Summary of Results of Measurements and Tests Related to RF Interference at Bath, Maine

September 17, 1997

The major objective of the measurements and tests performed at Bath was to determine the mechanism by which interference is occurring, and to recommend technically feasible solutions to the interference problem. Technical feasibility of a solution does not necessarily mean that the solution will be considered to be practical or desirable from a standpoint of cost or other non-technical considerations; it only means that the solution will work under the limits of known laws of physics and current state-of-the art knowledge of electrical engineering principles. Our purpose in performing the tasks at Bath, performing analysis of the data from Bath, and in writing this report is to set forth all possible technical solutions that meet these criteria. The parties to the interference problem may use these recommendations to attempt to resolve the interference problem on a technical basis.
