As a geek, I'd point out that this is probably a selection bias; as a rule, the lower the frequency, the better range(excluding propagation off the ionosphere) and penetration for a given transmitter power. Therefore, the freqs that the government (i.e. military comms or radar) use are likely to be the ones that go through tinfoil (and brick walls, hills &c).

Before this scares you, though, there's always a tradeoff; lower frequency means fewer waves to encode information on and therefore a lower data capacity per hertz per second, so they can't be doing anything as bandwidth-heavy as controlling your internal landscape.

Not without frying pigeons..


You mean the government are putting pigeons in my head?

I wondered where they'd all gone.
