Great advice here, will consider it carefully. I realize now my biggest problem isn't lack of knowledge, its is being able to understand the information being imparted here.

So what I'll do is get my HAM licenses and spend some time learning more about radio and electronics before getting a little crazy with it all.

Now look, just coz you getting up there in years is no reason to do anything rash. Don't go buy a harley, gold chain, or a track suit. No crazy stuff now, you hear?

But if you decide do something rash, be sure to take a picture and send it out via SSTV.

I don't think I need any more pictures of me doing something absurd after a few sips of the pickle juice floating around out there.

Thanks for your thought provoking response, I will be sure to keep your suggestions in mind in the future. Quite the conundrum just as to what the Siren jammer was trying to jam.

It's a lot of trouble to go through if you are simply trying to minimize the risk of being caught. A more practical compromise is to pedal off to a park, toss a wire over a tree branch, and enjoy a picnic while your show plays. Then pack it back up and pedal home.

Any suggestions for a transmitter?

The other option is to get a baby carrier trailer like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Double-Swivel-Red-3in1-Bicycle-Bike-Trailer-Baby-Stroller-Jogger-Carrier-30RB-/231035135912?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35cac467a8

Keep everything buttoned up inside until a suitable vantage point is attained, rig antenna, hit the transmit button, quietly mosey away to a discrete distance and watch. Reverse the process when finished and quietly ride away.

Upside, I hate driving, could use the brat carrier for hauling groceries when not in use for other purposes. Will look up vertical dipole in a bit.

It shall be tried, one of these days, just need to figure out what sort of antenna to use.

And build a radio.

and test it.

and sort out the bike.

And record 40 minutes of porn noise to play at full power the next University of Oregon home game is broadcasted. Ok, kidding about that, but serious, U of O ducks are terrible. :(

Back in 2004, in Alabama, the place I worked issued us those GRMS (i think..) band handhelds. There were a few fast food places that used similar models and the fun I had with them. One of them, a hardees, got so familiar with my voice that the one time I actually got desperate enough to eat there I got a bunch of odd looks from the girl in drive thru window.

A friend who lives in a very bicycle friendly city on the West Coast raised the idea of mounting a transmitter in a saddle bag and then go for a nice long bicycle ride.

The question that remains, what sort of antenna would be best? We've bandied around the idea of a 1 watt transmitter as well if that bit of information helps.

I heard this rather unusual sound on my tecsun PL-660 here in the Hubei province of China. I asked on /r/shortwave on reddit and a poster seems to think it is jamming of some sort.

Any idea what it is?
