FCC Agents Trace Radio Interference to Doorbells, Videogames, Blankets - WSJ.com whats your take on this story? to me they are taking some of this a little to far. if this is in the wrong spot feel free to move.
I have both Florida Power & Light and the Tampa FCC field office on speed dial. Both have been very responsive to my RFI issues. Being close to the ocean we get much RFI due to salt-air effecting power equipment, FPL has always bent over backwards to help.I would hafta agree here, with this one note, it really depends on just WHO is being interfered with. If it`s a commericial or public safty system (think PD/FD or business user/system here) then yeah, the FCC does take it real seriously. OTOH if it`s a system/user like Amateur, FRS, GMRS or even CB then no, they don`t usually take it seriously. I know it stinks to say that, and probably hurts to hear it, but sadly it`s the truth. Now that said i do know of cases where an amateur made a complaint and got results (meaning the interference was resolved and fixed), however this is kinda more the exception than the rule in that case.

Well, sort of…"Similar letters in 2012 went to several operators of videogame consoles. "This unresolved problem," the letters typically warn, "could result in a monetary forfeiture." "
sorry i dont sit with that.... FCC makes sure the manufacturers comply with their rules, but then can TAKE something that a non-knowing consumer buys... from them ?
please tell me im reading that wrong.....
Yes, I'm quoting myself. :lol:I can personally speak for the florescent light issue mentioned...they wreak havoc from DC to daylight, for hundreds of feet. So I would say no, they aren't taking this too far.
