Radio Interference EGAA Approach
« on: June 03, 2022, 11:56:03 AM »
I've been hearing multiple reports of interference on the EGAA Approach frequency, 133.125 , reported from various aircraft approaching the Carrickfergus area.
Usually they report a loud 'buzzing' noise , but it subsides after they leave the area.
Seems to be very localised as they report soon after that it has gone.

Just wondered if anyone in the Carrick area has heard this on their scanner?
( I'm in south Belfast, but quite high, and sometimes hear a buzzing that can last for hours, then it disappears , but I'm not sure if this is the same interference)

I'm between Whiteabbey and Greenisland.
The scanner has been going all day today and yesterday and have not noticed it.
However, Marine band has been iffy for last few days. Scanner was periodically tripping on 21 (157.050) and 67 (156.375)

Is there any major building work going on in the area, I am thinking a crane or something that may need radio comms with the ground.
Or perhaps drones being operated nearby.

The circus is in town for the last 2-3 days, there's dredging in the harbour & marina, there's been a little group of NATO ships (way) off whitehead ....  and UUJ & Seapark are occasionally "noisy" (but not at those frequencies)
Still sounds good to me!
