If you've ever wondered why DFS is REALLY necessary, take a look at this document ETSI TR 102 651 and the diagrams on pages 14 and 15.
I had never really appreciated how much trouble our relatively low powered WLAN devices could cause for RADAR. It turns out RADAR antennas have gigantic Gain numbers, and a very large number of side lobes - which I wouldn't have guessed for such a directional antenna.
Many documents list the relevant power levels and channel change rules, but I had never seen graphics that show the problem - and so clearly.
Thanks for sharing!
I wrote a blog post on weather radars and DFS (https://metis.fi/en/2017/01/weather-radars/). It didn't take me but a couple of days to get a screenshot of a interfering transmitter on a weather radar. It is so frequent. (And I didn't stare at the display for hours, I checked it occasionally.)
The radars use magnetrons to produce the signal. That's why the frequency tends to shift slightly. Magnetrons aren't as accurate as crystal oscillators used in Wi-Fi. The signal is typically kilowatts, because the reflections of the rain droplets is so weak. I had an interesting chat with a lady in our national meteorological institute. She was very happy to provide me information if it could help reduce the interference. I promised to spread the word.
I think the two sets of pictures together, i.e. yours and the ones in the ETSI paper, along with both sets of explanations make for a very compelling case for the DFS rules.
As I said before, I'd never have guessed the real effects - probably due to my lack of much RADAR experience.
