"Ohhhh, tough guy, eh?" Curly from the Three Stooges
Perhaps a windshield wiper motor with some heavy
fiberglass lawn edger filaments tied to it? That
might make a similar noise strapped to the tower,
and the wiper motor should be about indestructible.
I wonder how he'd respond to a strobe light?
What about a high amplitude tone burst generator,
one whose frequency you could vary from the shack
until you discovered what frequency he'd find most
Don't know about potential RFI generated by any
