'[PIC]: Electronic Warfare - Solution'

Build a directional EMP generator and kill all his electronic items in his
house (Apt or whatever). Each time he replaces the offending equipment hit
his abode with another EMP. Unless he is extremely rich, he will not have the
funds to replace this equipment more than once or twice.

The best news of all is that this directional EMP is virtually untraceable
since you have to be looking for it.

Yes, if you miss the bright light and the loud boom and the half dozen
echos from the boom then you can't for the life of you tell where it came
from. ;-)

Also good luck with the 'directional' part since the inverse square law
works for the neighbor and your own equipment is just about going to be
shot before his.

FYI my amplified computer speakers detect any cell phone within 2 meters
of range and emit a tick-tick sound while the phone is in use. It can only
be heard when I am not playing anything through the speakers though. A
good HiFi will not have this problem however a high speed hand drill run
without a load and with the filter caps removed might do the annoy-him
trick.

Our neighbors at work are in the diamod business and they use some very
high rpm polishing motors that make noise bars up into far UHF
(I once measured -10dBm..-20dBm at 600MHz and 3..5 meters through walls
with a small probe antenna).

hope this helps,

Peter

Of course, you will probably kill all of your own electronice devices
several time during testing; you may also disable everything in some
unintended victims' apartments as well, but hey - if you're going to make
an omelette you have to break a few eggs, right?

Of course, you could also find a new place, or build an active noise
cancelling system.  It won't be as cool as something really destructive,
though.  Sheesh.

Want a true stealth-geek solution?  If you can get line of sight to his
equipment through a window or somewhere, a nice little infrared output
could auto-tune his radio to your favorite station, crank the volume down,
or turn everyhhing off if the noise reached a certain decibel level.

My aren't we all very destructive today? ;o)
Here's a solution both amusing and illegal from
an ex-repairer of appliances;

Sneak into his house and put a hefty 1 ohm resistor
inside each speaker box in PARALLEL with the speaker
cone. His amp will be much queiter but still working
on low volume levels. However, each time he cranks
it up to get the neighbour-annoying sound levels he
will cook his amplifier and either have to get it
repaired or buy a new amp. It might be a good idea to
check if his amp has speaker fuses, and replace them
with automotive 20 amp ones.

The really sneaky thing is that he probably won't
work out that the problem is in the speakers, as they
appear to work normally, and he will just keep blowing
amps or probably train himself to listen to music
much quieter from now on... ;o)

And this IS a joke by the way. :o)

hehe. good idea. How about looking for a spot to put a small mirror to
bounce your beam off. Dorks usually are fooled by mirrors. I.e. if you
can't see what you're looking for then it ain't there. Coating the mirror
with something that lets through IR only would be a next step so he really
can't tell it's a mirror. Don't fall out of a window while trying this
please.

The hard thing about such systems is to get them to work right, or you
get some even more annoying results.

I know of a system that is botha HiFi system and has this function that
works best for all noises inside the room where it is (also speaker
positioning is critical), but doesn't really work if noise source is
outside...

Those that build the intercom for hellis really know how to deal with
such noise levels...

A simple invert and add may not work much.

There's another noise cancelation solution which might be better
suited:
headphones with noise cancelation. They work much better with external
sources of noise, but they must be worn ... to work...

Since we are on the PIC list, here's a PIC solution:

build a PIC that receives IR signals, decodes them and sends them over
a  RF link. Do this battery powered, very small, maybe with a SMD
12c508.
Place it near a window to listen.
Build another one with RF transceiver that sends the signals to your PC
via serial port to analyze. See what kind of codes there are, etc, etc.

Search the net for IR remote control blocker circuits. (epanorama.net)
Build another PIC controlled device with a RF receiver and an IR
transmitter. Build the concepts of the blocker above into the
transmitter.
Have your serially connected PIC send the appropriate signals to remote
control the equipment and send jamming for a while after sending a
command so the real remote won't get through.

