In high usage areas there may well be a conflict but I think it's something we'll have to live with if they use analogue video. I don't live in a high usage area but I'm slightly concerned in that the police are using drones here on the Fens. Apparently their video downlinks are digital into mobile phones via the internet but I have no idea what frequencies they use. So far I haven't detected any "hash" in my screens.
But to my surprise the picture was P5 and not a trace of the interference that we have had ever since we installed the receiver on the mast.
I have no idea why the interference has stopped but I hope it does not come back.
Perhaps others have complained about interference and the offending kit has been shut down.

In the future maybe the community would prefer a horizontally polarized antenna?
Dual diversity receiver and both?

An enjoyable outing and a fine day which makes a change!
G0RPH and G8AGN were portable at Ringinglow lay-by Sheffield, i was on the Moors at Saltergate lay-by nr RAF Fylingdales.
It's 124km path so a little short of the Southern DX achieved but very easy.
I was using Tarot modules on Tx/Rx for the first time and 80cm dish.
My 6cm PA still has an issue if i run it for too long so will need to fix that!
Good video both ways P4, P5 if you squint a little
At the end i tried my Tx with just the feedhorn (no dish) and 5W, i was still received P4!
Some screenshots from the video attached.

Any particular type of TX and Rx that people are currently using?
