It has been reported that American Baby Monitors being used in Japan are interfering with the radios used by taxi drivers on Japanese roads!  Taxi and lorry drivers are having their radio communications interrupted by the sound of babies cooing and crying!  It has been suggested that all the baby listening devices bought in America and used in Japan are causing the problem.

The source of the problem could be American monitors used by parents at a US military base in Japan.  The US military have discouraged their staff from using the American monitors, but despite the warnings, some are still using them and they are emitting strong signals on the same frequency as those used for telephone and radio communications.

It has been suggested that the Japanese authorities will visit the families using the devises as they are worried the interference will interrupt emergency calls of the police and ambulance services.

There are some 47,000 US personnel in Japan.  Many of them have children and lots of them use baby monitors.  Some of them use US monitors, and the sound of the babies on these monitors can be heard by all sorts of unsuspecting people!
