A legitimate station is operated and tested to make sure it is not 
putting out spurious signals.  The spurious signals (spurs) often 
occur when an amplifier is pushed too hard, i.e. trying to be made to 
exceed it's rated power.  You would never find that happening at a 
legitimate station where reliability is important.
