New Format For Reporting BPL Interference To ACMA

Date : 30 / 01 / 2007
Author : Peter Young - VK3MV

The WIA has developed a new downloadable form for use when lodging a formal BPL interference complaint to ACMA, ensuring that all relevant information is presented in the correct format.

Amateur radio terminology is often different to that used professionally. For instance, ACMA staff expect to see received signal strength readings in dBuV (decibels above or below one microvolt), not S-units. Although reporting signal strength in S-units is the accepted practice in amateur radio it is not used by any other radiocommunications service and it is notoriously inaccurate.

The new form, which has been developed by Peter Young VK3MV, attempts to overcome such difficulties and should be used in conjunction with the WIA's BPL Interference Advisory Service. To view and download the new form click HERE.
