  • It seems pretty clear the FCC won't make any decision before it gets done hearing from the Technical Advisory Committee reports and then some time - just out of professional courtesy I think. Those recommendations wrap up this year's work by those groups - so the FCC is rather obligated to hear them out Dec 9th.

    Regarding Pcstel - his personality seems to match that of the CEO of PCtel corporation - Martin (Marty) H. Singer, Ph.D. - he has an interesting resume, with some inventions etc. But the most interesting thing about 'Smarty Marty Ph.D.' as I understand some of his associates call him, is that the guy is a doctor of Psychology, not a technology engineer. If you have ever known a person who majored in college in that area of study, then you may have met and known someone who was drawn to the field for their own personal needs, not just for an interest in science. There are some YouTube Videos where he is interviewed, and he states that his expertise is actually in psychology, the rest he just picks up because he's 'Smart.', he says.

    PCstel = PC 'Smarty' tel ? A clever bit of spelling, manipulation, and like hiding the salami right out in public view? Of course, expect that to be assailed one way or another. Our guy here and that guy there seem to have the same style and MO.

    Read up on that guy and ask yourself if you get some insight? Are we being Ragged On by an unbalanced CEO of a company that has plenty of competitive conflicts and some serious market problems in its past? If so, something there may be seriously out of whack, IMO.

    High probability that members of the Technical Advisory Committee are also touring the site during this time - and they are scheduled to submit reports in about two weeks from now in a public meeting.
    The location and ongoing nature of the TLPS use in Washington D.C. is a great value.

    The TAC doesn't file ExParte, so far as I know, they just get their tasks done. This is going to be just like when people switched away from modems and went to wireless. Some companies stuck on antennas and delivery systems, tracking systems, and congestion solutions are going to relive their experience with modems that became outdated dealing with a catastrophic drop in prices for their products. "Marty, we don't want to hear any more about modems or antennas."

  • The "Outside" portion of the TLPS testing, IMO.
    If you check the experimental license 'Radius of Operation' you find that it was granted for a 2 KM distance.

    Fact - the license for the antenna was granted to be setup at 1604 Morris Road SE, Washington D.C. for both base station and mobile.

    Fact - Washington School For Girls - THEARC Campus is situated 1.6 KM from the antenna location.

    You can Google Earth both those locations and do the measurements yourself. Experimental License in effect until January 1, 2016 - continues to gather data as TLPS is used. Who knows, you might see John Dooley walking around with his spectrum analyzer anywhere between those two geographic points- wonder if there are any webcams in that area!

    May 22 14

    Globalstar, Inc. announced VehSmart awarded the first regional pilot project of its kind for Ecuador, which will outfit the Ecuadorian artisanal fishing fleet with life-saving satellite tracking and emergency notification devices. With Globalstar's SmartOne hardware, and VehSmart's world class reporting and expertise in deployment, both companies are looking forward to additional orders for artisanal fishing fleets around the world. The project will initially outfit 4,000 small fishing boats with Globalstar's leading satellite transmitter, the SmartOne. SmartOne devices will provide Ecuadorian fishermen and women with a means for help at sea when facing a life-threatening emergency including piracy. By linking to Ecuador's National Emergency Response System, the SmartOne devices will be outfitted with a proprietary panic button that any sailor can activate discreetly to summon a rescue. The combined risks of an unpredictable marine environment and piracy attacks make fishing one of the world's riskiest occupations, with a high annual cost both in lives and lost or stolen property. During 2012, 184 acts of piracy occurred against Ecuadorian fishermen, according to the Ecuadorian government. During 2013 alone, the Ecuadorian government replaced 370 stolen boat motors. Pirates steal the boat motors and leave the fishermen stranded out at sea. These stranded fishermen often die, leaving families bereaved and without economic resources. Between January and April of 2013, seven Ecuadorian fishermen disappeared at sea. The Globalstar SmartOne provides a means for fishermen to not only send an SOS, but also allows authorities to pinpoint the location of the distressed vessel and send lifesaving rescue personnel.

    This from an article by Louisiana Record reporter Vimbai Chikomo.
    "A satellite company in Louisiana is suing a telecommunications service provider over alleged default on a loan.

    Globalstar Inc. filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District on Nov. 10 against VehSmart Inc., alleging VehSmart failed to uphold repayment agreements between the two companies.

