I had a router thate interferred with a Yaesu FT-60R BIG TIME. It was wild. I got the rig based on the positive postings in the reviews here then when I got it (aside from some other issues I noted like battery usage and repeater issues) I noticed that it had a wicked loud rush that the squelch couldn't squelch. Turned out that when I went toward the bedroom where I had a Netgear wireless router the white noise got even louder. And there was no reliveing it. Noting that I didn't have a problem with the previous VX-150 I sold the FT-60 and re-bought the VX-150 and I've had no problems since. Also had no problems with an FT-817 which I bought to give me the 440 I wanted.

The only thing I could figure was that the extreme reception of the FT-60R (well beyond the select coverage of the VX-150 and the general coverage plus 2/440 of the FT 817) was so great in the high end of the spectrum (it receives VHF/UHF to 999 Mhz) were probably picking up a harmonic of the UHF wireless router frequency. Soooooo that's the scoop.
