Radar at Beijing`s airport was affected by interference from radio-controlled cameras in a building nine miles away, potentially putting flights at risk, state media said. The radar at the airport was plagued by fuzzy signals for almost a week because of three mini-cameras with radio aerials installed in elevators at a dormitory, the China Daily newspaper said. `The radio was using the same frequency channel as the airport radar, therefore, largely dampening the performance,` Su Qing of the Northern China Air Traffic Management Bureau was quoted as saying.
