5G interference could pose a threat to airline safety - FAA

Flight restrictions may be needed as air carriers adjust to 5G signals that could interfere with navigation electronics, the head of the Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday.

At the same time, U.S. aviation regulators are having “very productive discussions” with the Federal Communications Commission and the telecommunications industry over concerns about the 5G technology, said FAA Administrator Steve Dickson.

Aviation industry officials have said that it’s possible that the signals could disturb safety equipment on airliners and helicopters, while the FCC and the telecommunications industry have said there is no evidence of a problem.

Dear aviation industry, be prepared to be labeled conspiracy theory nutters, tinfoil hatters and loonies.

Of course there's no evidence of a problem you fools!!!

This specific case is where the one 5G band is on the same frequency as the radio altimiter

How it got assigned like that is any ones guess, probably lots of money or old equipment that was meant to be updated
