Official Observer - ARRL
Official Observer appointees have assisted thousands of Amateur Radio operators to maintain their transmitting equipment and comply with operating procedures and regulations. The object of the OO program is to notify amateurs of operating and technical irregularities before they come to the attention of the FCC and to recognize good operating practices.

The OO program serves as the first line of "eyes and ears" for the FCC. It is the backbone of the Amateur Auxiliary. OOs are certified in the Auxiliary by passing a mandatory written examination.

SBE Urges FCC to Improve Medium-Wave Noise Environment - Mar 2016
"The Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) has told the FCC that the regulatory agency needs to take another tack in its efforts to tackle AM revitalization. If the FCC takes the SBE’s advice, the result could be less noise in the MF and HF Amateur Radio bands. "
"As a start, the SBE suggested, the FCC might consider establishing limits on the amount of noise that Part 15 unintentional radiators, such as plasma televisions, can radiate directly. Only conducted emission limits now exist."
