MrBruce I get bent way out of shape over the common practice of hiding the identity of a complainant who brings investigators to the door.
One definite fault in the Bill of Rights is that only criminal defendants are allowed to face their accuser, whereas those pests who complain about long grass or radio antennas are privileged to remain anonymous.
As far as the unknown complaining radio station is concerned, you have one fact: there was a complaining radio station.
Using the process of deduction maybe you can narrow it down and find out who it was.
It is likely a station on or adjacent to your frequency (at the time) and you could start collecting names and phone numbers of key people at those stations. Next, you could call the chief engineers and converse about whether they have ever complained about anyone. Then the general managers. Someone might say something that will give you a clue.
If you actually find the station who complained, they might tell you who tipped them off, and that might point to hobby stalkers, amen.
