Boy, that's some serious vintage Tektronix gear in John Irelands ride. WTF is it, a curve tracer? Also, a scope with a broken timebase isn't gonna help our hero track the bad guys. But a simple signal strength meter as what Ireland was wielding would indeed have located his bug, sans geiger counter noises.

For what it's worth, the real FCC uses three vans to triangulate on you...


Haha great!

The plot sounds very similar to Christian Slater's Pump Up the Volume: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100436/


Radio Free Steve, the 1999 unintentional remake?


In the CB days, people "running power" (illegal levels) were paranoid about those FCC vans. One could consider using a mobile studio, on wheels, and broadcasting randomly. However, some of the pirates would infringe upon AM stations, not a good idea.
