Hi Bob,
I recently retired after 30+ years in air traffic control.  My advice is
don't even think about it.  the possible consequences of any spurious
radiation could be very serious.  If this airplane is government property, I
would look into using government radios on government UHF aircraft
frequencies.  Most military owned aircraft are equipped with them even if
they normally use VHF for ATC.