    The complaint states that in 2013, VehSmart sought out services from Globalstar to facilitate a contract between VehSmart and the Ministry of Fishing and Agriculture in Ecuador. The alleged contract was for the sale of Globalstar's SmartOne satellite tracking device.

    Globalstar alleges that on Apr. 16, 2014, and Jun, 25, 2014, Globalstar and VehSmart entered into two loan agreements where Globalstar agreed to loan VehSmart $175,000 and $400,000, respectively, for security interest and specific performance. According to the lawsuit, VehSmart was obligated to repay the first loan in full, plus interest by Oct. 16, 2014, and the second loan by Dec. 25, 2014. Globalstar alleges that it has not received any payments from VehSmart.

    Globalstar is suing for $589,800, the amount owed under the two loan agreements and accrued interest. The satellite company is being represented by attorney John Alden Meade, of Young Cotter & Meade LLC in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana Court Case number 2:15-cv-05813-SSV-MBN"

    END Quote:
    I assume the Ministry of Fishing and Agriculture in Ecuador is continuing to pay the monthly service charge to Globalstar in order to keep the tracking services operating? I don't know anything about VehSmart, first I heard of them. They signed a contract - that's not a bribe - you have to pay it back.

    Not sure who transscribomdllc5 is posting to with that question - take a look at the closing price for today. Some pushed it down to about $10 and then it rose up again. People have to use their own decisions as to 'exit strategy' or whatever. Anyway, why the negativity when some people made money on a long position, transcribomdllc5? GSAT'ers will get the chance to make the same choices from the way things appear lately, IMO. Probably the shorts here in GSAT ought to be making a wise decision now or wait to have their decision made for them by default.

    What do we suppose will happen to the small shorts when the big shorts leave here? I don't bother to worry about that - it's just encouraging to me to see that how fast the tide can turn for a long position.

  • There was this other company up until tonight that was getting distorted by an author of Short articles. The company was trading around $2 at the close - then.... $19 AH's. Not sure where it will open in the morning. Reading their board, some shorts are destroyed just like that. Organized short, but they got clocked. Stock market needs more events like that, maybe GSAT can be part of the new trend that seems to be happening with some of these vicious Short gangs? Stock - KBIO. Imagine the pain.

    Just do a Google search using the headline posted above - there's no trick to finding the link that way. Those that wrote to the SEC here are not the only ones making reports. I think the SEC must be getting flooded by reports - time for them to do something. They will need to put in new rules too, if they can't get the job done the way things are currently. The market isn't just about twisting manipulation - that has to be squashed.

    TAC to report FINAL recommendations to FCC

    Here's the link to the last TAC meeting video: fccDOTgov/events/technological-advisory-council-meeting-september-24th-2015

    This message board discussed the September meeting, should be able to find the older posts by searching. Statements were made on various topics of progress toward TAC recommendations - and certainly there were obvious references in the TAC meeting that could not have been anything other than TLPS. There were also give and take between the TAC members and FCC staffers that implied the FCC does not favor more regulation or bottlenecks. A full TAC vote defeated the idea of higher standards of testing to 'prove' new technologies. Support was expressed to continue with Part 15 rules.

    Dec 9 they hand in their term papers (as it were). They clearly indicated that they have been talking about ways to allow satellite companies to use spectrum efficiently and terrestrially. Their recommendation will have a lot of weight, but the FCC does not 'require' their recommendations as necessary to any specific decision precondition, IMO. The commissioners could circulate a document, and remember they often request or insert 'editorial privileges' which would allow the commission to adjust their decision in light of recommendations. They don't have to wait. The TAC recommendation may be like a ribbon tied on the package, and there is certainly no reason to think that Chairman Wheeler won't know well in advance what those recommendations contain. IMO.

  • Scheduled December 9th meeting. Be ready.

    Sham also took a slap at GSAT in one of the KiddieDale tweets. He's drooling STRP is 90% over valued.

    But it seems doubtful that these numerous doctors and the companies that are involved would engage in any activity that would later damage their reputations - so they aren't 'bumping it up'. I know what you meant - I'm just twisting it a bit. These other companies may be willing to be hired as contractors, but they have their own businesses to run and they would never sell themselves out of their own market interests. This is a big part of why I don't think this is a scam - there's too much at stake and that's where the line is drawn. There are ways to raise doubts, but that only goes so far compared to what we see here. People and businesses don't act against their own best interests, if they want to stay in business and preserve their professional medical reputations.
