You might laugh (or not) but I used to work in RF shielded cages and I would get headaches because stray RF would leak in.  I thought about lining my hat with tin foil bit I'm not sure it would work.  

... But it definitely will stop The Government from using Alien Tech to stop illegally tapping my thoughts!  😝😒😱

Yup. The best thing we can do is to use that band so they can't claim it's unnecessary for us to have. I try to put my call out on repeaters at least once a day for that reason (easy to do mobile during my commute)

Related, I'm cynical by nature, and there is an fcc petition to expand tech privileges on HF. I'm actually for giving tech a bit more hf, however when I put on my tinfoil hat I wonder if it's a move to say that we don't need vhf because tech has hf and uhf+ now.

It is FCC. Your senators don’t make rules or negotiate spectrum with the international body. ARRL is our representative to FCC.

So, how will this affect Satellite / EME, APRS, etc.?  Not in any good way.
