Every ham at one point or another (and some always) has had to contend with interference caused by their own equipment or by someone or something in the environment.  Questions about this subject are often raised during the Tech Net Sunday evenings or at club meetings.  Bob Brehm AK6R, Chief Engineer of Palomar Engineers has spent a career helping hams address this and related problems.
