As the environment becomes more and more crowded in the RF realm,
interference has become a major issue. Far more than simply an occasional
nuisance, this phenomenon has the potential to seriously interrupt
the conducting of business, personal communications, hobbies and
even critical life support monitoring systems. As a radio control
model hobbyist myself (see my
Website), I have been aware for 30 years about the perils of
interference and the profoundly disastrous results that can occur
is left unchecked. Preventing interference is a big part of the
cure, since it is not always possible to simply design a receiver
that can reject the interference. The resources listed here should
help you find the assistance you need.
