I haven't ever seen any documentation on the interference issue and I have never had any complaints from any where we have our gear. We are co-located on Parish towers, leased space on various towers and then have some of our towers with space leased to other agencies. There are all types of RF on all these sites and we are running many (read very MANY) MTRB532's with no trouble. There are fire dept, sheriff's depts, (3 Parishes) ambulance services, water companies, HAM radios, farm 2 ways, local PD's, as well as cell phone and pagers on all of these sites. I feel assured if there were a problem - - I would have been the one to have found it as we stand a great chance of interfering with numerous "sub 200MHz" spectrum.
I will take a picture and post it as some of our MT RB532's are "nestled" in amongst numerous "sub 200MHz" antennas and have never heard a word from anyone - - - I don't doubt (as Scriv mentioned) that there could be some harmonics or RF radiation over Ethernet - but it cant be very high or very bad.
