Today on the news I heard that a big bunch of electronic garage door
openers weren't working in Churchville Maryland because the govt. at
the Aberdeen Proving Grounds was doing something with a satellite or
something. Tomorrow their going to do the same thing around Aberdeen.
People are paying techs to change the freqs, but some may have paid
for other repairs by mistake, one would assume.
Someone in charge admits he didn't get the word out well enough.
1) Don't they assign frequency ranges to things so that this sort of
thing doesn't happen?
2) How could the use of a frequency mess up the garage door openers?
Even if the govt. signal was stronger, why wouldn't the opener still
work? If the govt. signal was picked up by the opener, how come the
doors didn't open or shut. (Apparently they didn't since they would
surely have mentioned that.)
If you are inclined to email me
