Nothing says "pick a different house to rob buddy" like eight SAM's in the front yard. I'll take two.

I thought radar was harmless to humans? Anyone else know anything about this? From what I understand no radiation is emitted from radar....am I wrong...anyone? (not trying to start a flame...just wondering..thanks) medcop

Yes ionizing radiation IS emitted from a radar unit . If your lucky it'll fry the nerves in whatever appendage you put in front of the emitter (seen it happen once to a guy at Ft Gordon ) Mad Moe former PFC 93D20 US Signal Corp

You must be too young to remember when one of the first microwave ovens was called a "radar range". [;)] Aboard US Navy ships, there's a yellow line painted around each of the "R2D2" Phalanx weapons mounts. A warning sign says something to the effect of "If you're inside this line when the radar is active, you'll be cooked".

In case anyone's interested I believe we're looking at a Shorts Towed Rapier SHORADS (Short Range Air Defense System). Used mainly by the Brits although the USAF had a few for airfield defense in Europe for a while.
