Advisory Committee.. the old man has to buy off on it.
That's like trying to convince your dad that the Camaro is a good option .. when your 16. :)

You know that an Advisory Committee at the FDA recommended toxicity warning lables on Acetaminophen (Tylenol) in 1977...took the FDA 32 years to implement:
Quote
In 1977, an expert panel convened by the FDA issued urgently worded advice, saying it was “obligatory” to put a warning on the drug’s label that it could cause “severe liver damage.” After much debate, the FDA added the warning 32 years later.

So...see ya in 3 decades or so when I can use my Kindle during takeoff.

And by then they will have been declared a terrorist device because some terrorist, somewhere, used a Kindle as part of a bomb.
So you won't be allowed to have it on the plane anyway! >:D

Anyone consistently "forget" to power-off their cell phone in CAP or GA flying?

Even when it's off. It's not off. The whole thing is ludicrous. 

Ever use a tone sniffer around an iPad, phone, etc?

They're all leaking like the Titanic.

For those of us not named Jason Bourne, what did you say?  A tone sniffer sounds like something you'd find in the back of a Mad Magazine along with the x-ray glasses.

As someone who uses one of those just everyday, there's a reason there's a 60 Hz filter on the probe, floresant lights...
They also find motors and just about anything else that uses electrical power.

Don't tell me, but i'll bet that thing is either more than $20,000 or illegal for the majority of us, right?

Yeah, but a 60HZ filter wouldn't matter much on a jet where the power is 400HZ.

No...a good quality Fox and Hound/Test Tone Set will run you around $150 or so.  Depending on the bells and whistles.

It's primary purpose is to trace comm lines from the instrument to the punch down blocks and/or spice panel.

I've seen them in Home Depot, Orchard Supply Hardware and Lowes. Overpriced, but they're there.
