interfering with AM/FM/TV broadcast???  contact the station engineer and let them know, they hate that type of stuff!  interfering with police or fire frequencies?  contact dispatchers for those services and tell them, they'll usually get something done.  interfering with aircraft frequencies, contact control tower of nearest airport, those get FAST response!

want to know where to contact the fcc: http://www.arrl.org/fcc-power-utility-letter
be sure to read this page, including enforcement action examples the fcc has taken: http://www.arrl.org/radio-frequency-interference-rfi
and then before you say they never do anything check out: http://www.arrl.org/news/fcc-announces-enforcement-actions-for-january-march-2013
keep reading... its about 2/3's of the way down where they start on letters sent about plasma TV's, grow lights, and unknown devices.

Shucks, that's another point, you got to be a Philadelphia lawyer to find and understand all that government gobbly gook. 

I'm not even sure where or if there is a field office in my city or near by. I imagine it's like calling the IRS. 

Maybe what we need is a repository of complaints, then say once a month the caretaker of the repository sends a letter to his/her contact at the FCC with a request that written corrective action report be sent back within 30 days.
