At 04:44z a 150 characrter EAM from "homeowner" heard on 4724u contained the sequence "Foxtrot, Uniform, Charlie, Kilo"  Either someone in encryption has a good sense of humor or some Al Quida base is royally F***ed this evening!

Actually Lax, that was all that was said. "Foxtrot, Uniform, Charlie, Kilo".  That was it.  Yes, it doesn't take much to send us dedicated utility monitors into paroxysms of orgasmic ecstacy!

That was all?!!   You are right, not too exciting.  :-[ 
It probably wasn't the Al Quida people.  They would have said something like... down with the "Uniform Sierra Alfa." :-\
