    That so called enforcement officer should have known that HIS receiving equipment falls under part 15 and must accept any interference including that which causes undesirable operation. This of course assumes you were running a legal station.

    the guy you were talking to was in on it also! LOL

    i have to say that is one of the most original "got busted by the FCC" stories i've heard.

    At least you gave him a great story to go to work with the next day!
