The article discusses radio frequency interference and ways for mitigating them. The author mentions that the proliferation of radio systems in many areas has caused a rise in noise floor in most cities and towns. The author reveals that better detection has made it possible to find sources of potential interference. Also discussed are the Ricean fading phenomenon, carrier to co-channel interference, and mitigating techniques like moving of radio sites and adding of antenna spatial diversity.
