Presumably they are at different frequencies...  The problem, as I
understood, was a possible overlap between frequency of our beacon
ontop of the enemy and the enemy's beacon ontop of us.

We should discuss this en groupe.  I fear there is some confusion
here.  :)

"far enough" can be pretty far, though...

I would've thought it could all be done in circuitry.  I'll try
looking around for some info sooner or later...

We can change their signal?  How?
