I suggest you schedule another date with your Judge friend and ask about this.
I think you will find that you are wrong. Ask him/her about:
Section 9, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.
"The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless
when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it. " I
don't see the clause that says we have to be at war or that the invasion come
from an enemy (i.e. Nation (like treason)), by the way.
And while you're there, ask about "aiding the goals" verses "aiding". And
list the countries which we are at war with. And get some case law to back up

Either way I classify him as a traitor.
It's a pity that you don't know what you're talking about...
The President is just about the only single individual in the United
States who CAN'T commit treason. He is the ONE individual who is
charged with executing the laws of the United States. You can't even
charge him with a crime, you can only 'impeach' him. Furthermore, he
could be conducting business with Osama himself, and it could be
considered 'executing the laws' of the United States. The best you
could hope for is that the Congress would not fund an action that he
takes, or that the Supreme Court would (retroactively, of course)
declare something that he does to be illegal. Even then, as long as he
doesn't do the same exact action again, he's not breaking the law,
because the 'checks and balances' system of the Constitution sets the
President OUTSIDE of the normal 'legal' system.

I think, their are a whole bunch of people who need to be rounded up for
sedition and conspiracy to undermine the Constitution of the United States
and Bush is not one of them. In fact, why don't we piss on Kennedy who got
us into the Vietnam War? Johnson who like to Americans about the war for 6
years and his gang of liars Kissinger and McNamara! Let's start cleaning

Let's put these bastards away first, okay!
Raping individuals is not an attack on the constitution its an attack on an
individual (and I do believe they should be roasted for doing so)
but bush did was an ORDER of magnitude larger (MANY orders of magnitude)
he made a NATIONAL LAW that is ALL EMCOMPASING that has literally turned the
constitution into a rag to be upheld on their whim.

can do it LEGALLY
That is DISTINCTLY different.

I will at the absolute Minimum NOT vote for him again. I will certaintly
speak with others about it to hopefully keep them from voting for him.

I even sent a letter to the whitehouse asking why he is destroying the
That's right. Short of a 2/3's vote of all of congress ONLY the president

the buck stops there.
You accepted your neighbor the business man having rights stripped, you were
happy to see farmer stripped of their rights of how to use their land, you
were happy to see rents drop even though this required stripping owners of
their rights, now it is your turn.
Parents denied their Constitutional Rights because of a perceived emergency,
millions of property owners denied their Constitutional Rights based on
"Emergency Declarations" in California, New York and, soon, Massachusetts
again. You whine because your rights have been subverted based on the
argument that there is an emergency requiring a suspension of rights. You
You are only bitching because you see it as an attack on your freedom and
Constitutional Rights. You and your kind had no problem with laws that
destroy two million plus parents mowed under by CPS yearly which comes to 20
million people in ten years! You have no problem with millions of property
owner have had their property stolen and their Constitutional Rights
trampled on by socialists declaring "Forever Emergencies". When people like

Hell! I have no sympathy for you or your kind. I don't give a damn. I will
resist any effort by people like you to stop anything. Join the crowd.
Now,it is your turn. See how you like it.
I picked this example out of context because it is indicitive of rights
slip on many different fronts.
The threshold of "permissible activity" has changed AND the level of
tolerance of what constitutes a "fauxpau" or a "crime" has changed, AND
the level of revenge in terms of punishment haschanged. Allto the more
restrictive, less forgiving, and more punative.
This "trifecta" of rights crash will show this historical period among
the worst in "modern times"for rights.

So go rot in hell all by yourself.
Irrelevant if the equipment in question (transmitter and receiver) are
A 2.4GHZ transmitter could easily have an IF in the VHF range, some of which
can make it through to the antenna--which could desense nearby receivers
operating in VHF.
De-sense is a hard problem to combat in receivers. Even when there's
adequate front-end filtering, significant work must be done to
shield (for example) AGC lines and the AGC detector from stray RF
fields, lest they sense the wrong thing, and turn down the gain on
the front end.
Non-linear circuit elements in the output path of a VHF transmitter can
easily generate *powerful* harmonics extending up into the GHZ.
If you don't believe me, put a coupla hundred milliwatts into
a step-recovery diode at 144MHZ, and look at the output on a
spectrum analyzer sometime. You'd be amazed.
FCC certifications (and the matching Industry Canada certs up here) are there
for a reason. Cheap RF equipment is often very poorly designed, with
spurious emissions that can seriously screw up other users either in the
same band, or other, unrelated bands.
The doctrine of "if it's only 100mW, it isn't regulated" is very
band-specific, both in the US, and in Canada. You really can get
fined, fairly heavily, even if you're only putting out 50mW.
Imagine interfering with emergency services transmissions, for example.
I once got a call from a (polite but firm) Industry Canada/Department of
Communications "sniffer". One of the amateur repeater transmitters I was
responsible for had suddenly developed a spur (spurious transmission
at something other than its nominal operating frequency) that was
knocking out a commercial radio communications network used by hundreds
of businesses in the Ottawa area. You can bet that I dropped what I was
doing at my day job, and headed up to the site to turn the damn thing
off. We weren't fined. But if it had happened repeatedly, DOC would
probably have instituted an "action"...
Exactly. If I find I am interfering I simply stop doing it.
I agree with frequent offenders IE that ignore issues and keep doing it.
Fine the hell out of them.
but the power level we are dealing with here is so pathetic that background
noise would cause more problems than my transmitter.
and then you have to consider the NATURE of our hobby makes interference
even LESS likely. we are in the middle of a large vacant field !! usually in
the outskirts of a tow or in rural areas.
the likely hood of problematic interference is so small that I argue that is
is for all intents and purposes ZERO.
NOW when you UP the power over a watt to transmit from large high flying HPR
OK now we are talking a very different beats and I agree. NOW your signal
can escape your sphere of influence with enough power to "maybe" cause a
in your example you did the right thing. you stopped the transmitter till
you could have it fixed. everyone is happy.
Your 100mW signal leaves your transmitter at a level that is about 55-60dB
above the sensitivity limits of a garden-variety modern VHF or UHF
receiver. For an isotropic radiation pattern, that signal drops in
power density with the cube of the distance from the transmitter, so things
do drop off fairly quickly.
Your typical receiver is sensitive down to 0.25uV or so, which for a 50ohm
input impedance corresponds to about 10e-13 to 10e-14 watts at the input.
Ain't no such thing as an isotropic radiator, however. It's a fiction intended
to make BOE calculations easier.
So, let's take your 100mW (0.1W) signal and see how it looks 1km away, in
terms of power. Assuming a perfect cube law, it's now being seen at
something like 10e-9 to 10e-11 watts. Oh dear.
Chris, I do recreational microwave design, and radio astronomy.
One of my receivers is sensitive down to about 100Jy, which corresponds
to about 10e-24 watts at the input. That's without using anything
terribly exotic or mysterious. No oscillator overthrusters,
anti-matter/matter converters, Klingon cloaking devices, alien warp
drive units, etc...
Laws are created by man and are theirfore prone to being flawed.
IF they made having books illegal tommorrow would I then be a bad person for
hiding mine ?
Criminal yes a bad person no.
