I just read this request for help on a guitar list I belong to. I
don't have a great answer for him so I'm posting it here and maybe
someone has a helpful suggestion.
----- question follows------------
Here's the situation: Leslie and I just completed an addition to our
home. It includes two Hunter ceiling fans that are independently
controlled by two remotes. The remotes are RF, not infrared, and
On Monday, we're sitting in our new room with these fans when the
fan clicks on and starts rotating at the highest of 3 speeds. All by
itself! We can see the remotes across the room. Nothing touched em,
Yesterday, we're sitting in the same room when it happens again, only
time it's the south fan at the slowest speed.
We live in an very low RF environment beyond the boonies in rural
Carolina. My cell phone doesn't even work here. No household
were running; there is very little traffic near us so it's unlikely
from 2-way radio splatter; no garage door openers nearby because are
neighbors are not near; I'm stumped.
There is a mountain peak about five miles away that does have RF
it, possibly including weather radar. But none of this is 350MHz to
knowledge. And five miles is a haul.
No one ever mentioned if our addition is built on an old Indian
or anything like that. But, hey, anything could be possible.
this close to Halloween. Woooooo!
It's not a big problem but "I gots to know." Any suggestion on what
be starting up these fans is appreciated.
