*the* Jimmie Johnson uses a iPhone? That's a bit advanced for a NASCAR racer!
Who's bitchin about Stroud? Nice hippy place
I did wonder...
Why a few pilots were talking about radar problems in Bristol (sector). I guess they can't use hand signals at 25,000ft!
All the information from the emergency services I used to get before they went over to Airwave I can now get via the Internet.
Who was it El Reg turned to for its high altitude to ground data system when it sent up that brave little playmonaut? Oh yeah, some not very old and clean shaven hams.
Re: Babs in Swansea
I remember steering my brothers car down the beach there at about 60 in a 30 or something zone. Half way down the beach a police 4x4 passed us doing about 80.
I'm a bit slower than I was last time I checked. I'm currently just over 31mbps down and 10 up. Here in green Gloucestershire.
What's the advantage of useing GLONASS over the American GPS? Cost?
And here I am in a town in Gloucestershire with a connection at about 59mbps!
Don't like the navigation but I have found a bathtub on a roof of a house in only 5 minutes

Young and Crippen would be turning in their graves! But seeing as they are not dead, maybe they are face palming instead?
Its sad that the payload and playmonaut were lost at sea, But it was fun tracking the baloon and watching the car chase!
Remember? One of them was my first PC!
Still got it in the shed, complete with its DVD decoder card installed (remember them?)!
I can only add...
...that as long as these thing do not transmit where they shouldn't be transmitting then everything should be fine. All users of the radio spectrum have to ensure their equipment does not cause interference to other users. I dont see why these power line devices should be any different.
The radio spectrum is full of users who use radio for a reason. They all need to co-exist and for the most part they do.
And yes, I am a fully licensed ham!
Re: Can anyone explain?
When you are dealing with short sharp bits of information which need to be sent to one or more cars/trucks its a lot quicker and easier to 'push to talk' then go through the whole dialling process. Mind you, mobile operators are missing a trick by not enabling push to talk systems on mobile phones.
What people forget is that us hams can communicate semi reliably around the world antenna to antenna. No infrastructure in between is needed. And as another poster said, there are a great many other users of the radio spectrum who can have problems caused by noisy devices.
