Yeah, I remember that. They are a weird bunch, as a rule. I don't see 
anything unsafe about it. These guys don't mind sitting next to big 
transmitters, but they get freqed-out (pun intended) by a little spread 
spectrum. Must be why I still don't have an amateur license...

But, it occured to me that this might be one way to get them interested. 
They always like to go after anybody they even _think_ is operating 
illegally, because I think it's pretty much the only exciting thing that 
hams do anymore. Just an idea that might subvert them into the wireless 
fold in some way, if all else fails.

That's pretty much how the Motor City Radio Club pinpoints sources when they play "the Fox and the Hounds" during their annual field day.
