I have a really great neighbor but recently he has replaced his old TV with a 
Samsung LCD that is mounted on the wall which is approximately 60 feet from my 
vertical R-7000. He also is using cable TV, Comcast. While running SS CW on 40 
meters and using my FL 7000 and FT 1KD  I apparently woke up his flat screen in 
the middle of the night to the point he was unable to control it with the 
remote. He thought aliens had invaded the remote but looked out his window and 
saw my light on, and realized I was on the air. When ran a test with and 
without the amp and I was OK on 10, 15 and 20 meters. But on 40 meters it was 
ok with just the FT 1K but when I used the FL 7000 and 600 watts, the TV went 
crazy. My TV has no problems. Any idea as to how I should precede to find the 
villain ?
