Here’s another video by 767 pilot Juan Brown from his chanel BlancoLirio:


He addresses many of the points being claimed by the FCC and 5G industry, in particular the reason you can’t compare US 5G with overseas 5G.

FAA puts all kinds of restrictions on what equipment is required to perform certain maneuvers. You need a localizer, glideslope, etc. for instrument landings. Radars are made today that can reject out-of-band interference. If FAA simply required a certified radar that filtered out-of-band signals during those weather conditions, the airlines would retrofit and private pilots would also either retrofit, not fly in those conditions, or divert to land in better weather.

It's not an FCC issue, and FAA needs to require equipment capable of safely operating within the allocated spectrum.

For commercial airlines is it just old equipment or all equipment that has this error? That is, is there actually an off the shelf radio that would solve the problem?
