    Not only cell phones, as you suggested, but how about aircraft in the
    vicinity? The spot mentioned was an airport. From their lofty perch they
    could visually determine it was wrong almost immediately. I surmise holy
    hell would have broken loose if incoming, even outgoing, aircraft were
    wrongly informed thy were at the airport.
    Perhaps with a very high-gain directional antenna directing it to sea it
    could be accomplished? Or not.
