How can mux 60 still transmit when 4g is at that frequency ? This is already a problem! You must be aware of this ?

Simon: C60 is not used for 4G. C60 is 785MHz which is the last UHF channel below the frequencies used for 4G, which start at 791MHz.

Simon:

Further to that said by StevensOnln1, if your reception is being affected by the presence of 4G signals, then you should have already received a filter from at800. If you have not received such, then contact them at Contact us | Advice or general enquiries | at800 and ask for a free filter.
