A US Navy aircraft carrier making a port call in Hong Kong has mysteriously caused massive problems for people in the area trying to use their cellphones and other electronics, according to local reports.

The USS Ronald Reagan arrived at Hong Kong on Wednesday around noon. Immediately after dropping its anchor, people in the surrounding area found themselves unable to open their cars remotely and cell phones users complained of disruptions in service.

The Communications Authority for Hong Kong has confirmed it received inquiries and calls concerning irregular wireless service. A spokesperson for the US Consulate-General there said he had no knowledge of the carrier interfering with civilian vehicles.

Impacted vehicles were primarily Japanese-made, according to a radio communications expert in the area. The remote lock systems on these cars generally operate on a frequency of 315 MHz. This frequency is close to the frequency used by electromagnetic equipment aboard the USS Reagan.

    Why would the USS Reagan dock in a port controlled China when conflict is heating up between our nations? There are lots of other ports in Asia who are friendly to us. This seems weird. The Chinese could contaminate supplies and disable the crew, which would be an easy way to take out an aircraft carrier from inside out.

    Hmmm. Cutting cake with a sword...in essence China and America cutting the Ronal Reagan in half over Hong Kong????? Just a very odd symbol.

      Yeah, it seems prophetic to me. And it suggests the US Navy is somehow "in" on it since they hosted the ceremony.

    This is an acceptable reason to refuse the Ronald Reagon entry to HongKong. This is an intrusion into the safe operation of the city, and dangerous to civilians. Frequency of the ships equipment correlates with the civilian equipment plus the problem occurring with arrival is enough to assign the change.

    Could be the chinese trying to screw with the USS Reagan's communication capabilities. Maybe the chinese shot themselves in the foot?

    Maybe they were successful (in my opinion) screwing with the USS McCains communication and control equipment and thought they would try it on something bigger. Being a Marine General, maybe Mattis did not appreciate that?

    Hard to assign the change in cell service to the Ronald Reagan, IMO.
