Interference to Int’l Calling and Distress Frequency

Chris J. Smith, K1CJS writes on the SEMARA discussion list:

2182 KHz International Calling and Distress frequency has had interference since 1800 EST 21 NOV06.

FCC investigated last night and narrowed the source to possibly be on the island of Nantucket, MA.

FCC investigation continues tonight and has asked the USCG for assistance in isolating the cause of the interference, which sounds like a walking or trotting horse.

Canadian Coast Guard has also alerted the FCC and the interference is affecting their operations as well.
