    wireless computer question

    I ride in a rural area that goes through several farms. Does an electric fence put off a strong enough electromagnetic field to throw off your speed on your computer from oh say 10-15 feet away? I mention this because each time I have to come to a complete stop, because of traffic, at a particular intersection with an electric fence my speed indicates I am still moving. Just curious.

    If it does then I would really stay clear of that fence.

    I was stopped way out in the country with my wireless computer and noticed it still indicated 50 mph. Then, a pace line of bikes went by me and suddenly I had 10 more miles.

    I switched to wired.
