Try living next door to an electronics engineer that designed ship antennas for 
the Navy and who insisted for over 30 years my various radios were putting out 
spurs from AM to UHF. He would not let me help him and would call or come over 
every time I got in a contest to say I was wiping out every channel on this TV, 
2 thru UHF. It got to the point where I told him let me fix it or call the FCC.
About 5 years ago he moved. I was out talking to him and he asked me if I could 
use this gadget and proceeded to hand me a Radio Shack TV-FM-UHF antenna amp he 
had installed in his attic to help ELIMINATE INTERFERENCE by making the TV 
signals stronger than my ham signals. It had been pretty much been there since 
he moved it. He had the math to prove it.

My SPURS also went to AUDIO and got into telephones, stereos and other devices. 
I asked how that was possible and received a complete explanation !!!
Thank God for Del Webb Arizona, Cable and Satellite.

Rick, N6PE
I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted pay checks.
