Maglan capital promised price increase in July or August .... August is almost beyond Maglan ....
here's something people here might want to be aware of
nothing new cuz it's been in the works for a couple years................I posted about it back then cuz they'll be sharing the portion of our uplink spectrum which some here have been saying GSAT has exclusively
I believe today was the final initial comment day on RM 11793 but I can't seem to pull up the FCC files on it

PC, your myriad explanations for a horrible attitude and confused, unstructured writing are well known. You attack anyone who disagrees with you, like Aero just this morning. For 17 years I've watched you do it again and again to an endless succession of well-meaning people. You think posturing superiority is the same as being superior.
I guarantee that my education exceeds yours. Hammer away all you want. It just shows how ignorant you are. There's a reason why so many Ivy League scholars end up teaching at small Ohio liberal arts colleges and why 8-American presidents are from Ohio. Aviation, direct current and the light bulb were invented here. Get over it - and - learn to write. If you won't, at least try to temper your attitude.
TELUS Waldo about LTE Coverage
I left Leamington headed for home and anchored 200 yards from the ONLY cell tower on Pelee Island. It's on the NE corner of the island near the old lighthouse. As I ate lunch l kept wondering why they put it here instead of the center of the island where users would have stronger signals.
It turns out the new tower is a TELUS tower. The previously reported Rogers signal originates in Leamington. That's why my fisherman friend only had 2-bars on his hotspot. It's also why the signal faded to non-existence halfway down the island on my bike ride to the winery. Verizon charges $5 per day for connection to either service.
As I examined the antennas on the TELUS 100' tower, I realized it's a repeater tower. That is, it doesn't have its own fiber feed. Just above the tree line are point-to-point antennas pointing north toward Leamington. They are probably using C or Ku-band to feed and backhaul the standard low-band LTE antennas up top.
That explains why the signal oscillates mostly between 1-3 Bars even close to the tower. It's at least a double hop back to the Internet. It also explains the periodic latency issues I encountered. If you look at the TELUS coverage map of Ontario here:
...you realize they don't claim 4G LTE on Pelee Island.
That said, Saturday was a spectacularly clear day. I was able to stream Pandora on a 1-bar TELUS signal until south of Fish point. So, it is better than expected and there have been improvements made since last summer when coverage was dismal.
After repeated attempts, I was still unable to get the Kyocera phone to connect. However, for the first time since I had a Verizon bag phone I was able to call my wife from north of Kelleys Island with my Kyocera. So, it has great signal sensitivity.
As long as macrocells are used there are going to be pockets of poor signal strength and quality. There is a worldwide market for a mobile integrated device that can switch between cellular and MSS. I think a future Sat-Fi device will do that - hopefully the next one that also integrates Globalstar's expected terrestrial LAA service.

I'm on my boat in Lake Erie. As previously reported on this MB, I lose my Verizon signal within 5 miles from shore. A couple weeks ago on a similar trip - in and around Sandusky Bay - I always had at least 3-bar LTE. On that trip I was streaming Pandora, connecting to the Internet with my laptop - via my IPad hotspot - and even running an RDP session over VPN to a college server where I used to work. It was simply amazing.
5-miles north of Sandusky all that ends. I had better Verizon service in the 1990s using an analog bag phone from my old sail boat. It was so irritating that a few years ago I quit Verizon and went to Sprint, which has worse service where I live, but better service in the islands. At least I could make a phone call- although data service was terrible. So, a year and a half ago I switched back to Verizon - I drank the Koolaid again about the "best 4G LTE service".
My Kyocera phone doesn't work here even though a similar Sprint phone did. The new phone is supposed to work because it has both CDMA and GSM. It says it has a weak GSM signal but can't connect. However, the Canadians are busy on their phones. A fisherman friend from prior visits showed a Rogers LTE hotspot with 2-bars. 3-4 hours later, the iPad finally connected to the same service.
I had checked the Verizon web site before I left and told my wife they were claiming free unlimited voice and text in Canada and Mexico, but my first text message from Verizon informed me it would "only cost $5 per day". That's $150 per month.
Luckily, if I sit on the bench outside the marina office, I can use their WiFi. So, that's what I did after sending my wife a check-in message from the Globalstar Spot Gen3. Within a couple minutes, I got an email from FindMeSpot.com with my coordinates and a link to a Google map.
Bingo! It's right on the money, down to the exact slip and corroborated by Rogers LTE location services. Check out the cropped map here:
Pretty cool huh? My phone doesn't work. My iPad does - finally - at $5 extra a day. At home it is $10 per month. The Gen3? About $16 a month with basic precision.
On the way across the Lake, as the Verizon signal was fading to non-existence, I called my wife to let her know all was well. Without prompting, she asked me if I had the Spot with me. I said, "Of course". She asked me to send her a check-in so she can see exactly where I am every night.
Problem solved. She knows where Waldo is, no matter how bad the terrestrial service is.
More later on why this marina needs a Globalstar small cell TD-LTE hotspot...

