    Most of the problems will be the people who cannot use a key to open a car door, plug in a ethernet cable, open a garage door etc.

    I wonder why they need these particular frequencies. I would think that they would just use standard military radio channels:confused: , in the event of a homeland security threat.

    They might still be using a different channel than what the garage door openers use, but if they emit a very high power then it might still saturate the receivers for the door openers. My remote for the car alarm does not work when we are very close to some radio and TV towers in the city.
