AIRLINES FINALLY WARNING ABOUT 5G
If you've been following the implications of the injections for pilots and air traffic controllers, you're probably aware that there's another looming set of problems attached to the rollout of 5G, namely, that the frequencies involved are very close to those used by aircraft altimeters. This story was spotted and shared by "vsoc, " and finally the airlines and air freight shippers have decided to act:
The problem in a nutshell:
As telecommunication giants Verizon and AT&T prepare to roll out their hotly anticipated new 5G service on Wednesday, major U.S. airlines are warning that the launch will result in “catastrophic” disruption for the aviation industry.
In a letter sent Monday to Biden administration officials, a group of airline CEOs stressed that the forthcoming C-Band 5G deployment would ground “huge swaths” of the U.S. fleet and “could potentially strand tens of thousands of Americans overseas.”
“Unless our major hubs are cleared to fly, the vast majority of the traveling and shipping public will essentially be grounded,” they said in the letter, viewed by NBC News.
The airline executives stated plainly that the rollout could be accompanied by an aviation crisis the likes of which the country has never seen.
“To be blunt, the nation’s commerce will grind to a halt,” they stated plainly.
The letter was reportedly signed by the CEOs of American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, and Jet Blue, as well as by leaders of shipping companies UPS and FedEx.
Here's a thought: it's difficult to have an internet of things if the things delivering the things are unable to fly and, indeed, perhaps crashing and burning because of altimeter interference and/or other unforeseen implications and complications. So rather than disrupt what's already there, why not redesign the other, and make very certain there are no long term environmental effects before implementing it. That rather obvious and common sense approach raises a disturbing question:
Is there another much more hidden agenda behind 5G? Does someone want global flight and mobility grounded? Does someone want a major disruption in airline and air freight industries?
I have no answers to those questions, but they do hover uneasily over the whole discussion, and I'd be interested to hear if anyone has any ideas, for it's truly a case of "you tell me."
See you on the flip side...
