    Dennis, I respectfully disagree - in a lot of cases, taking a 
pro-active tack can mean the difference between 'happy hamming' and 
bad feelings, lawsuits and neighborhood retaliation.

   If GuitarMan has all that gear, maybe he'd like to have someone nearby 
with some electronic chops would be able to help him with a little 
soldering, or tube test / replacement.  Then, the Ham can offer to install 
capacitors or toroids - if TVI does occur. At any rate, one gets to be on 
friendly terms with one's nearby folk.

   Works both ways in this case, too - GuitarMan might be more inclined to 
watch his "rehearsal levels" if he thinks he's going to bother 'my 
electronic buddy next door' - but consider the case where it turns out 
like you've described - the transmitter gets into all those stompboxes, 
complaints are made, Ham tells GuitarMan to go pound sand, "it's your 
equipment design, go complain to Boss and Roland and Yamaha..."  well, you 
can extrapolate the rest.

   Kind of speaks to "The Amateur is a Gentleman..."

   Just my 200 millidollar....
