Report VDSL interference NOW

| September 8, 2017

The RSGB EMC Committee has been investigating VDSL broadband interference on the HF amateur bands for three years now.

This has generated a lot of historic data.

However, despite active lobbying, Ofcom and Openreach contend that the 150 or so reports from 50,000 amateurs do not indicate a major problem, when viewed from the perspective of 9.5 million VDSL installations.

To increase the amount of evidence available, the RSGB EMC Committee has set up a survey at to collect current signal levels at the frequencies of VDSL band transitions.

These measurements indicate the presence and strength of interference.

Please fill in the survey with your current readings, even if you have reported them before, and encourage your friends to do so.

The EMC Committee plans to present its findings at the RSGB Convention in October, then use them to persuade Openreach to take further action.

The survey closes on 30 September 2017.

This is the last chance we have to prove how many people are affected by this interference.

Your report could make all the difference to cleaning up the bands.
