Navy signals cripple garage doors

This is one of the weirder garage door stories around. Apparently radio signals sent out by submarines off the coast of Connecticut are rendering remote garage door openers inoperable. The signal is related to a mobile radio system the navy is using in conjunction civilian emergency services. The signal uses a very low frequency that is the same or close to the one used by the Navy. The story surfaced because local garage door repair companies began getting complaint calls over garage door openers not working. Garage door customers are up in arms because resetting the frequency will cost $300.
