I remember when I was younger; I was hooking up a VCR in my room. I wanted to put it on my dresser but it was too far from where the cable came out of the wall. I had another coaxial cable that together with the one coming from the wall would make the distance, but I didn’t have a connector to join the two cables together. I then proceeded to go into the garage and dig up two 75 to 300 ohm adapters (you know the kind that converts 2 wires into coaxial) and used scotch tape to connect both of the 300 ohm ends together. Boom, I now had the makeshift adapter I needed to join the two coaxial cables together. Everything worked fine and it was happily ever after… wrong. A few days later a white utility van rolled up in front of my house and a guy jumped out holding a device. He said something like, “Yeah, it’s coming from here”. Turns out that the makeshift adapter I put together was screwing up aircraft communications between planes flying overhead and the local airport (We are right under the flight path of the local airport). I’m still not sure exactly what the technical issues behind it were, but still funny looking back. Just felt like telling a story.
