 before,  I'm sure that it wasn't the board op's fault.

 to track down who it might be, but he has had no luck yet. >>

Maybe a receiver tuned to the 160 meter band at the station to get the call 
sign. If he is interfering with a station on 1280 something's wrong. Can his 
call be determined on 1280? He has to be pretty close by to cause harmonic 
interference with a 1KW station. Hard to hide a 160 meter antenna, have the 
PD cruise the neighborhood.

Get an address and look up the call on the ARRL's call directory. I dont 
think the FCCs Ham call directory is working yet.

last resort, get the FCC involved, they have become very agressive with 
interference complaints. Big money in fines.
