Do you live near this town. You would think the town would experience problems in other locations if it was a drone using countermeasures.

The mystery itself has been solved:
After investigation it was determined that there was faulty consumer electronic equipment stuck in transmit mode in the area, which was causing the interference.
A spokesperson with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada had more details.
"In this case, it was determined that it was a remote car starter. It has since been deactivated and the interference has stopped," Hans Parmar said, in an emailed response to CBC News late Friday.
Store management added:
"We want to communicate that this was not the result of any intentional criminal activity, or any other activity that was speculated."
They also indicated that the offending "consumer device" was not located on the store's property, but was located nearby.
Seems to me to be a pretty piss-poor design in either this remote car starter, or the affected vehicles, or both.
