CEPT Annual Radio Interference Statistics

The CEPT has made available the annual radio interference statistics for 2013-2017 based on submissions by national regulators, including Ofcom

Ofcom's report to CEPT shows that in 2017 there were 99 cases of Interference to the Amateur and Amateur-Satellite Services formally reported to Ofcom:

  • 49 caused by non-radio devices such as electrical appliances

  • 50 were from other radio users

These are likely to be a small fraction of interference Amateur Radio operators endure as most suffer in silence rather than submitting an online report on the problem. Interference can be reported via - https://www.ofcom.org.uk/spectrum/interference-enforcement/interference-to-amateur-radio

It is notable that Ofcom found there weren't any cases of radio amateurs causing interference to other services.
