That is very good news. FCC was never too ready to issue a citation for incidental radiators.  That's what arrl and I did with Power company here a few years ago after extensive testing and results documentation but they fixed all but one source and got away with remaining one before FCC issued citation. Prior to that CEO letter from FCC went totally ignored and Laura issued an order to fix which they responded to except for the one. (reducing to a single source allows me to mitigate the problem with MFJ nuller quite well.  But this is a legal precedent now which really helps future cases I'd think.
