    New today... A local TV station spent big $$ recently to procure a drone for inspecting their antennas, 1,500' or so AGL. As the drone approached a tower, RF energy jammed the controls and it flew away never to be seen again, lost in a swamp or bayou.

    Any one with experience in this area ?