This is the high-tech version of the geek solution :)

<SNIP>

I've watched this thread with some amusement.  Here's my hi-tech/lo-tech
solution:

1) Get a good recording of "Who let the dogs out?"

2) Place your speakers in facing your rude neighbor's walls.
  Place baffling material in your flat so that no sound
  can be heard coming from your door. You may have to build
  acoustic covers for your speakers. Isolate the speakers
  from the floor - we don't want to bother anyone.

3) Build a PIC-based system to do the following:

       a) Randomly play the aforementioned song a maximum
          volume for say 3-30 minutes.

       b) Stop playing immediately on one of the following interrupts:
            - Your phone rings
            - A proximity sensor detects anyone near your door or when
              the door is opened.

4) Enable the system and go on holidays for a week.

I am *not* recommending you actually do this, because it will drive your
neighbor crazy, but it is an amusing little fantasy ...

This is a true story. Many years ago I had a friend with just this problem.
A neighbour in a unit separated only by a wall would play his sound system
very very loud in the early hours of the morning (eg 2am - 3am).

At that stage amongst my junk I had an RF Plastic Welder. 27 MHz ISM band.
Possibly several kilowatts output.

We placed the welder under the stairs against the internal common wall.
Taped a 27 MHz 1/4 wave whip on the wall.
Loaded the welder into the whip as best we could.

Left filaments on and with a switch in HT so you could operate instantly.

3am. Loud music. Bleary eyed friend stumbles down stairs and presses button.
Loud humming buzzing and other noises from next apartment. After a small
while the sound system was turned off. The problem stopped very shortly
after this but I'm not sure how much the welder had to do with it.

Interestingly, the affect on a TV in my friends apartment was relatively
minimal - distinct diagonal bars but picture still viewable.

Russell,

I hope the statute of limitations has run out when the FCC finds out about
this!

Even the mighty FCC does not reach this far (although it may have some
control over the US spy stations operating here at Tangimoana and Waihopu)

Electronic warfare is all well and good but remember, if you interfere
with the chaps pacemaker, trip his mains breakers and stop his kidney
machine, or the ventilator that's keeping his 90 year old mother alive,
your be in deep poo... There was a case in the UK a few years back where one guy was playing
loud music late at night (he used to work shifts). So, the other
neighbour started to leave his hi-fi on full blast when he went to work
during the day so that the night shift guy couldn't get any sleep. The
night shift guy got so stressed that he had a heart attack and died. The
day shift guy was arrested for man slaughter.....

Hehe Is this the same UK that arrests and convicts and imprisons people
for collecting golf balls, There are some stupid laws about. I'm surprised
that the convicted man did not plead temporary insanity.

But you are correct the best way is never revenge, and two wrongs never
make a right, however one way that seems to work is to arrange a simple
petition with the neighbors and if the person is renting get them kicked
out.

just because we can does not mean we should, but often knowing we can
is enough.

I must admit that that's one aspect I had never considered!
Certainly seemed entirely harmless and entirely fair at the time but so do
many things that go terribly wrong. We recently had a man here charged with
manslaughter after he set another man's grass skirt on fire at an office
dressup party. To everyone's dismay the skirt caught rapidly and the man
died. Nobody wins in such cases.

As with all things, normally you only ever half a story - usually the bit the press want you to here.
If the man had asked permission (and received it) from the golf club, there would have been no problem.
The golf balls belong to the club, once lost by their original owner (finders keepers I suppose)
But sneaking into the golf course at night, without permission (trespass) and then 'finding' a whole bunch of golf balls (theft) in 3ft of muddy water so that he can resell them (avoidance of inland revenue tax's) is against the law of most countries I would think
He should be thankful that the judge (who I believe clearly overreacted) didn't order his immediate execution.
I suppose he should also be thankful that this didn't happen in the USA. I think he could have been shot for trespassing.

Actually, he had registered the sales and was paying tax!!
