TRACEx-x RE: [aprssig] God save us!

Well the even funnier thing is that the Navy has for years used infrared
lights on the superstructure of the ships. They even have morse keys (good
ole straight keys) to control the signaling of the lights. They also have
infrared lenses to put on the white flashing signal spotlights. They use
these when they are under no RF radiation rules and in ship formations. I
think the author should have said "when the Navy doesn't use radio"

Yeah, and it really doesn't sound like anything revolutionary.  I just
thought the "since the Navy doesn't use radio" quote was funny.  Fortunately
the rest of the services have got it figured out.
