    If it works inside the box, which after all has a lot of big glass holes in
    it, it's easier than connecting a wire every time you get in and removing
    it when you get out.

    I've been thinking about getting an external antenna, but I think I'd only
    bother to use it on long trips.

    Ow good, another person that is isolated from the truth.
    Someone that the aliens can experiment on,
    and the government can use mind control on.

    If you want to save your self, search for "art bell" on google.
    And get you one of them black helicopter detectors.
    I personally like my anti mind control metal helmet.

    Earlier this month after a several foot snowfall, and if the forecast
    holds, Monday, after another snow.

    Next dumb question.

    Even non-ionizing radiation, at the frequency of the hydroxyl
    molecule, can cook meat. When it's done deliberately the device is
    called a microwave oven.

    And the skull focuses 450 MHz at the crown at just about the top of
    the brain stem.

    But 800 MHz and 1900 MHz are fairly innocuous. (Unless the power
    level is high enough. 600 watts on a finger can hurt.)

    That's what mobile kits are for - making it easier to attach and
    detach the power and antenna.

    Hah. I can answer this one... 'bout 4 hours ago, to drive through the 2
    foot snow bank blocking the entrance to my road (snow plows are clearing
    main streets first, left a snow bank in place until they come back to
    fix it)

    Well, maybe not... But I suspect that they don't drive for long.

    My snowblower does that, and for a lot less money that an SUV. It
    also cleans down to the pavement.

    Indeed. What good would that do though when it's -30 to -40 out, my
    house was still a few blocks away, and even if I had one, I couldn't
    ride the snowblower to pick up kitty litter at Walmart either?

    When it's -30 out, I'm in.

    I make sure I have everything I need before it starts snowing. That's
    one of the things that separates us from the caterpillars.

    Sounds like someone who'd appreciate this eBay auction:

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1467&item=2983745872

    Check his other auctions, too. Myself, I'd bid on the snow, but I already
    have enough. Just got another 2 or 3 inches today.

    Is there a mobile kit for the 4400?

    Honestly, I take the bus most of the time. I don't have an issue
    walking out to the bus and going from there.

    However, bringing cat litter home via the bus is not fun.

    We have everything essential for survival here, assuming utilities don't
    die (which is reasonable here, for the most part)

    I think that's still illegal in New York. The law doesn't say

    I'm pretty sure there is - check in a Verizon store.
