2.4 GHZ Garbage Dump



2.4 GHZ is an RF waste land..
It is a garbage dump for any and all part 15 and 802.11 consumer stuff.
I enjoyed working AO-40 SSB with great signals.
It was NOT a CW only bird as some with less than adequate 2.4 GHZ receive 
setups claim.
BUT, the last few months on AO-40 were troublesome....
Normal noise levels of S5 turned into 20 and 30 DB over 9.
It was traced to 2.4 GHZ internet provider 10 miles away, YES 10 miles away.
It was also traced to a government training center only 3 miles away.
Most likely WI-FI.
Please give up on the 2.4 GHZ dumping ground.
Please join with me and be excited about abandoning it and moving on to 
greener pastures.
Thanks
Rick
