Disclaimer: I know nothing about any government secrets. Let me make my self clear. I am not privy to any secrets!
Next; I do study physics, so I do understand most known laws of physics. I also understand the physics behind digital. What a powerful tool when used for real defense situations.
I wonder? Does anyone remember the B&W movie from the circa 1950's, called "Forbidden Planet"? If so? Remember the force field set up around the rescue ship that landed years after a rescue SOS call for help from this planet. When this 'monster from the ID' came through the force field, it lite up like a electrically charged ghost image. Let us say the government is using the same technology as used to bring down the fighter jet over Bosnia by Russian anti aircraft batteries. It is a grid around the area of strategic importance, where this grid can detect every movement within that area, with an additional ability. Based on the depth of time, by using the Tetrahedron prism, every image can be decoded like a huge camera of the surrounding grid. Photographic high resolution image! But in 3D! Surely it would take a very high resolution timebase, likely atomic in nature, to pull this digital resonance imaging with Tetrahedron prism decoding into a single phase digital time frame of the area of strategic importance!
I have an old time antique tv. yep it still works. but for what reason or end of life use? Everyone on this planet is gifted with life. If the government wants to use technology I am aware of as useful for detecting rain drops a falling on my head... Then so be it. I am living on without the use of my garage door opener!
*WE* don't have to give up our automatic garage door openers... We just have to modify them so they aren't working on problematic radio frequencies!
Incidentally, for anyone who cares, my Craftsman opener has an "extended range" antenna option, which I bought through a Sears parts store. It's just some feedline and an antenna that you mount outside the building somewhere. I have aluminum siding. Before I installed the new antenna, I had to stand directly in front of the door and hold the remote up in the air. After installing the new antenna, I can open (or close) the door from about a block and a half away. If you have this issue, perhaps this option is available to you. If not, it would be easy enough to build something like it.

"Some radio-controlled garage door openers operate legally at very low power on the same frequencies but are not licensed to do so."
Sort of sums it up for me. It isn't Homeland Security or any other governmental agency now is it? It's the .......... go ahead ........ say it .....
GARAGE DOOR OPENER GUYS who are fault! I DO feel for the people - but come on folks ........ be reasonable. If the garage door guys snatched up a part of "OUR FREQUENCIES" we would pee-pee bilge water! The gub'ment should be able to do the same AND have OUR support! So I imagine anyways.Ya think?

I was in 6th grade when Forbidden Planet first showed. Leslie ("Don't call me Shirley") Nielsen as the captain and introducing Robby the Robot. One of my favorite movies, BUT it wasn't black and white.

Shouldn't that be "Thanks Overhead Door et al, you really give a rip about your customers"? And $300 for a new control? Let no customer go ungouged!
Not against the Gov't, true. But the door manufacturers are another matter. They chose to set up their system on frequencies where they are secondary users. I think their customers should have redress. Not some $30 off coupon on an new opener installation, either. They should have to roll a service truck to every affected customer's location and change out the transmitters and receivers at their expense. That's what's fair. You can't expect the average consumer to know or care about radio spectrum rules. They paid for a product that works, and should get what they paid for. I don't believe in time limits for design deficiencies.

I donít even have a garage. Just a gravel area in my yard next to my house where I park the car.
