The big(er) deal with some systems is that they offer encrypted services. If you happen to have 
access to the crypto version, that’s going to help you. As long as you are using “public” (and thus
fully documented) modes … not a lot of difference. The same info that lets anybody design a 
receiver lets people design a spoofing system.
