04:13 pm - "All we hear is Radio Ga Ga..."
Taxi and lorry drivers in Japan are being affected by unusual disruption from US military bases - baby babble that jams their radios.

Officials in Tokyo said that US-bought baby monitors used by parents on bases were emitting signals that interfered with other nearby transmissions.

ISTR they once had a similar signal interference problem with American-made garage door openers on one of the U.S. air bases there (either the one in Tokyo or on Okinawa). I forget what they were causing - uncommanded activation of some other system in the area, one expects - but I recall a certain degree of havoc and confusion. (As opposed to what happens in this country, which is that military EM interference screws up civilians' door openers in the neighborhood.)
