This is what the band looks like.

I have been plagued with high noise from Solar panels across the street. Then another house came on line. I have +20db noise from NE to NW. Gets less as I move around to the south.

Then about a month ago a large signal showed up. It moves around. Sometimes its on 50.240 then drifts up to 50.300. Never know where it will show up. Never goes away. It has been aroun 50.260 and 50.313 most days. So now digital is unworkable.

Then 2 weeks ago a wide band (300kz) pulsing noise showed up. It starts about 48.500 and tapers off about 50.600. I am demodulating 2 FM stations in the bandwidth. 92.3 and 93.2
It sounds like a leaky cable TV or something mixing with these 2 stations. It is on all the time and is 60 over 9 looking NE.

I give up.

Can’t you get FCC and/or local ARRL involved? I suspect the active TH group here in town could help you. I would not give up.

Hi Mike. FCC no money no people to do anything unless it is a unlicensed radio station. ($$)

Local group was not helpful last time I had the wireless mic problem. I had to track it down myself.

Ed,

I now have the wideband random pulse signal on my band display as well. It's centered on 50.220 or thereabouts. Like you say it's about 300 KHz wide. It comes through on the YL's laptop as well. From my location it seems strongest at 285 degrees.

I never wanted to take an interest in transmitter hunting or noise tracking but maybe it's time.
