I dont think it was any clever feature-just a case signal radiating thru the cabling and knocking the set back to lo somehow-anyway like I said it worked. As for frying the set by transmitting with no aerial -yes it is something we mention on radio courses as a possible result, but it is not a foregone conclusion that it will happen, years ago we held conversations with other angling boats in our group at short range, but on hi power (naughty), all day. It was only that evening that one of the crew noticed a dangling co-ax wire behind the radio ................... and of course we all blamed each other .
