Q) What should you do if you receive a report that your station’s transmissions are causing splatter or interference on nearby frequencies?
A) Check your transmitter for off-frequency operation or spurious emissions
"Splatter" on SSB transmissions is high-order intermodulation distortion
(IMD) caused by gross overdriving. A transmitter will generate IMD if it is driven too hard. It is important to make sure that overdriving never happens with your transmitter or amplifier.
