Announcements / Comments


  • Local noise; not far away: 3rd Order Intermodulation
    • Output of transmitter and another transmitter in the area are mixed, and sum to input frequency
    • Silent during the day, but “offending transmitter” is on during the evening
    • Potential solution: remove 88.5 receive tone


  • DMR on local talk group after this net
