Since this class of operator does not enjoy any interference protection under the rules, the mess will not get better.
Agreed. I've done some studies and found that in almost every case,
low band VHF will be used. There will be even more co-channel interference.
Invariably, some channels will simply disappear. Trying to find as compact
as possible antenna capable of RF 2-36 or Rf 2-51 is impossible.....
