    Handi-Talkie
    An amateur radio transceiver that will fit into ones hand. Usually
    seen at hamfests or communications events, as they are portable, and
    can go virtually anywhere. However, they tend to not be high powered,
    and the battery can run down quick, if the unit is used excessively... especially at high power.

    Harmful interference
    Interference which endangers the functioning of a radionavigation service
    or of other safety services or seriously degrades, obstructs or repeatedly interrupts a radiocommunication service operating in accordance with the
    Radio Regulations.
