Dish Network passing blame

Besides the obnoxious ads and robo-calls at dinner time, it appears Dish Network is also trying to foist its equipment problems off on the amateur community. Here is the bulletin from the ARRL NV Section Manager

Dish Network customers in the northwestern portion of Nevada are suffering reception problems related to the local Reno stations which are downlinked from this system. The signal levels to their receivers seem to decrease during the evening prime time hours. When at least two of these customers called into their service line they were told that they must have a ham radio operator in their neighborhood who is causing the interferance. This type of bad PR can lead to more antenna restrictions and worse so we must head this inaccurate disinformation off.

Check with the ARRL for information about handling interference complaints and let them know of spurious campaigns like Dish Network seems to be promulgating.
