    That must have been a conversation starter!

    I didn't know about the barbed wired fence "receiver" that Rick mentioned, but I certainly heard his broadcasts.

    All very interesting.

    Back when I was a teen and lived in southern Arizona, there was a ham radio operator that was operating at frequencies that he probably shouldn't have been. We'd hear him on any of our electronics in the house or car -- anything with a speaker. His handle was "the old Carpetbagger".
