Must Mean The Squadron's In The Pattern
So you're sitting at home, minding
your own business, when suddenly your garage door flies open. You
remember the remote is in the car and the car is in the garage --
unoccupied -- and you go outside to see what happened. There's no
one around. The street is deserted. The neighborhood is quiet,
except for a single aircraft high above.
Yup. Blame the plane.
Homeowners in the Niceville, Valparaiso and the Crestview (FL)
report their garage doors are flapping like paper fans on a hot day
in church. The reason? A new $5.5 million radio system by Motorola,
which is being tested at nearby Eglin AFB, is jamming their garage
And the onus to fix this little bug may be on the homeowners,
not the Air Force. An FCC official says the new radio system is
working within its assigned frequencies.
The problem threatens to spread when the Navy begins testing the
same radio system at its base in Pensacola later this year.
(Perhaps we're looking at this the wrong way. When the garage
door goes up, you know the Fleet is in...)
