Re: [144MHzEu] Out of band QRM. Worst case ?
Just for your info:
Please note that in Holland there are pagers around 150-155Mhz pegging the
S-meter to S9+++60dB (no mast pre-amp used). Even after using a 4-pole
cavity 2mtr bandfilter (DCI), they are still at 9+10dB. I'm sorry I have no
real figures nor references to back this up, I though this might give you
just an idea what this will do to most mast-pre amps.
