Re: [Rant] Where to Report Severe RFI eminating from Comcast Cab
Rick, as a retired Comcast engineer, I have a few thoughts. First settle down a little, next, go to a local office and speak with someone there. Ask to have an experienced technician come out to look at the problem. Be asertive but not rude. Forget using the phone as they are scripted answers which don't cover your issue.
As far as it being the Comcast's fault, I doubt it, as being a ham you know that it take some power to transmit a signal for two blocks on the broadcast band. There isn't any cable equipment in the house that has that kind of capability. That being said, in my own home the cable modem's clock oscillator emits a signal at 1.270 mHz that is on top of my favorite AM radio station. The interference is limited to inside the house as checked with the car radio. At some point I need to get some correct mix ferrite chokes and put them on the cable coax and power cord. I may buy my own modem and then I can open it up and play internaly if need be.
If this doesn't help, then go to the FCC.
