One of my neighbors has just bought one of these -- uses a small receiver
on the dog's collar to sense radio signal from a shallowly-buried antenna.
Frequency unknown but probably V/UHF because there is no external antenna
on the (small) RX box.  I'm wondering if anyone has run into problems with
this RX being susceptible to HF signals at FCC-legal levels, and if so
whether there is a fix.  I'd hate to have his dog howling all through CQWW
when it's nowhere near the fence.
