MH370 airliner MYSTERY: The El Reg Pub/Dinner-party Guide

Pete4000uk

I don't know about this peticular area but once you are a few hundred miles over the atlantic or pacific the only data ATC has will be from data sent by the aircraft. Over busy areas of land it's a diffrent story of corse.

Radar gremlins GROUND FLIGHTS across southern Blighty

Pete4000uk

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.

Radio hams tell Ofcom: Put that Wi-Fi mob back in their place

Pete4000uk

Hang on...

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.

EU standardises hamtagonistic powerline network tech

Pete4000uk

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!

Ofcom begged to protect minicab, other small-biz's radio spectrum

Pete4000uk

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.

Radio hams unite to fight off new powerline comms standard

Pete4000uk

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.
