What is needed there, and elsewhere, is for the friendly helpful legal staff at the ARRL to generate a release form and a letter of explanation for the neighbor to read and sign that releases the Ham from all liability. (And an alternative explanation as to where they might find
"professional services" together with typical costs, if they don't want
the "amateur" neighbor repairing their defective-manufacture equipment
for free.

The reason that they would sign it is because they otherwise have
to tolerate the interference from the Ham's gear, and because their
interference-generating gear is technically subject to seizure as generating signals that illegally interfere with Primary Users,
Ham and Broadcast.

IMHO, YMMV ... 73, doc kd4e

So if you live in CA and have a ham next door and rcv interference; you call the FCC and they tell you they don't handle interference complaints any longer; and the ham's hands are tied by law and can do nothing to help? Sounds like a powder keg waiting to blow to me.
