UPDATE 1/6: Another incident of mysterious radio frequency interference in Missouri. This time garage door remotes are affected on one street. From The Intel Hub here. Follow the link to St. Louis Post-Dispatch article.
Three strikes and it becomes really intriguing. Over the past few months there have been unexplained radio frequencies causing disruptions in the UK and Colorado. Once again a village in the UK is experiencing radio frequency interference. The villagers of Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire discovered their village green, a triangular park, was a dead zone for the operation of remote control car locks. According to an article in the Daily Mail (here) the location is close to Army barracks implying the cause is of military origin. However, barracks are military housing, so perhaps it’s a coincidence.
From the article:
A spokesperson for the Army, which operates Waterbeach Barracks, said: ‘We are not aware of anything happening at Waterbeach that would have caused anything remotely like that.’
Experts and scientists using sophisticated equipment determined the source was an ultra-high frequency radio band. According to the article the military uses such signals. The weird thing about this is that it seems to be within a defined area. It affects only the triangular park in the village. The signal was registered at the southern end of the park yet not pinpointed.
Once again the excuse is possibly a faulty TV or fridge. Seems to me any company making such appliances needs to examine why their product can knock out remote control devices in a huge area. I’m not buying this appliance excuse. I’ve never heard of this before until recently. I have a feeling it’s maybe some sort of military experiment. The signal has since magically disappeared.
MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
Back in December I covered in this post here, a similar incident in Arvada, Colorado where forty garage doors within a half-mile area ceased to function. Military is also suspected in that case. The article is here.
In January I also reported that residents of Kingsclere on the Hampshire-Berkshire border, UK found their heating, shower, doorbell and car’s remote-control door locks stopped working. The article from The Telegraph is here. The Waterbeach incident is 117 kilometers from Kingsclere.
