Improved homeland security!

FREDERICK, Md. - Some homeowners in Maryland may have to open their garage doors the old-fashioned way -- by hand. A new communications system at Fort Detrick will link military installations in the Washington area with the Pentagon and civilian emergency workers. But there's a downside to improved homeland security. The radio system is on the same frequency as garage door openers. During tests, the new communications system has jammed the automatic openers. Area resident Marty Kreps feels the military should do something about the problem. He tells The Washington Post the Army ought to buy them new garage door openers or pay for a converter.
