Be a nice guy and buy her aluminum siding and a metal roof, and bond & ground the heck out of it so that not even her cell phone will work from inside her house.

Should only set you back $40 K or $50 K.

Or you could move the antenna--why hasn't anyone suggested that?Huh :-)

I had an "intermittant" problem with RF changing the channel on the TV some years ago. Turned out it was the remote control that was getting the RFI. If it was left pointing at the TV then the channel changed. If it was pointed some other direction then no problem.

12 Inches is too close.
You can either lower power, install Faraday shield between antenna and TV, or move the antenna (or TV).
You do want more distance than that!
Combinations of the above will help, but distance is your friend.

If her TV is 12" from your antenna how far away is she? I think some RFE calcs. are very much in order.

Good luck
