This is good advice, but identification is not needed.  Since I have the
radios, I am known as the neighborhood technogeek.  My neighbors generally
invite me over to show me the new devices and/or have me help install them.

If some one has come up with a tactful way of asking your neighbor to
disconnect his new LAN, or take his new phone out of service I would like to
hear it.  My hope is that someday they will consult me before buying stuff
(not real likely either).

After house sitting and taking care of their dogs for a week I asked one
neighbor if they would take the phone back.  They did but, "The guy at Best
Buy said it was the Ham Radio stuff not working right."  My wife likes their
new phone and wants to get on just like it.

All Advice is appreciated.

Thanks and 73,
