Hi all. Is it me or does everyone have a problem with hearing any repeaters, or simplex, while driving past the Tenleytown towers? The S-meters on my Icon 5100 go to S7/S9. They don't break the squelch, kudos to Icom for recognizing the interference and keeping it out, but as soon as a repeater comes back to me and does break the squelch, all I hear is the QRM from the towers. Nuts. For me it starts right around the McDonald's on Wisconsin and lasts until just past Friendship Heights.

I would be curious to know who else has problems with RF towers in the D.C. area, where they are, and what bands do they affect.
