Re: Re: Illegal cordless phones (was Interference on AO-51)

The Senao model that you quoted the specs on is the one I have heard the 
complaints of 2-meter interference about, so I suspect that they're just 
very "dirty" units, and what AO-51 is hearing is a spur.  What particularly 
galls me about these phones is that their published base station TX range is 
in the aeronautical band!!!  You wouldn't believe the problems that they 
cause to air traffic control in some parts of the US, never mind the 
interference to the ham bands!  Anyone who flies at all should be VERY 
concerned that these things are out there........
