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.



They do that till they decide your responsible for their children's low test scores , hair falling out , and they're husbands low semen count , you gonna check for that too ?
 They'll take their problems and make them YOURS, if you let them.

Fillings ? yes I suppose you could try to talk  her into having all her teeth pulled for no damn reason  Seems a bit sadistic though. But hey maybe it will teach them to leave you alone.

 I think its more likely  CIA "V2K" voice to skull transmissions.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY.
Remember the episode of Gilligan's Island when Gilligan had a tooth that was receiving radio stations and everyone on the island was fighting over "borrowing" him to listen his mouth.

My parents 1936 built house had a cast iron range for heating, hot water, baking (two ovens) and cooking on trivets over the coal fire. By the end of the 50's, it was only used for heating and hot water. So imagine the surprise one day when father (G8ON) was on 80 metre AM and we could hear his voice coming out of the chimney! Only did it about twice and we could never find where the 'rusty joint' was.....

In these cases, I highly recommend getting the ARRL involved.  They can coordinate a visit with a "Tech Specialist", or for more complicated situations, and engineer and attorney.  (free or low fee)

Who knows, this might be a rectification issue like the examples posted.

I had a situation with a neighbor quite a bit more interesting than this one.  ARRL arranged for an Attorney and Electrical Engineer to check the situation out.

Technical measurements and a station inspection were performed and my station was confirmed to be in legal spec (well below spec in spurs, harmonics and RF field density, etc).  Attorney sent letters out to the neighbor and police with the results.  It was awesome! 

I operate completely at my pleasure with no concern.  200+ confirmed countries. 

Dealing with people with mental issues or substance abuse issues is certainly a challenge.  It's best to cover all bases.

Randy: I think what I would do is invite another Ham over to your house to operate your station. Communicate by phone and then have your neighbor show you where the sound is coming from as your buddy is transmitting. If by some odd chance it is getting into something, then you will be able to hear it yourself. If not, then it should shut your neighbor up and that will be the end of your responsibility. If she hears sounds coming from the walls and you don't during that time, then you know what the real problem is Cheesy

Since this all started I have heard nothing from them. The other day I saw her out side and asked her if she is still hearing anything.
He reply "Still hear music from 8:30 to 11:30 at night"

Me: Did you turn off the circuit breaker to you bedroom were you her the sound"

Idea was to eliminate anything in the bedroom that may be a problem.

Her reply: "NO"


I asked her if she heard anything during the  blizzard we had.
Her reply "Yes same time and music"


My reply " Well that clears me of your problem. I took the antenna down for those two days" "I have pics if you need proof"
She had a look of a dear in head lights.

So I'm done with them.

All is well.

I didn't intend to make fun of him but rather show the irony in him doing so.
And not that it matters but I think you meant "you're perfect" rather than "your perfect".

And yes, none of us is perfect.
