Windgenerator and noise

Hi, could you tell me if windgenerators produce noise on 20m and 40m. I had an horrible day on a summit with a wind-park. Finally I activated on 144 FM.

Hi Reiner,
Yes, they do produce QRM on HF bands and even on VHF.
They are not all the same, neither the QRM they produce.

Hello Reiner,
As Guru said, depending on the park, sometimes you have a lot of troubles, and sometimes you can deal with them.
The only thing I could propose is to separate apart from them to attenuate the problem if the activation zone allows.

Ok, thank you. There was no way to go away, a small but very long windpark. I activated on 144 Mhz. It was a lot more work but I achived 5 contacts.
