Avoiding causing interference to others
Information on this type of problem can be found in a number of RSGB EMC leaflets
Most modern electronic equipment is designed to have a reasonable immunity to radio frequency (RF) fields, but this may not be enough to cope with the
large fields that can arise from a nearby amateur transmitter.
The most important factor in reducing breakthrough into local radio and electronic equipment is good radio practice and particularly the siting of
antennas. More details can be found in the RSGB publication The RSGB Guide to EMC.
The RSGB has a whole section devoted to EMC issues.
There are a number of EMC leaflets that will help you deal with any interference issues. These include:
- No. 1: Radio Transmitters and Domestic Electronic Equipment
General EMC information sheet about breakthrough on TV, radio, hi-fi, etc
- No. 2: Radio Transmitters and Home Security Systems
An information sheet for neighbours or alarm installers about RF triggering of intruder alarms
- No. 3: Dealing with alarm EMC problems
Advice to members on how to deal with RF triggering of an intruder alarm
- No. 5: Radio Transmitters and Telephones
All about RF breakthrough on telephones
- No. 7: Protective Multiple Earthing (PME)
- No. 8: TV Distribution Amplifiers
For neighbours and TV aerial installers about solving breakthrough on home TV distribution amplifiers
- No. 10: Avoiding Interference to Nearby Electronic Equipment
