Chris,
Before you call anybody take the time to find out as much as you can about the operator.  Listen to him and determine his location if not mobile/.....  Sooner or later his general location will be divulged because people just like to brag......... if  you have a CB then listen in directly on his frequency.... do not engage him.
That he is using an amp on CB is only a problem to the FCC if there is interference to another licensed service so if you find issues on 17m document (dates/times/frequency)........note the plural in dates and times.
After you have the information contact Riley Hollingsworth at k4zgh at arrl.org but read this first: Volunteer Monitor Program (arrl.org) for some background on reporting.
Good luck with the issue,

Hey Guys,

  

I live in the south side of Lakeland (near mulberry), and have been picking up a CBer locally somewhere running a huge amp on the CB frequencies.  It obviously has no filtering as the splatter is insane, and the harmonics of it sometimes bleeds into the 17m band.  I posted a sample video here on YouTube for viewing pleasure:

Is there anything that can be done about this?  I don’t have direction finding capabilities in the 11m space so not sure exactly where he’s located.  Let me know your thoughts.  Thanks for the help!
