Be very careful of where you point it. A colleague of mine bought a fairly meaty one, and one day pointed it at a passing jet airliner (flying around 20,000 feet). The pilot had the source plotted and reported immediately. The police arrived at my colleagues door within 20 minutes. (this was a long time before terrorist attacks too)