Thanks to trump we are down. Great let's keep making America poor again........ So far terrible job of crazy President.
Soon we will be on he TDD chart just below Channel 41. Ericsson provided Globalstar's Core Network...
Satfi and pcstel please . We are tired of this b.s. !
Where's Waldo's WiFi?
He spent the better part of the morning riding around this Canadian island in Lake Erie. The marina was the only place where there was WiFi and it went dead 50' outside the marina office. Not even the ferry dock has WiFi. The bakery? Nope. The winery? Nope. Nada.
So, Waldo went to the Winery tasting room to do a complimentary tasting of three of the new vintages. The limestone soil here produces some very nice Baco, Gamay and Pinot Noirs. And, while talking about them with the 20-something sommelier, Waldo asked about WiFi. She said, "There isn't really anywhere on the island that has it." She was irritated about having a summer job on an island where she couldn't keep in touch with her friends the way she wants to. Apparently, Waldo's frustration is shared by the Canadians.
So, not only doesn't Waldo's Verizon Kyocera work - and it works everywhere in the USA where it finds a signal - but in an emergency 911 in Canada it won't save his life. And, the iPad cell signal on most of the island is so weak, that if poor Waldo didn't have his Spot Gen3 and had a heart attack from peddling so far, he could expire before someone found him. So much for Verizon's unlimited talk and text in Canada and the GSM phone.
Wanting to get away from it all does not mean one doesn't want to share the fun with friends and family. Many island businesses are closed or for sale, at the same time that businesses on similar USA islands in Lake Erie are thriving. The difference? Basic utilities like Telecom.
The island would be a great place for a small cell network of Globalstar TD-LTE focused on the island businesses. 2-4 such cells would cover the entire marina. Boaters would stay longer than a couple days. Perhaps with similar coverage, the hotel and grocery store would reopen. Maybe the best restaurant, with outstanding perch and walleye dinners, would take down its For Sale sign. Maybe the bakery would too.
Tomorrow, weather permitting, Waldo is off to the north shore of Lake Erie. If he can find a WiFi signal, he'll fill you in about how the Trace is working...

Yup. On the money. Interesting that the Trace "Stop Movement" and Gen3 Check-In locations are about 50' apart. That seems to be due to the Trace's lesser precision. The Gen3 is right on the money, within 3' of where the device is located. The Google map shows the check-in right on the dock.

Ive been long for too long (3.5 years) Im normally quiet and read the FB pages too. 1 thing to keep in mind, here we get sat and pcstel going at it for years, FB you get Coolaid to drink. I dnt know whats worse. this better happen in 30 days or it wont ever happen. its getting over cooked after all this time.
Options expiring again on Friday. The $2.00 Puts are still too close to call. How many times are options writers going to rewrite these? Anybody know what the borrow rate is these days?
T-Mobile just took a huge step towards beating Verizon once and for all
This April, T-Mobile spent $8 billion on new low-band spectrum to improve its wireless network. As of right now, that network is online. A "cluster site" in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is the first place in the country to be lit up with T-Mobile's 600MHz LTE
