    Yes, it's down converted, but you can certainly see the spikes, which are obviously not transponder signals.

    No, it's not clearly defined, but it's a good indication of the presence of interference.

    Hi all,

    Last weekend we performed another site test using the same method as before. The reason I am using a small vertical antenna is basically to sniff what is close by.

    I conducted 3 test, one at the current dish location, another (site 1) is located at the far side of the backyard next to a garage which is made of metal and out of view of the coms tower. The last test (site 2) is located at the other side of the house (brick home) and also out of view of the coms tower.

    The spectrum waterfall results do indicate a reduction of signal strength from the unwanted 5G signal. I cannot give a exact amount of attenuation with this measurement method but I am guessing it is several db compared to the noise floor.

    We are now arranging to place a spare 2.3m mesh dish at site 2 location.

    It will take another couple of weeks to finish this project so I will report again at a later stage.

    Thanks all for your comments

    Regards
