US aviation regulator warns of potential interference from 5G spectrum plan

 And the spec expansion of 5g spectrum and services globally has now spooked aviation regulators latest is federal aviation administration, faa of u. s that has issued a special information bulletin, altering manufacturers, operators, and pilots.

That action may be needed to address potential interference with sensitive aircraft electronics. That is caused by the use of 5g tech.
