430 - 440 MHz invasion of robots and SOLAR EDGE QRM Machine

In the past years we tried to find one clear frequency in the 430 440 MHz range for a local standby frequency

Not a single FM channel can be found clear of junk
al kind of data pulses every where pop up
Or  repeater outputs in DMR data show up after a few days on a new  found clear channel
Simply the whole 10MHz is overpopulated !
now i listen 434.000  unidentified pulses
Why do  HAM's  have identify  obligation?

Maybe we should also use DMR encrypted and let the software fight it out...

Then the SOLAR EDGE SE6k  QRM Machine
Was installed 3 year ago at my neighbors 50m north of me
It makes my radio deaf for weak signals on all frequencies  specially at 2 4 6 10  12 meters with  a noise band 10 20 dB  and digi trash carriers from MW till UHF
Our Agentschap Telecom say once it it installed those systems do not have to comply to any rules?

 Last weekend good tropo with inversion duct over the North Sea  i heard 23cm  3 LA beacons with signals to s9 +20  Special effect very strong tr…


This season my 2m station was ready for ES with some more power.
Spectaculair ES openings but happening else where in EU to EA8 and even D41CV
In my QTH at sea level it was a poor ES and tropo season. 
Except end of June 2m tropo  to EA1 and
23cm heard EA2TM 1296855  SK1UHF ES0SHF  beacon´s

We suffered unusual 3 heath waves. Temperature went up to 40C in PA no serious rain in months.

Last week of August spent in EA6 Costa de la Calma JM19FM
It is very beautiful in EA6 but my timing was not brilliant we left  at the start of a 10 day heath wave, the third this year.
And missed the EA8 ES 28 August opening to  I guess only south PA... 
Warm also near Palma but Tuesday a morning heavy rainstorm  and elsewhere in Spain heavy flooding's reported while in normally cool Groningen the temperature was up to 31 again
But it went over without damage here and in afternoon back to 28-30C

Took the U3S with me and a Wilson mobile magnet base  10m antenna 50cm vertical only
