Public Safety Advocate: Changes Coming – 05.16.2017

To My Readers Please note that there will be no Public Safety Advocate this week (5/18/2017). I will be traveling to the Dayton HamVention amateur […] more

Public Safety Advocate: Translating for LMR and LTE Worlds – 05.16.2017

Does anyone remember Teledesic? Founded in the 1990s by Bill Gates, Craig McCaw, Paul Allen, and Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, Teledesic was to launch 840 low-earth orbiting satellites (LEOs) and provide data at the then blazing speed of 720 Kbps down and 100 Kbps up from the ground. more
