The question isn't where do YOU start.  The question is, where do THEY start
to solve the problem.  If you don't have an issue with RFI in your own
home...It isn't your problem.

For 80 and 160 M I have had various verticals over a large radial field,
there are
60 X 80' radials. A previous Butternut vertical was thought to be setting
off the
neighbor's oven timer, but testing was inconclusive. Then 2 weeks ago I
a fullsize 66 foot tall 1/4 wave 80M vertical. It must be much more
because it is REALLY setting off the neighbor's oven circuitry, the timer
continuously with a key down KW. Their house is 200' from the vertical, and
120' from the edge of the radial field. 
They have the usual built in oven/microwave, no wiring is easily accessible.
Where do I start ??
