Which brings to mind a pet peeve of mine .. why do so many power 
supplies radiate so many spurs on 420-450 MHz?  The manufacturers 
seem to have taken a perverse delight in putting all their spurs in 
the 440 band, and a lot of them fall either in SSB country around 432 
or up in FM repeater land right about 442.15.  I tune around to other 
services' frequencies and they are almost completely clean, and I 
tune around in the amateur bands and they're full of leaky-computer 
trash.  Is this a conspiracy or something?  ;-)
