The true fear here isn't retaliation --
it should be the fear of your neighbors
thinking that all of the RFI is being
caused by YOU, the Ham. This will cause
you problems when you do upgrade and add
more antennas, thus becoming more visible
than the CB "operator". This is the last
thing that you want!

This is your obligation to your neighbors
and to keep the image of Ham Radio a
clean one. (Just don't tell anyone that
you are the one who turned this guy in,
and you should be fine when it comes to
potential retaliation.)

73 & Good Luck! de Clinton AB7RG

How about doing it the easy way? Stick a pin through his coax. If you're lucky, BOOM. No more KW radio and maybe no more CBer.

I strongly suggest against using any illegal or physical means to solve the problems, as that would or could lead to legal action to yourself.

    As far as your obligation, there's no specific legal obligation just because you hold an Amateur Radio License.  But that aside, you should file a complaint with the FCC, and get as many neighbors as possible to do so also.  (There is strength in numbers...)

You are not a "policeman" and are not obligated to report this activity to the FCC.
Retaliation is a bad idea.  You may wind up with the cops at your door.
Take a low key approach.
Approach the neighbor, explain the problem and try to enlist his help in curing it.  If you receive no cooperation or a hostile reception, mention that you might be forced to go to the FCC.

But, before you make the threat, be sure that your station is "squeeky clean" or you may find your operation reviewed by FCC.  They do not like to be in the middle of neighborhood disputes.

Don't make an anonymous report.  It is very easy to identify to reporting party. (I've done it)
Besides, it is a cowards tactic and will surely piss off the neighbor.
