    I have had an issue with RF interference in the field. Operating the Inspire 1 on logging sites with logging trucks passing by every once in a while. On one occasion when the UAV was in flight about 50m in the air a logging truck passed between myself and the UAV. A very loud pulse could be heard on the truckers CB radio. I immediately moved the Inspire to have the truck away from the LOS I had with the drone.
    It did not appear to have any sort of effect on the UAV itself but the loudness of the pulse heard on the CB was alarming to both myself and the trucker.

    Has anyone had any experience with this? Should I be worried? Suggestions, comments, queries, concerns?

    Downward firing sonars? Odd that his CB was bothered by it. Could be an issue with his radio allowing it
