Did you text her back that you were asleep then?
Direct her to this site, this is the definitive site for aluminum deflector devices.
I told her to call me so I could come over and hear it for myself. Which she did not do. Emailed her this morning waiting for reply. She tried earlier this year blaming her neighbor on the end unit, looks like I'm her next target.
When I was in the USAF the guy in the room next to me played his AM radio real loud. I hooked up a buzzer to my dipole creating enormous amounts of interference. After three days of this I went in his room to "help" him, I told him his radio was playing too loud causing oscillation. I said he would be OK if he turned it down. After that the buzzer I wrapped in a blanket was no longer needed.
This is one reason I've kept a log of all operations, even after the requirement went away.
I think WA8FOZ has your answer.
Yeah, because no actual problem exists in the first place.
She just wants you to take the antenna down because she doesn't like it there.
Luckily my antennas are located on the NE corner of our block, and the nearest neighbor would either be across the street to the east or on the southeast corner of the block. Across the street to the north is a lot where a business stores equipment, so no complaints from up there. And the house which used to be behind us on the NW corner is now gone. So luckily I have no neighbors close by my antennas. And seeing as how I never run more than 100W and I don't get on the air all that often anyway, I don't get any complaints.
I liked Weird Al better with the mustache and glasses.
