Rob Leiden K1UI is a newly appointed Asst. Director and is spearheading a New England wide program to get teams together to train and operate equipment to find, report, repair noise interference. See below for his invitation:
One of the biggest problems faced by amateur radio in this era of new technologies is the growth of noise that interferes with nearly every aspect of our hobby. Solar panels, LED (including pot farm grow lights) power supplies, dimmer switches, computers and many other devices generate interference as do power line failures, cable TV leakage and other service malfunctions.
The New England Division is creating RFI teams, trained and equipped to help hams find and fix noise problems. One has started up in the EMA section and our goal is to have at least one in every section.
If you have both the background and interest to lead or join your section’s team, I encourage you to contact your section manager who will work with Division Leadership to establish RFI teams throughout New England.
