SO-50 experiences QRM.

Postby m0lsx » Sun Oct 30, 2016 5:53 pm

I saw this on Southgate ARC's news site. I do not know about others here, but I have heard the wallies on 145.800 mhz using digital.

Recently communications through the SO-50 satellite, over North
America, have been compromised due to a terrestrial station using
145.850 MHz, the uplink frequency for SO-50. The station appears to
be located in the southeastern United States.
Amateur operators are reminded that the 145.800 MHz - 146.000 MHz
segment of the two meter band is reserved for amateur satellite
communications. Amateur stations should not be using this segment for
simplex communications, repeater links, or Echolink/IRLP nodes due to
the high likelihood of interference with amateur satellite operations.
