If you have an engineering contact for Rogers Wireless let me know. Id send them an email.
Rogers Wireless had to file an application with Industry Canada to get the experimental license. The application form and associated correspondence will provide the name of a contact person at Rogers responsible for the application. Contact the local section of Industry Canada responsible for managing RF licenses and ask to speak with the official responsible for the Rogers experimental license. Request the name of the contact person at Rogers or a copy of the license application and correspondence. Industry Canada may not want to investigate causes of interference but they have an obligation to assist you in resolving the problem by identifying the license holder.
You should contact the Rogers individual and explain what you believe has happened since they activated the experimental transmitter. Ask for their cooperation in confirming that the problem is originating from their cell site. You might suggest arranging a time and date to turn the transmitter off for a brief period to confirm that the problems you experience are directly related to the experimental transmitter. You should also invite them to visit your home to confirm the problems for themselves and witness the effect of turning the transmitter off and on again. The license and operation is experimental so they should not refuse to conduct a brief shutdown to confirm the problem.
Your email should be civil, rational and to the point. You don't need to go into side issues about RF hazards and safety code 6. Anything that looks like a rant will quickly put you and your issue into the crazy category. Threats to send stuff to the media or make publicity trouble for Rogers won't aid your cause. Your objective should simply be confirmation that the new transmitter is causing problems. Copy your correspondence with Rogers to the Industry Canada official handling the file. If the issue becomes a public concern or you contact a politician for assistance, a 'paper trail' will aid your cause, assuming you are always civil in your correspondence.
There are several possible outcomes from the suggested test. One, the interference remains because the source is actually something other than the cell site. Two, the interference goes away and comes back when the transmitter is cycled off and on. In this case, the transmitter is causing the interference but it may be doing so legally, meaning it is operating within the parameters set by Industry Canada and in compliance with safety code 6. You would have to prove the transmitter is not operating in compliance with the license to get action from Industry Canada.
Lots of homes have experienced interference from broadcast and other transmitters operating completely within their approved technical parameters. AM stations are particularly good at inducing interference into audio equipment because every diode junction in an amplifier can demodulate the signal into audio frequency sound - intelligible music and voice. In the early days of radio in the 1920s and 1930s, people often listened to radio stations from miles away using a 'crystal set' that drove headphones. These devices were unpowered and used only the energy in the radio transmission to function.
The interference problem in modern equipment is usually caused in the amplifier or other device by poor shielding or a design that lacks suitable bypass filtering to short RF frequencies to ground. Electronics are often 'value engineered' by removing components that low cost manufacturers decide is not necessary for the equipment to function. I have heard stories of companies taking reference designs provided semiconductor makers and picking components off the board until the equipment stops working. An RF bypass capacitor for the DC power trace on a circuit board may cost 5 cents but leaving it out may not cause any problem unless you happen to be close to a transmitter site...
Your television set is experiencing problems because of the signal ratio between the cell transmitter and the the broadcast stations. You may be getting tuner overloading due to the high signal level. You would probably experience the same or worse problems if someone located an analog TV transmitter on the same channel with the same power in the same place. You would see black sync bars and possibly an overlaid picture floating around rather than noise.
Experimental operation inside the current television band is part of the problem. The TV tuner has no filtering to block the unwanted signal. After the August 2011 transition, you should be able to install a low pass filter in your antenna line to block all frequencies above channel 51 and prevent tuner overloading. You could ask Rogers to provide you with a suitable filter.
The health and safety issue may deserve further consideration but if the estimated signal level is 17 dB below safety code 6 levels as reported in one of the posts in this thread, you are talking about a signal less than 1/50th of the allowable limit. If you choose to complain about this level of signal you a just entering the broad and unresolved debate surrounding safe RF levels.
Over the years there have been many instances of new services causing infererence with existing services. Back in the days of CB radio, some guy in a neighbourhood would get a CB set and wipe out reception on TV channel 2 because the second harmonic of the 27 MHz CB band falls in the 54 to 60 MHz assignment of the TV station. The CB radio could be operating legally but the signal level was sufficient to cause tuner overload and generate the second harmonic inside the TV tuner. The solution was a high pass filter to block the 27 MHz signal from getting into the TV tuner. In some cases, the CB owner might have to put a high pass filter into the antenna line to ensure that second harmonics from the transmitter (type approved and operating legally) did not get to the antenna.
In the case of the LTE transmitter, I would be very surprised if the transmitter is not fully compliant with the Industry Canada technical requirements. The transmitter is experimental in Canada but the equipment is commercially available and deployed elsewhere. The equipment manufacturer does not want to create problems for its customer, the wireless company, or be forced into an expensive retrofit program to correct a problem. Wireless companies spend huge amounts on equipment and when problems occur will force the cost of remediation back on the equipment supplier including the labour and inconveniece of swapping equipment. The telecommunications equipment manufacturer doesn't 'value engineer' like the low cost consumer electronics guys.
Over the years, many homes and businesses have experienced interference to their electronics when other parties legally install and operate RF transmitters nearby. At the end of the day, I think the most likely cause of your problems will be your consumer electronics and the use of channel 58 for the experimental transmission. Post transition, a low pass filter will keep the RF out of the front end of the tuner and should restore TV normal reception. As a goodwill gesture, perhaps Rogers could arrange for you to receive basic cable service until the channel 60 broadcaster puts a digital signal up below channel 52 and you get a low pass filter.
