    Looks like a wireless data service antenna. I have one like it on my roof as do many around here since we have no wired/cable internet.

    Better yet, go to the building when it's open, go in and ask what it is....

    Be sure to be dressed in a full metal suit replete with aluminum foil headwrap just in case, too. These days, one never really knows...

    Looks like a 5.8GHz point-to-point network for internet or intranet, and frankly, not very likely that this would be the cause of your problem... No way should this cause any interference to aircraft systems.

    Are you having trouble with loosing GPS lock in the vicinity of that building? If so, how close do you have to be?

    Do you know how to look at the SNRs of the various GPS satellites your aircraft GPS device is locked to? If so, fly past the building while observing the SNRs. If the interference source is coming from that building, then the SNRs should get worse the closer you are.

    I agree that it's a 5Ghz wireless data antenna. Probably made my Ubiquiti. I have one on my house.

    WPVK969 Where are you? We are willing to help if you are still here. Is the problem solved? If so what did you find?

    It seems to be a Mw link, it can be as simple as WiFi link, CCTV link, Ethernet link, or something else.
    More likely the interference is not the RF link itself but the switching power supply or even PIM.

    The OP has provided practically no information to make any kind of an informed response.

    No, and he hasn't been back since post #4 where he said "Thank You" after Dave said it might not be the best place to seek help.

    I think we can consider the case closed, no?
