Digital TV Signal Blocks Police Radio

Boston TV station disrupts Camco police system

A Boston-area TV station's new 24-hour-a-day digital signal is disrupting Camden County's police communications system, threatening public safety by drowning out calls from officers to central dispatch in certain kinds of weather.

Well, this could certainly cause some serious problems as the switch to digital TV moves along. Seems as though the assigning of the new digital signals was not thought through enough to account for these problems.
