Interesting. Listening to a caller to the American Journal, with Harrison Smith, this morning, a caller whom was on MURS CH3, (151.940MHz FM.), during the 1/6/2021 D.C. Rally, heard someone key-up and shout, "Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling!!! We're in the Capital BLDG!". Then, all that meyham started. Hmmmm...
Recently, a co-worker quizzed me on, "What would happen if you were to apply reverse polarity to the Energizer Bunny?". Having no idea, I asked, "What would happen?". The answer is he'd keep coming and coming and coming...

FRS/GMRS would likely be quite interesting, but I'm also sure it would be overloaded. Probably a bunch of Baofengs in use for various frequencies as well.
