Hmm... If you're in an illegal state would there be any benefit/risk in
simply reporting your suspicions to the DEA along with documentation
linking grow op lighting to RFI and your current RFI environment?
Seems to me to be a low risk way of dealing with individual problems.
Also, if the DEA has a lot of success with this the word may get out
that grow ops shouldn't use certain lamps.
Maybe teach DEA how to DF these sites themselves? Could maybe provide
justification for asking for a search warrant.
And, getting a little further out, maybe they could subpoena the FCC for
info on all the horrendous RFI complaints which fit the grow op profile
which they could follow up on. Hope you didn't hurt yourself when you
fell off your chair laughing...
Best of luck with your efforts at containing this soon to be viral problem.

I'm not a lawyer either. I too am wondering how it would be viewed by the DEA
during their raids if they find a nearby ham's contact info on the grower's or
on multiple grower's contact lists, or if find on documents showing the ham has
been assisting with RFI issues. I know I would not take that chance no matter
where I lived.
For those who think the federal DEA isn't doing raids under the current admin
or in legal states, you might be surprised at the selective grower raids they
are currently doing. Sometimes has to do with other activities or items on
site like guns.

I stop short of suggesting ways to suppress RFI, but point them at the
ARRL's web site for RFI, which does have links to suppressors. I am not
enough of a lawyer to know what the line is for how much I can help a
grower quiet down an operation, it is after all still not legal
federally, so I don't suggest ways to make it stop, as much as I would
