I doubt that they are hearing RFI from an electric mower across
multiple states and overseas, unless it is being coupled into a
really big antenna array.  ;-)

Seriously, re. the Homelite mower ...

Homelite might be required to fix the problem via a recall since the FCC
could claim that the one they evaluated was clean and Homelite has been
shipping defective models.

I would write to the ARRL, the FCC, and your Congressman - reminding
them that RFI interferes with emergency communications as well as
business/commercial, hobby, and personal communications.

I have taken the liberty of copying this to the RFI list.
