A little ot here, but this reminds me of my CB days long long ago when
we would drive down the street in our cars to see how many of the (then
quite new) remote control garage doors would go up and down when we
keyed the mike on our dynamotor enhanced radios.
I did get a giggle out of this one.

It responded to my 160m CW as if someone had a key hooked to it. These are battery powered but we would turn it off manually rather than me getting under the sink to try and find a solution.
