Good story, Phil.

My neighbor and his son  (each have Technician Class Licenses) came over 
to my house to blame ME for their cable TV problems...  apparently they 
read on the AT&T web site that ham radio stations can cause noise and 
intermittent service problems.

I offered to help them locate the real problem (e.g., by sniffing the 
neighborhood for stray RF...)  but they insisted my station was to 
blame... referencing the AT&T FAQ web page....

UNTIL...  I explained my station had been completely off the air for at 
least 30 days as I was remodeling the shack to accommodate a new radio!

Whereupon, they politely turned and made for home, mumbling something 
about having to press AT&T a bit harder on this, instead.
