[AMRadio] QRM fron Neighbor's Security System

Field enforcement activity by the FCC in my field (broadcasting) is 
very low.

In my fight against modern traffic light system interference I was able 
to get a field engineer to visit - and he confirmed the signals were 
far beyond Part 15  and were indeed causing interference - but he was 
unwilling to take any action.  He said you can't fight City Hall, and 
people should just tune to a stronger station if the noise bothers 
them.  Sigh.

Do any of you guys have any idea as to how many Field Engineers the
FCC employs?  NOT many! The last time I checked,  they had a grand
total of TWO for the southeast United States. Out of Atlanta.

Do you really think they are going to go out and get involved with
this when they have all of the enforcement for maritime, amateur,
CB, Broadcast radio and TV to worry about? Personally I doubt it .
Although they did once visit my station when a neighbour complained
of RFI. I was exonnerated!
