6AR Interference

6AR has had blank audio being piped through all the major command channels.

It is unknown if this is deliberate interference, or if it is a technical issue.

I heard this yesterday morning and this morning as well. Hopefully the tech's get on top of it. Now I'm no expert but yesterday morning I thought I could hear the transmission trying to end but it kept itself open.

Some have speculated that it may be malicious, but I think some repeater is stuck open somewhere.

The MOC is apparently down, and all comms are being routed to the Bunker in Belmont.

There's been some interference or a stuck PTT button since today at about 12:30pm. Anyone know some more about this?

Whoever it is needs to be hunted down. Very easy to do with the right equipment as they keep transmitting for long periods of time. You can hear a TV/radio or some kind of audio book type thing in the background. To my untrained ear, its malicious. You can't be accidentally pressing PTT for hours on end, and most DFES radios are set to beep and/or time out after a small period of time of which this isn't doing.
