I was hoping someone would mention James Mickens' epic rant.
With a substantial engineering effort, it might be possible to present all decoded signals in a useful way. I shudder to imagine the UI/UX discussions around that. Do you play back everything you decoded simultaneously? Or do you play them back in sequence? What do you do if the last 'double' is still being played back when another transmission comes in?
Sorry, but I'll put my faith in aviators ability to communicate, and the great mixer in the sky that AM gives you.
Thank you. Ham here, and the obvious benefits of AM for mission critical communication are lost on a lot of people because "it's old, so it must suck."
Now... There's a point about the FAA being slow to change... the number of 3CX800's the FAA buys is embarrassing, but it keeps them in production for the rest of us.
The outfit that built our (indoor) RC blimp has outdoor models that can cope with 25mph winds. (Which, by extension means it can travel at 25mph in calm air)
A blimp would be a lot quieter, but presents a larger target for golf balls. (more likely to survive a collision, though)
And both of those articles are based on using Windows 8 on touchscreen *notebooks*, where your hands are already close to the screen. Desktops are another matter entirely.
Gorilla arm is real, we had an HP 150 for a while.
Yeah, I'd love to get my hands on a set of the source images, since the stitching quality in the samples they showed was *horrible* compared to what Hugin can do. They clearly aren't trying to do seam blending or photometric correction, and I think one of the images is just plain registered wrong.
But to make tens of thousands on the black market, you really need a weaponized exploit. Mozilla will be quite happy with a detailed bug report.
Seth, scroll up one post in the blog. 3.6.2 was released tonight.
