The mysterious case of village with its own Bermuda Triangle

Quote:
The following day the group returned and used sophisticated equipment, including a spectrum analyser, and direction-finding techniques, to determine the problem.

Mr Piotrowski said: “A strong electrical interference source was radiating radio signals in one of the ultra high frequency bands at the southern end of the Green.

“The primary user of this band is the military. However, by Sunday, the problem seemed to have gone.”

He said it could have affected other wireless devices such as thermostats, remote light dimmers and switches and energy meters. He added sometimes this high-level frequency can be caused by a faulty electrical component, so residents should check devices for faults.

The group reported its findings to the communications watchdog, Ofcom, and an engineer was set to begin investigating the problem today.

An Army spokeswoman said she had contacted the nearby Waterbeach barracks and told the News: “They are not aware of anything happening at Waterbeach that would have caused anything remotely like that.”.
