     My neighbor at the end of my block installed one of these things a couple of years ago.  While the tech was on-site cutting a slit in the neighbor's driveway for the wire, I asked him what frequency it worked on.  He said it was a couple of milliwatts on 16 kHz or so.  I waited until the tech was gone and the neighbor's dog sat peacefully in the front yard befoe I tuned my receiver to listen for hash, etc. on the Ham bands.  Nada.  I even walked past the house listening to a portable AM radio - same nada.

     So unless the transmitter is defective, you should be ok regarding potential QRN.

A couple of watts on 500kc, at 3am, might be fun.
