Someday in the next few years I hope to relocate to a house with greater
acerage where I may pursue ham radio without neightbors being too
close. I had in mind 3 or more arces so that I might run legal limit on
the HF bands without bothering too many of my neighbors.
I was earlier today looking at a property for sale (just browsing
realtor sites online) that pretty much meets all of our requirements.
When looking at a satellite view of the house and land I found a cell
tower probably not over 200 feet away from the house.
This close to a cell site might be a real problem (or not). I can
imagine that switching supplies and computers may cover the HF bands
with switching hash. I can also imagine that a KW on 75 meters might
also make it's way into the cell system equipment giving the cellular
operator a fit. Regardless of who is technically right or wrong, I don't
need to buy into aggravation.
Does anyone have any personal experience with living adjacent to a cell
sight with HF gear?
