.... Make certain you have conducted and documented a proper RF exposure assessment as required by the FCC. See

- Glenn W9IQ

Agree,............ most of the Amateurs I have asked about the required FCC RF survey, give me that "deer in the headlight" look. Shocked

I hate to say, but get a Lawyer quickly....I did, (From ARRL List)....You can go the nice route, (WHich I am sure you did)...But you will save yourself, plenty of time and believe it or not, money...The lawyer, will know what you can do, and what is needed to and moreover, what you need to do this moment...The ARRL lawyers are inexpensive...

There are do and don'ts (Right now when you have a dialog with your neighbor)...

Once I got my lawyers involved, all played very nice...

Agreed. 

Had a similar situation with a neighbor.  Neighbor had a defective stereo and telephone that picked up RF.  Neighbor would not listen to reason.   I really tried my best.  Neighbor got police involved.  Got an ARRL Lawyer right away.   

Lawyer basically wrote a letter to neighbor (and police) telling them to pound sand.  The lawyer went a step further and hired an engineer to measure RF.   Easily within limits. 

You are dealing with a control freak.  My guess is your neighbor has lots of time on their hands.  Miserable people like that seek out trouble.

It is so nice to operate with NO worry whatsoever.  I'm almost to 200 countries confirmed now. 

Cooperate but operate.   Be polite, but be firm.

Maybe I missed something, but,  who/what was first,  your antenna or the neighborhood?

My perfect neighbor of 20 years just sold their house.  The new owners haven't moved in yet.  Most of my antennas are down for exterior work.  I better not have any problems after putting them back up.

If you have one of those cheap dongles that will do SDR for HF see:

http://nk7z.net/sdr-for-rfi-survey-p1/

That article describes how to use an SDR as an RFI site survey tool...  Perform a good survey now, while no one is there, then do it again, after your new neighbor is settled in.  String a wire of some sort, then be sure to use the same wire for the second run after your new neighbors get settled in.  If you are really worried, just go buy an SDRPlay, they are on sale now at HRO.  See the article for details.  If you need help in setting it up, and assuming you are using an SDRPlay, write me off list, and I will walk you through the setup on the phone.  I have an extensive survey underway now, with most of the bands up and showing their spectrograms now.

Thanks,
