Hi folks,

My turn to share an ongoing interference problem. Actually, I have 2 noise
sources......The power line problem I mentioned earlier AND the neon light
problem I have had for a couple of years now.

The pizza place down the road, 1/4 mile away, has a large externally mounted
neon light array on their building. This blasted array is emitting so much
RF across the whole HF band, it is amazing. The pizza owner as the previous
one is ignorant and unwilling to cooperate to help resolve the issue. All
the noise problems I have are emitted right off the light array around the
edge of the building. I have consulted with some neon light experts and they
are basically telling me that the array is breaking into oscillation because
the installer used the wrong voltage transformers.

Suggestions on the approach I should use with this problem ?
