Russische radar verstoort 20 meter band

VRZA - Sat, 23/03/2019 - 18:41

N.a.v. diverse meldingen van amateurs over ernstige storing in de 20 meterband heeft Agentschap Telecom (AT) een onderzoek ingesteld. Al snel bleek dit probleem bekend, Russische ‘over the horizon’ radar. AT heeft ook peilingen uitgevoerd waarbij het bovenstaande werd bevestigd. Op 20 maart heeft AT daarom een officieel ITU Report of Infringement gestuurd naar de Russische autoriteiten om aandacht te vragen voor deze uitzendingen in een exclusieve amateurband. Of dit uiteindelijk resultaat zal hebben is af te wachten, maar AT is niet de enige organisatie in Europa die dit probleem onder de aandacht van Rusland heeft gebracht.
