5G interfering with satellite reception at ABC in Melbourne

It seems that the rollout of 5G is interfering with satellite reception at the ABC's Melbourne Southbank site.

It's been suggested, in jest, that it might be Huawei equipment that's weaponised, but that's not the case. Probably just desensing due to high local signal strengths but interesting.

Speaking of 5G, there is work being done on a cell tower near my home. I asked one of the technicians if it was 5G.

He told me that there is congestion on 4G here and the upgrade is to add a new 700MHz 4G service. Being a lower frequency it should also penetrate houses better.

Nice to meet you. I enjoyed watching your blog.
I also have great interest in the delta loop.
We have developed the original delta loop.
It would be nice if you could search on
"Boomless Delta Loop Antenna" and view my blog.
