I still like my semi-passive jammer idea: attach a large number of bicycle
reflectors to a football with little springs so the whole mess jiggles like
crazy in the breeze. Mount this gizmo on a 10 ft. mast to get better
protection in hill-cresting situations.  Believe it or not, this is _still_
not patented.
