Wonder what frequencies they'll use?

What amazes me is the sudden hype. I've watched them over SoCal and in
Nevada, over large metropolital areas, even heard controllers and traffic
control mention them since '96. In fact, my friend Peter and I were checked
out by ground security after we had been observed by a UAV that circled over
us, we watched it, then "ejected its payload" (older model). Not often,
only two to three times a year, but still, they've been there since day
one... NOW people are freaking out...

The FBI has admitted it sometimes uses aerial surveillance drones over US
soil, and suggested further political debate and legislation to govern
their domestic use may be necessary.
Speaking in a hearing mainly about telephone data collection, the bureau's
director, Robert Mueller, said it used drones to aid its investigations in
a "very, very minimal way, very seldom".
However, the potential for growing drone use either in the US, or involving
US citizens abroad, is an increasingly charged issue in Congress, and the
FBI acknowleged there may need to be legal restrictions placed on their use
to protect privacy.
