Sun N Fun 2009 from Technorati
This little event in the air show circuit happened last week. The Bowl took a Saturday and some sunscreen to Lakeland Linder Regional Airport to check out the flotsam… One of the cool but slightly dangerous things about the Fun N Sun, is that you are on active taxiways.

Anyway, because I'm pretty much boycotting YouTube for military content, I uploaded this video onto my account. All great videos about our nation's heroes should be hosted there.

WK2 and the Media from Mojave Skies by Alan Radecki
... What also resulted was a confluence of media attention that surprised many. Traditionally, Scaled Composites refrains from commenting publicly after test flights, a combination of their near-legendary secrecy and a desire to let their customer direct the material that the media receives. In this case, their customer is Virgin Galactic, which as part of the Virgin Group, has a reputation for stage-managing as much as possible any and all media coverage. As they're in the business of selling tickets, they naturally want to maximize their efforts, and control all the forces that affect them. ...

Glad to stumble your article.
ARRL Technical Relations Specialist Walt Ireland, WB7CSL, and International Amateur Radio Union's Peter Chadwick, G3RZP, are representing Amateur Radio at a meeting of the International Telecommunication Union Task Group 1/8 on Ultra-Wideband (UWB). The Boston gathering continues through June 18. Ireland says he and Chadwick are particularly interested in UWB compatibility issues, including aggregate noise levels from the operation of UWB devices. The meeting will include a demonstration of UWB equipment.

In February 2003 the FCC adopted final rules in the UWB proceeding, ET Docket 98-153, with technical standards and operational restrictions for UWB use in the US. The Boston meeting is aimed at establishing global UWB standards.
