Reporting radio-frequency interference

Radio-frequency interference can arise from several sources, not all of which can be controlled by regulation (atmospheric conditions, for example). Symptoms of radio-frequency interference can include reduced range, messages not being received, distortion, unwanted signals or noises (typically whistling, popping or buzzing). If detrimental interference arises, it is important to first establish that the source is not locally generated (e.g. faulty equipment) before reporting it to Ofcom.

For further information on reporting interference to Ofcom see Appendix C
