...is causing signal interference and making the drone operate in a manner not expected by the owner. Which is something I've seen happen first hand when my friend's neighbour fired up some home build thing in his garage (We still have no idea what it is, but we now know it throws out massive white noise overlapping GPS signals and our 2.4ghz WiFi controllers and is powerful enough to have made the quadcopter enter its fail-safe hover mode trying to recover signal, and then get confused trying to navigate back 'home' when GPS timing became scrambled.)
The neighbour insists he has "no radio equipment or anything like that" in his shop, but something
is blasting out signals that screw with wifi in the area. Luckily it is a rural area and not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, as it really only affects a few households, but it is still annoying that he refuses to do anything about the emissions.
Why do you think the signals are coming out of his garage? What type of "home built thing" are you talking about? I'm not defending anybody, but curious. Faulty insulators, bad transformers, bad/arcing connections, etc., can all cause intermittent "radio" interference. Household items can be notorious for emitting "white noise". I knew a guy who's wife bought a nice "touch control" table lamp...he immediately started getting interference while trying to operate his HAM radio. Magically, one day while his wife was gone the interference stopped but also the "touch" feature on the lamp...most HAMs are somewhat handy with electrical items. Here's a good article regarding power line noise: http://www.arrl.org/power-line-noise
Anyhow, if you rule out things around your house then I would call your electric company and tell them you are receiving some type of electrical interference on your radio devices. If they have a problem with their system they want to know about it...they can rule in or out that their power lines are the issue. If they rule it out, then contact the FCC. Here is a link to give some guidance on filing a complaint: https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov …-TV-and-Telephone-Signals
Of course, your neighbor might be being nice and jamming your drone rather than blasting it out of the sky.
