I live in the Washington, DC metro area (Northern Virginia)  And I need some help with jammers on the 26 to 32 MHz band.  The worst is on the CB band.  Around here, it is nearly impossable to use any part of the legit 26.965 to 27.405 MHz band becuase of people and their "foot warmers".  I am also getting stations that appear to be operating AM or SSB on the 31 and 32 MHz bands, (I am listening with a FM-only scanner).  Any idea how to get rid of these people, they are very annoying and cause an interferance with legit stations, including the Civil Air Patrol, who uses 26617 and 26620 kHz for tactical communications.

thanks

How much closer to the FCC could you be? (live)
Get specifics:  Dates, Times, Frequencies, Names(?) Callsigns (if any) Recordings. etc. etc.  Document everything that makes you think they are "Freebanders" or operating outside of their licese *(again if any license)*  Submit it all to the FCC's field office - heck you could probably "hand carry" it to them.

Then WAIT !  the wheels will move slowly... but someday you may read of their "NOTICE TO SHOW CAUSE" in the FCC ACTIONS REPORT.

Good luck... in any event, DON'T take matters into your own hands and go charging in with a sledge hammer to bust up the equipment.

Well, that was good for civies.

However, this is the USAF being
interfered with.

Report this to you Sqdn Communications
Officer who will initiate the proper forms
up to Group, and thence to Wing, etc.

The Air Force will call the FCC if they need
help, but it is not with in the realm if
a cadet to do this.

Why worry about the CB band to begin with?  Try using the ham bands and leave 11 meters to the "children."

I think if y'all read the post, he is not
worried about the Class D CB band, but the
USAF frequencies that CAP uses in the 11 meter band.

Also, CAP is not allowed to use the hams
bands for their operations, so that is not
an option.
