The October issue of the IARU Monitoring System (IARUMS) newsletter reports that the intruder situation on 28 MHz is getting worse.
It says “We found much CB-like traffic (AM, FM, SSB) between 28 and 29.7 MHz in September and again in October 2011. Origins: Europe, Brazil, Far East. Besides that we observed, that the band is still crowded of numerous CIS taxi-cabs in FM. The conditions on the upperbands are raising, so we are realize the “apocalypse” on our exclusive band.”
The newsletter also describes interference on the 24 MHz band from Codar Radar and numerous “CB” operators.
