In the mid 70's when I was still living with my parents, I fired up my newly-built SB-220 amplifier and put it on the air for a while.  The next day our next door neighbor told me that I was causing his bathroom lights to glow on and off whenever I transmitted.

73, Don K2FY

Me too, Geoff  - I have no desire to get my WACCA (Worked All Cheap
Chinese Appliances) award. I thought it was bad 15 years ago, I can't
imagine how much worse things have gotten with all of the new
plug-n-play crap around.
