Great!  Go for it. 
What we need here on the East coast is somone FLYING at 14,000 feet.

In colorado at that height, you will hear the "emissions" from a
population density of about 2 million.  about all you might hear is the
one guy in Col.Sprs that transmits every 3 seconds to ISS...

Flying over NJ, we would be listening to probably the emissions
from a population density of 36 million people.

Hummh... good idea!  Every HAM private pilot should take a 145.990
receiver with him whenever he is flying.  Then we can get lots of
free data...

In fact, what we need is a rig scanning from 145.8 to 145.999 and
recording data...  sort of a black box recorder....

P.S.  I looked up those numbers in the almanac.
