Ya, there is nothing wrong with a good ol' FAE Device, but even rockets
and such are expensive.  You could probably give some high school
electronics student a few hundred bucks to build you a few GPS
killers.  Interference is really easy to generate, most EEs spend alot of
time learning how not to generate it.  If it was difficult to do you would
spend less time in class learning how to avoid it.

But, on the other hand there taint nuthin quite as purty as the poof from
a FAE.  Ya know, now that I think about it, I am glad that not a lot of
people know what a FAE is.  Let 'em stick with the good ol' fertilizer &
diesel bombs.  Its safer that way.
