It's startling how some hams can't seem to get along with their neighbors.
Theres nothing in part 97 that says you have to get along with your neighbors.

Getting along with neighbors is a privilege THEY lose , if its abused.
thanks for demonstrating my point

This entire discussion is childish and based on nonsense. I have been a licensed ham op for almost 50 years. I have never had a problem with a neighbor because of my use of Ham Radio. I have many ham friends and none of them have had problems with their neighbors. These arguments sound like they originate from someone with an awful lot of spare time on their hands. I am able to participate fairly regularly because of the type of work I do. The typical person who holds a full time job would not. I am now starting my weekend so I will have time but will probably spend that time on the air not in arguments which no one will win. The neighbor described obviously has problems which should be dealt with, especially if those issues include harassment, which if the description is accurate this certainly is. My ex neighbor who I am still friendly with actually offered to help me install my TH5. They never complained about any of my antennas. No one in my current neighborhood has said word one about my antennas. It's called being a good neighbor and minding ones own business. As to the argument that hams make bad neighbors emanating from a licensed ham, I believe that speaks for itself. I guess it isn't boating season and everyone needs something to do.

Exactly. An amateur radio license doesn't make one a doormat.

apparently, it also doesn't invoke mutual respect evidenced by the total absence of scenarios like this being the ham's fault.

If no one is doing it that way, there is a probably a very good reason.

What does that say when you find factual statements insulting?

Years ago, I put up a quad in a unrestricted neighborhood.   It had been up for almost a year, when a neighbor complained I was coming in on his TV and Radio.  I said how do you know it was me.  (I live in the South, but have a Yankee accent.)  He said he recognized my voice, and my accent.  I truthfully told him, this was amazing as I only worked Morse code, so how did his TV and radio pickup my voice.   That was the end of his complaints.

 Out of curiosity, I looked at your your QRZ home page:

"I am active on the HF bands, working CW, QRP CW, SSB,..."

Mic prominently displayed in the accompanying 2018 picture of your shack.

HuhHuhHuh

It's a red flag anytime someone prefaces their statement with the word "truthfully"

Surely you understand tense? He started by saying, "Years ago" and the QRZ photo is from 2018. Hopefully you can connect the dots because you're looking kinda trollish here...

In the mid 70's I help build a 5K day/1K night directional AM station. About a week after we went full power day, we got a call from a women, who said she could hear us in her kitchen. She invited us over to listen. When we got there she had coffee and cake ready for us. (Very nice older women.) We noticed that the sound was coming from an antique toaster. The nichrome wire in the toaster was vibrating, and we could hear the station. We bought her a new high end toaster, and she was very happy. For a couple of years she would bring homemade baked goods to the station every couple of weeks.

Sometimes it's things you would never think of.....But if her husband, or other people can't hear it, maybe it is her dental fillings.

 Being a ham has nothing to do with it.

The neighbors weren't here when I moved in 20 years ago , so I didn't need them then and I don't need them now.
If someone shows up at my door and tells me they're hearing voices though their walls , I dont like being lied to.  They're gonna get told to leave immediately and if they don't they'll be arrested for criminal trespass. They can argue their case from a jail cell.

Even if they want to complain they can't. It solves everything all the problems just melt away. Rule with an iron fist , Send 'em to the GULAG ! it worked for Joe Stalin it can work for you too !

its a simple easy to understand policy , and  I have NEVER had a complaint.
