What a joke of a self-serving study! You think that maybe they could have claimed more interference if they had more TV tables to stack?
This appears to be nothing more than a paid study to combat any possible competition in any form to their paid membership. After all this is the same group that outright lied to congress and the public about the DTV fiasco. They made all kinds of outrageous claims and if you were gullible enough to call an 800 number they sent a letter to your senators and the FCC under your name without any previous notice to support their opinion.
They also have made false claims about LPFM to try to stifle any community based broadcasters.
For this survey to be believable they need to document complaints from the public. I find it hard to believe that anyone has complained about interference from any Part 15 device while sitting in traffic. I am skeptical anyone would set their device to a frequency in use because of intereference from the licensed broadcaster. It just doesn’t make sense. Likewise most of these devices are being used inside of metal vehicles, usually below dash level so the signal, and not on top of stacked TV tables. The vehicle metal would shield a great deal of the transmission. Also I’d be surprised that anyone would take the time to complain about a few seconds of interference, even if it did exist. If they did they would most likely complain directly to the FCC, not the local broadcaster, most of which would toss the complaint aside as ludicrous.
