Re: signal still there

"Years ago", I had a cat that loved to lay on top of the radio equipment, presumably for the heat the tubes gave off – I said it was years ago – many years ago.  Anyway, one day I was in the living room and hearing what could almost pass for a very sloppy CQ, over and over again.  I went to the radio room to find out that the cat had learned that when he taps the big red knob on my straight key, it makes a sound.  Fortunately, I was in the habit of putting the SB401 in standby when not sitting in front of it (I also had two toddlers at the time) so I was sure I was the only one hearing the "cat call".  Oh, what could have been…

Dang... how do you write THAT one up? 

 

Unidentified transmission?

Broadcasting music?

Indecent and Profane?

No control op?

 

I kinda like the music angle myself!
