I don't have access to any of my Fortean Times back-issues, but didn't a contributor claim he was in a Pub and overheard four blokes on the next table actually plan an urban legend ? It was about some-one claiming alien abduction when he was asleep, but no-one believed him. Then the mobile phone company (there is only one) released records showing that his phone connected with a transmitter mast at 02:03 and with a second mast at 02:08 and then a third and finally a fourth mast shortly after. Triangulation showed that his phone signal could only have been picked up by the four masts (line of sight) if it had been travelling 260 miles straight up. Don't think the UL caught on but I haven't check Wiki.
