In Iraq those naughty “insurgents” like to strap explosives to detonators connected to family-style walkie-talkies. Send a signal to the radio and BOOM…
So, a guy built this cool little device that cycles through all of the standard walkie-talkie channels, and all of the privacy codes. It sends a one second signal per channel, per privacy code. The idea being that as a convey moves through dangerous territory, any such bombs are detonated before the convey gets near.
I’m very much against the war, but I’m certainly up for anything which protects the brave men and women who find themselves in the one big fuck-up that is “Bush’s Iraq”.
