This poll will be light-hearted.
Last week on the show "24," hero Jack Bauer
rescued someone in a crashed helicopter perched
on a rooftop by grabbing a nearby Yagi antenna (~800-900
MHz by the looks of it) and prying the door open
with one of the elements. It seems pretty unlikely
to me that a cheap antenna on a private house would
be strong enough for that kind of duty.
a clip of the scene, although it doesn't actually
show the Yagi being used.
How about it? Do you believe it is possible,
or a real stretch, even for Jack?
Other than a few news and science shows about twice
per week, I never watch television, but someone
convinced me to try watching "24." I swear it!
