Dangerous Microphones sold at Crazy Clark's


A dangerous microphone was being sold at retailer Crazy Clark's that could interfere with air navigation systems that operate on the same frequency as the microphone. The illegal devices, which have been pulled from the shelves, operated on the 108-132 MHz band, which is allocated exclusively for air-to-ground and air-to-air communications worldwide.

"Why a company would put air travelers in jeapordy this way is hard to believe" said an official from the agency that regulates the airwaves in Australia, and is similar to the FCC.
