I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

I'd be inclined to say "Huh?" too. Then I read it and realized the writer didn't have a clue what he was talking about and was lumping intentional and unintentional radiators together, either out of sheer ignorance or a desire to sensationalize the matter... something this FCC is not about to do.

The main Part 15 devices the AM broadcasters are most concerned about these days are electric cars, wireless chargers, and other such high power and potentially damaging interference sources.
