Hi all AO-51 users in Spain,
During the last couple of month one of the largest sources of QRM
on AO-51 are unlicensed operators in Spain as far as I can tell.
Now it is possible to hear them since the PL tone is not needed.
I know it is not easy to get rid of them - but I would like you
to identify the "intruders" and report them to your FCC.
You are many active users of the AO-51 FM repeater in Spain.
Therefor it should be possible to find them and do something
If you do not want to report it to your FCC yourself, you can send your
reports to me with city name, time and company names or other
information to identify the intruders.
The 2 metre band is primary for radio amateur use - that should
make it possible to do something about the misuse.
I feel that it is a great shame that AO-51 can not be used by
low power stations because of these unlicensed operators.
Some of you have been active in removing problems coursed
by radio amateurs before.
Yes - I know there are problems with stations in the Golf Area
and from telephone networks in the Northern Russia both to
AO-51 and to AO-27. Let us hope someone will look into
Excuse my English but it is not my native language as well.
Please no flames
