Re: Re[2]: Any Risk ? --> Bad Apples

One of those bad apples showed up today on the FM birds--with intentional 
jamming on UO-14, followed by the same tones appearing on AO-27 a few minutes 
later.  It's very unfortunate that someone with enough savvy to work 
satellites has nothing more productive to do.  The good news is he/she 
apparently doesn't have any analog gear as I didn't hear him on any of the 
those birds today.
