Hmmm, what a great toy to use when the cops are chasing you <G>.  Id like to 
use it on tailgaters.

Finally a market for all those surplus 4CX250's.

PP 300 MHz oscillators anyone? 2500V unfiltered DC right off a 3 phase xfmr 
driven by the alternator

How much gain is there in a 4' yagi at that frequency?

Gee, a whole new market for pre computer vans as the device would probably 
wipe out any computerized vehicle carrying it.
