How Well Do You Know Common WLAN RF Views?

OK, so maybe all of these aren’t exactly common. But none are particularly obscure or exotic, and all are part of my reality within a given week or month. See any that you haven’t seen before? Drop me a comment and I’ll share the origin of any that stump you. Thanks for playing our game!

How’d you do? I’ll admit, now that you’ve looked at them all, there’s one zinger in the mix that has nothing to do with WLAN. You can probably spot it, but curious how many can identify it.
