Thanks for working to track this down. We need to do everything we can
to educate the amateur radio community so they stay out of the OSCAR
subbands. Interference from people operating IRLP/EchoLink/Cross-band
repeaters/simplex on SO-50 and FO-29 is always a challenge. At least
with FO-29, we have the opportunity to track them down. With SO-50's
PL tone requirement, we only get snippets of the interference in the
squelch tails of other signals.

He has found the actual signal ON THE AIR on 145.930 MHz in the Houston area and it is currently transmitting with the content coming from the very UHF repeater I identified. Coincidentally he is the person responsible for that very same repeater. SO, the interfering signal has been generally located, now it is a matter of narrowing it down and figuring out where it is coming from. Possibly a ham has his dual band radio set to cross band repeat, etc.
