Abstract : In order to make maximum use of the radio frequency spectrum the effects of radio frequency interference must be minimized. A portion of this interference is generated by man-made non-communication type equipment such as ignition systems, electric motors and generators, arc welders, power lines, etc. A review of the literature revealed an extensive amount of work reported, primarily, in the form of technical articles and reports. In order to provide a single reference source, the authors have reviewed all available material on man-made radio frequency interference published during the past 30 years. Approximately 1000 references, many with abstracts, have been categorized in the general areas of causes, control, and measurement techniques. Recommendations for areas of further investigation are also included.
