R.F.I.---the continuing scourge of Ham radio, be it "traditional" horizontal oscillators of TVs going back to the 40's, or the raucous din of to-day's plasma televisions, exercise equipment, lighting systems, furnaces, electric fences, power line leakages, AD NAUSEAM. How have YOU handled cases where somebody's electric contraption seriously hampered YOUR on-the-air activities...?
[510 votes since 2014-07-31]
  I confronted the guilty party immediately & directly, explained my circumstances, & offered my services as a tool to remedying the situation.
  I don't like confrontation, so I contacted the FCC & let THEM handle the situation.
  I operated under self-imposed "quiet hours", in order to be a good neighbour.
  I simply hit the "noise reducer" button on my transceiver, & grimaced my way through it all.
  I took the offending party to court, because they refused to co-operate with me.
  I make it a point now to operate with my linear amplifier on at all times, & give THEM a dose of RFI!
  I am very lucky in that I have never, ever experienced RFI to my operations.

Strays Add a Stray!
If you take a radio apart and put it back together enough times, you'll end up with enough spare parts to make another one!
