The security parking in our apartment building is quite safe. It is so secure, in fact, that it wouldn't let me leave the facility a few days ago. I sat idling in our car wondering what I had done to deserve House Arrest, which always affords too much time for personal reflection. This particular idle daydream led me to recall something I read a few months back about the Air Force's First Responder Radio System.
Apparently the radio frequency that most remotely operated garage door openers use is the same frequency the Air Force chose for their new radio system on 125 bases. It's also the same frequency that the Air Force will use to communicate with First Responders during a Homeland Security threat, which caused a "lockdown" of suburban garage doors all over Colorado Springs. Bad garage door....bad!
There's a strong possibility that Rich's next duty station will be attached to an Air Force base in Denver -- if that becomes a reality maybe I should park outside? Or maybe just bring a good book and enjoy the lockdown.
Life was so much simpler when we just had The Clapper.
