>> ... You are covered by FCC rules already. Tell him to call a TV repair service.

That is the absolute WORST advice a ham can EVER give to a neighbor - if that ham desires harmony in the neighborhood.

Sure, this guy's mobile rig is probably within specs for a ham radio transceiver. And, yes, the neighbor's feedline or spliiter is
indeed faulty.

But to tell the offended neighbor, "I have the FCC on MY side, buddy!" is tantamount to declaring war.

But that IS easier - and less time consuming - for a ham to do: Just stick one's nose in the air and cite FCC regs. 

But a TRUE amateur radio operator will embrace this opportunity to educate and enlighten.
