    My 'neighbours' play that crappy boom-boom music when I am trying to rest .
    Years ago , a friend told me that he solved the problem of an electric
    guitarist next door .
    His solution was a broadcasting device which passed loud clicks into the
    guitarist's signal path .
    He used the expression ' capacitor discharge ' .
    Could such a broadcasting machine work against my modern menace ?
    Or was the whole thing ' bar talk ' maybe .



    Thanks

    Maybe, but a signal powerful enough to do so would interfere with lots
    of other electrical devices in your area. This could result in you
    getting into a lot of trouble.

    I would suggest that you look up the relevant laws in your area, and, if
    applicable, make a complaint to your local authority. For example, in
    England it is an offence under the "Environmental Protection Act 1990"
    to cause a "statutory noise nuisance".

    Regular loud music from a neighbour would be considered a statutory
    noise nuisance.

    Try Googling for:

    <your city name> "noise nuisance"

    Visit the local health department in your area, and file a complaint. State
    that your health is being effected by the noise. They will be forced to do
    an investigation.

    I had such a problem some years ago, and the offenders were legally forced
    to stop with their loud noise. They were playing music so loud, that my
    walls were vibrating!

    How they are allowed to enforce the law for noise pollution, is depended on
    the laws in your area. In some areas, people are allowed to make very loud
    noise at certain times of the day.

    As for the method of blocking electronic noise, as per how your were
    describing it, this is just bar talk. If you make any type of interference
    that disrupts communications, then you may be the one ending up in trouble,
    and not the noise maker.

    Reminds of the noisy neighbor that lived upstairs in CA, she was a nurse and
    worked from 3-11, then went out and found a friend for the evening, she was
    L O U D, but interesting. Finally at a apartment party both her and I were
    talking and I started talking about the loud person upstairs, I knew it was
    her but pretended otherwise, she was busted quickly and the noise settled
    down.

    Call the police and have them arrested.
    In California it's called "creating a disturbance";
    other places it's called "disturbing the peace".
    When they have to take a day off from work to go to court
    then pay a fine, attitudes change.

    In my case the problem was a barking dog. Get several neighbors to also
    complain to the police. This way, the noise maker will realize your
    complaint is just one crabby neighbor.

    --Think twice if you're in California. I couldn't afford the
    "fees" the cops wanted to charge to maintain the peace, so I finally had
    to move. Glad I did in the long run; those bastards were bleeding me dry.

    If you mean a Restraining Order,
    yeah, if you go down to the courthouse on your own,
    you can get one of those issued; they cost some bucks.

    The way to do it is to get him arrested and in court
    and while the judge is issuing the fine,
    have the judge issue the order from the bench.
    The equivalent of *go and sin no more*.

    If the jerk does it again,
    now he's in defiance of a court order (contempt of court)
    and it's an automatic trip to the pokey
    (like violating probation)
    and he doesn't get out until he appears before THAT judge
    and apologizes and says he'll straighten up.
    If the judge is on vacation,
    the jerk sits in jail until the judge gets back.

    --No, I mean the bribes I had to pay the local thugs-with-badges
    to do the job the State pays them to do...
