We are getting ready to start putting out fliers at the grow light
shops...  Pointing them at the ARRL web site, and a few others...

We are taking a log term approach to this...  I want there to be only
clean grow lights around me, I can't track them all down, so the best
way is a group effort...

Our meeting with the power company went rather well, they of course
complained of low budgets, but with RFI corrections being compulsory I
am not too worried.  

So far we have not had to call them at all, and I am pretty sure we have
reduced the number of call they are getting...  We all met, the entire
radio shop of the local power company, and our RFI Group from the club.
We have a method of interchanging data, and they can send people to us
as we can send people to them...  Seems to be working so far...
