Electromagnetic interference to television (TV) reception produced by horizontal axis wind turbine generators or windmills has been identified and quantified by comprehensive theoretical and experimental studies. It is found that the rotating blades of a windmill can produce pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) of the total signal received, and that for an antenna so located as to pick up the specular or forward scattering off the blades, this extraneous modulation can distort the video portion of… CONTINUE READING
