: > tuning up, the hotel fire alarm system went off
About fifteen years ago I got a kick out of driving through large cities
such as LA while operating HF and setting off a wave of alarms behind me.
One night I was at a coffee shop and some twit on a cell phone was leaning
on the back of my truck and antenna. I told my passenger, "Watch this",
with the intent of burning the clown off my truck. Keyed up, spun the dial
from MF to VHF, nothing. We got out, asked him to move and realized most
alarms within sight, building and automotive were going off. The coffee
shop alarm had triggered as well as the fire alarms and silent alarm system.
Gotta love a high density area with a plethora of garbage electronics.
