with 2.4Gig stuff.  The ONLY interference I ever received was in the form of 
Very short burst (pops) which any noise blanker was extreamly effective at removing.

The 5Gig band will be in the same shape as S Band is today.  I simply don’t buy into the 
Interference argument.
