Questions for Comms Guys
2.5 questions, actually.
1) How long does it take for modern Direction Finding teams (based in USA) to find a transmitter? (How long do you have to be on-air before they can find you) - and is this a passive technology on their part? Or do they have to be actively looking for transmissions?
2) What is the answer for the Team that wants all bands/all modes as well as encryption, Frequency Hopping, and burst transmission capability?
I am looking at the unit above as outlined at Signal Corps (here) for my personal rig, as I want optimum capability and mobility. I know burst/encryption/hopping are all verboten, but what should a man buy today for the moment WROL arrives and he wants those capabilities?
Hmm...3.5 questions: How much are you professional Comms Guys concerned that Motorola is now owned by Google, a company that has proven to be willing to help .gov when asked - are you moving away from Motorola equipment because of potential back doors?
