Since I could not operate from the home QTH because of the aforementioned grow
light RFI, I operated CW WPX from a campground in the Cascades. When I returned
from my one week road trip, I found no noise at all on any bands.
For me, the obvious assumption is that the crop had reached maturity and was
harvested. (I had hoped to be in town when that happened in order to possibly
observe the transportation in progress.)
As best as I can tell, the growing cycle with the lights was about 2 1/2 to 3
months. Hopefully, this grow was a one time thing. If not, I will invite
local law enforcement to become involved.
Thanks to all on this reflector who provided information and support. I don't
have any strong opinions pro or con regarding personal cultivation of pot, but
when it takes me off the air I will take it personally in the future.
