Sure, Call the FCC and have them pay him a visit to see if his rig is over the legal limit. Have him check his antenna set up for leakage.
I already call FCC 1-888-CALL-FCC, I was told by the FCC that it's most likely my equipment is at fault, and the FCC no longer investigates RFI complaints to telephone, TV or entertainment systems and I was instructed by the FCC to contact the manufacturer who made the defective equipment for a solution. (What a $%@!)
i know the feelin , i had your neighbor a few years back, he had a giant antenna spewing out static all over the neighborhood.
all it took was one simple visit to his house to correct the problem,i dont know what he did to make all the interference go away but away it went.
this neighbor of yours should know a few things about his rig & might know how to adjust or add somthing to stop the interference.
have you talked with the guy?
Invite him over to your house to hear what his equipment is actually doing to yours. He may appreciate the problem more, and may be spurred onto some ideas to fix it. Serve refreshments and talk about possible solutions, not problems.
He might even like hi-fi enough to ditch his other hobby... hammers are notorious gearheads.
There is a little device called a "TVI" filter that your neighbor can insert between his radio's output and his antenna. It should solve the problem and clear up the RF. The TVI is very cheap and if your neighor is at all friendly and a responsible ham operator he should have no problem what-so-ever in adding the filter.
I try the TVI Filter, it don't work. Try move around his antenna, it also don't work. However he is getting married and moving to Fair Oaks, California (with his toys). I suppost my Ham Radio Interference is also gone forever :-) I just hope his new neighboor is not a Audiophile :-(
Anyway, thanks for all your help.
Make sure he takes his antenna w/him when he goes... You don't want your new neighbor to pick up the hobby due to the convenience of an antenna already in situ.
I used to live close to the DC beltway and occasionally picked up tranmissions from truckers who presumably had hotwired illegal power amps to their radio rigs (I believe they call them seat warmers). Since it was intermittent, it was hard to say if it got fixed, but I think using: (i) covers on coax inputs to the pre and (ii) short shielded interconnects helped considerably.
What was the Dilbert quote... er... "Very few problems cannot be solved with the selective use of high explosives." Something like that. ;)
