QRT for a while (please help!)

At the location of the Suburban Subharmonic Grabber, generation of electro-magnetic fields is ceased temporarily. This includes the local oscillator of the subharmonic direct conversion grabber receiver(!). BTW: WLAN is shut down too, for the time being.
I hope that I will be able to provide grabber-services again, sometime.
It seems that, nowadays, spectrum grabbing is a suspicious activity!!! Oh, and... it seems that even writing about ham-radio is dangerous!!!
In order to support my "case", please feel free to write some comments to this post.
With your help, people may understand that what we are doing is just a matter of fun and helps studying propagation phenomena.

The Modern World

One step is made into a more modern world of amateur radio... I nailed together N3ZI's DDS-2 kit. Really easy to build! Did some playing with it, but no calibration yet.
