You didn't say where the parking lot was located. Is it private property or a paid lot?

As a resident of coastal nc I can tell you that our cg station doesn't have helicopters assigned to it but they do on occasion have to land one to pick up an injured boater. I treat it as a hospital

What "interferes"? are you talking about the transmission frequency of your remote/UAV? I can't imagine the frequency would interfere with USCG operations.
What exactly did they say? "don't operate here because it interferes." That's too vague. I would have asked what they meant. Maybe they expect a helicopter to regularly land?

Wouldn't matter, flying in a MOA isn't restricted. You didn't say who asked you not to fly. Check on something like Airmap (or look at a sectional)to see if there are any flight restrictions in the area, if not, I would politely decline to stop flying. Even an airport operator has to have a legitimate reason for asking you not to fly within the 5 mile radius.

If you want to go back, I would call the CG base and ask them about any interference concerns, make sure you get the name and rank of the person you speak with. Then call the park department, explain what happened and tell them of your conversation with the CG. Ask them if there are any other concerns or issues that would prevent you from flying. Assuming that they can't give you any, go fly and if am other employee tries to pull the same thing, let them know what you have done and 'suggest' that they talk to their bosses. I don't usually condone or encourage confrontation, but too many pilots are getting the run around form people who don't really have clue.
