I live in one of those states, also (Colorado). In the last few years I have tracked down 5 growing operations that were polluting the spectrum. The sad part of this is that the electronic lamp ballasts could be made quiet. Most of the electronic ballasts come from China and have not undergone any part 18 testing even though they have FCC stickers. I spent about 2 hours with the FCC personnel in Denver discussing this. It did not seem high on their priority list and our local police are not interested. I don't know what the solution is but it is an ever increasing problem. Larry, W0QE, said that since we did measurements and he published them on his web site, The number of hits on that page has been increasing at an alarming rate.

Having pot growing be legal, for any reason, sure makes it difficult to
keep a clean spectrum.

I can only hope that when Oregon fully legalizes growth of pot, (and it
will, right now it is medical only), it disallows home growing like, (I
believe), Washington State did...  Oregon currently allows home growing
and sales if you are licensed.

If Oregon changes that to be only State Supplied, then that should tend
to reduce the number of non-legal grow operations, and hence the RFI.
