And if you hook the thing up to a CB antenna you could cure everyone in town!
This is actually quite disturbing. The Spirigenesis Institute of Tampa Florida has embraced this device as an alternative treatment for, well, pretty much everything according to their website:
"Our system, the PERL M+, is a whole body treatment, charging the cells in the entire body simultaneously, and bringing long-term healing at the cellular level with consecutive treatments."
Even still, this banner appears prominently at the top of their site:
"WE ARE NOT LICENSED MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS! WE DO NOT RENDER MEDICAL ADVICE IN ANY FORM, NOR DO WE OFFER CURES FOR ANY DISEASES.
ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR FOR ANY CONDITION."
I suspect FCC would be interested in hearing about what you have learned about that device, and that it is being operated in the US.
They have been rather... aggressive... in their pursuit of technical noncompliance with CB rules.
Here's what I heard.
At first it is interference to an amateur band, then by magic , once located it isn't. Humm.
I think you found one of these beacons.
Okay it's close to our 6m band...
I would knock on the door and sneak a note paper with the FCC phone number on it
and tell them that the unit should be checked for a defective filter noting how far
you detected the transmission. I am sure the consumer will be able resolve the defect with
manufacturer and FCC assist. I would let the FCC know , and leave it at that.
Let the FCC handle turning the contraption off till repaired.
Agent double naught 7, OUT A HERE.
Quackery or not, 27.125 MHz is in the middle of an ISM band. There's nothing wrong with this from a spectrum management perspective.
The second harmonic is radiating and being heard more than 10,000 feet away.
Unwanted emissions are another beast, admittedly, but there's nothing wrong with the fundamental frequency selection.
