If the 10 kW day/1 kW night comes on and it’s too close to the
Part 15 station, I think the Part 15 station
will be crushed. In my opinion, I don’t
think anybody will notice the Part 15 station
in that situation. I would change frequency
anyway not to be crushed.
When my Part 15 was running, it was on 1700.
Then I heard another Part 15 station (at least
they said they were, I’m not sure – they might
have had their Part 15 transmitter up on a
tower) so I went down to 1690. It was dead clear
during the day. At night my signal got crushed.
However -I couldn’t hear anything on 1700 at night –
from that other Part 15 or whatever –
Whatever that local 1700 was – it
must have gone off in the evening.
So – just for fun – I rigged my station to automatically
switch from 1690 to 1700 at sunset – and back to 1690
at sunrise. (Sorry to those who have heard this
story so many times.) It was a goofy thing to do. From
an engineering standpoint it was a blast, though.
As mentioned – my 1690 signal got crushed by
interference at night anyway – so why not?
Back to the present. Let’s see what happens on Monday.
I’m getting out my Radio Plus Quantum DX Loop
for this one.
