Link: What Causes Radio Frequency Interference – Urgent Communications Article

Last month, we discussed radio frequency interference, starting with the different types of natural and man-made noise that have a detrimental effect on system performance. In this article we continue to examine the causes of RFI and then proceed to the devices designed to protect against it.
