I'm not in Arizona but my garage door has been behaving this way. Opening on its own. Kind of dangerous when I don't always lock the door into the
My remote won't work properly. I don't live near any AFB's though. I'm gonna get it looked at.
Could it be those smart meters causing it? Ever since I got one of those several things act up.
My smart meter is L-band, basically much higher in frequency. But I don't know about all smart meters.
The radios in remote controls have very little filtering. They are cheap. If there is interference, it usually if not universally fails in the
direction of not working. This is because for a remote to work, it needs to be decoded, and the interference effects the ability to decode the signal.
I was exploring a junked truck near the NTTR. I always lock my doors even if in the middle of the desert because camo dudes are known to try your
locks. Upon returning to my car, there was so much interference that I could barely open the door electronically until I was right next to it.
Incidentally, every time I find a junker in the desert, it has a habit of disappearing if I mention the location. I turned one junker into a geocache,
and soon the vehicle was gone. The next junker I found, I kept the location off the internet, but did tell a few people in Rachel about it. Soon it
Back to the ELMR radios, the NTTR has three such systems. No activity on them that I ever detected. Because they go up near air force bases, the FAA
is often involved, so you can trace the location of the transmitters via the paperwork filed with the FAA for the associated towers. Basically the
federal/military frequencies are a secret to some degree. Dating back to the Reagan administration, the IRAC (frequency database) became restricted.
Just how restricted is often argued. I think it only has FOUO status, which means you can FOIA specific frequencies, but in practice, the requests are
rejected. [The document containing all frequencies will never be given to the public.] But the tower locations have no such protection, so you can
tell which bases have ELMR.
