Actually, it would be nice to have a data base of these.  I know the Navy
has a radar that has a frequency in the band, but they do not use that
channel in peacetime.  I do hear a buzz occasionally in the Cheaspeak bay
area.  AND during freq clearance for our PCsat, an Airforce freq clerk
said that we had a conflict on 435 MHz because that is a military
radar band.

To which I replied.  "Yes....  Thanks."  Since we all know it is a shared
band.  But it would be nice to at least document the known emitters in our
shared band... So we can begin a table:

  AREA       USAGE
  ---------  ---------
  Annapolis  rare
  San Diego  sporadically
