jenis communication deviceWhen we found this informative article we were so pleased, having sought for over a year for this, finding it on this site was an thrilling day for me.

The model of radio has been working and profitable for years. The only difference between WABC radio and YourDomain.com is they have an audience (akin to web traffic) and they are pros at producing audience attracting audio content that they broadcast 24 hours a day to a limited area geographically. With your dot com, you can broadcast audience-attracting audio content just good as theirs, broadcast it on demand to anywhere in the world, and make profits with niches where they can’t.

Example: Fly fishing radio, Pottery artists radio, Swing trading 2 Way Radio, Hair coloring tips radio, thousands of other possible niches would fail horribly in traditional radio broadcast models, but niches thrive on the internet, and so does niche internet radio. Once the audience is built, if yours is not already, all the profitable techniques of traditional radio apply. It would not be spam in an internet radio program to advertise and direct listeners to online offers. You could run all the audio ads you want. But be careful, people are 1 click away from not listening. Yet, we are conditioned to hear, “This program is brought to you by XYZ advertiser” and 8 minutes of every hour, radio plays commercials, and you could do the same on Internet radio programming.

Internet radio is just broadcast quality content being streamed over the internet. That is it, nothing more. There are 2 variations, and both are considered internet radio. One version is live content being streamed in real time based on a time schedule, but in reality that is not really necessary or cost effective for that matter. What I believe to be the next wave of useful marketing tactics using audio on the web, is building a niche internet radio station which will have tremendous marketing and audience building potential. It will be in the broadcaster’s best interest to produce killer-archived content and post that regularly to stream on demand for their listeners.

This is so easy and cost effective to do, and does not require the live production techniques of traditional radio, nor the high costs and server infrastructure of live feed internet audio streaming. Be aware live streaming can be done through web companies such as website or website and many other others that have the data centers to multicast audio streams in real time. Internet radio needs only to be great audio content available upon demand online, and I see as an incredible opportunity for marketers of niche products and services to create to build audience or traffic to their online offerings.

Why aren’t we smarter already Evolutionary limits on cognition

0

My basic review of this new article it begins well, looks quite awesome, is simple to run and actually power resourceful, the walkie talkie iphone case really is a fine product. I’m happy I purchased it, read further underneath.

(Medical Xpress) — We put a lot of energy into improving our memory, intelligence, and attention. There are even drugs that make us sharper, such as Ritalin and caffeine. But maybe smarter isn’t really all that better. A new paper published in Current Directions in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, warns that there are limits on how smart humans can get, and any increases in thinking ability are likely to come with problems.
The authors looked to evolution to understand about why humans are only as smart as we are and not any smarter. “A lot of people are interested in drugs that can enhance cognition in various ways,” says Thomas Hills of the University of Warwick, who cowrote the article with Ralph Hertwig of the University of Basel. “But it seems natural to ask, why aren’t we smarter already?”
Tradeoffs are common in evolution. It might be nice to be eight feet tall, but most hearts couldn’t handle getting blood up that high. So most humans top out under six feet. Just as there are evolutionary tradeoffs for physical traits, Hills says, there are tradeoffs for intelligence. A baby’s brain size is thought to be limited by, among other things, the size of the mother’s pelvis; bigger brains could mean more deaths in childbirth, and the pelvis can’t change substantially without changing the way we stand and walk.
Drugs like Ritalin and amphetamines help people pay better attention. But they often only help people with lower baseline abilities; people who don’t have trouble paying attention in the first place can actually perform worse when they take attention-enhancing drugs. That suggests there is some kind of upper limit to how much people can or should pay attention. “This makes sense if you think about a focused task like driving,” Hills says, “where you have to pay attention, but to the right things—which may be changing all the time. If your attention is focused on a shiny billboard or changing the channel on the 2 Way Radio, you’re going to have problems.”
It may seem like a good thing to have a better memory, but people with excessively vivid memories have a difficult life. “Memory is a double-edged sword,” Hills says. In post-traumatic stress disorder, for example, a person can’t stop remembering some awful episode. “If something bad happens, you want to be able to forget it, to move on.”
Even increasing general intelligence can cause problems. Hills and Hertwig cite a study of Ashkenazi Jews, who have an average IQ much higher than the general European population. This is apparently because of evolutionary selection for intelligence in the last 2,000 years. But, at the same time, Ashkenazi Jews have been plagued by inherited diseases like Tay-Sachs disease that affect the nervous system. It may be that the increase in brain power has caused an increase in disease.
Given all of these tradeoffs that emerge when you make people better at thinking, Hills says, it’s unlikely that there will ever be a supermind. “If you have a specific task that requires more memory or more speed or more accuracy or whatever, then you could potentially take an enhancer that increases your capacity for that task,” he says. “But it would be wrong to think that this is going to improve your abilities all across the board.”

SEPURA LAUNCHES NEW WEAPON FOR COVERT OPERATIVES

Again a new article i thought was fascinating on the topic of walkie talkie urban dictionary’s, what would you need to do if i didn’t post this ehh? you would have to find the original article, the chances that you found it could be slim, so think yourself fortunate that ive shared this excellent piece with you.

walkie talkie xs cargoA new weapon in the fight against terrorism was unveiled in Asia today by Cambridge UK 2 Way Radio communications technology business Sepura.

It has launched groundbreaking, noise eliminating technology branded NN5 for covert operatives working in political and military missions.

NN5 is specifically designed to help covert teams operate in environments with high levels of electro-magnetic interference; it eliminates noise in places such as cars, vans, trains, factories and shopping centres where covert teams often experience interference.

NN5, launched at GPEC Asia in Malaysia, comprises a range of discreet earpieces and a specially-designed facility connector. Its transmitter uses a novel, specialised audio signal modulation method, specifically developed to provide optimum performance in conjunction with the advanced digital signal processing implemented in the NN5 digital wireless receiver.

As a result, the NN5 is said to achieve outstanding speech quality across the whole spectrum of covert applications where standard inductive devices are inoperable. The NN5 earpiece is also described as the smallest discreet version on the market.

Jonathan Hamill, director of covert specialist solutions at Sepura, said: Covert operatives have experienced background noise in vehicles and other places with high electro-magnetic interference for years. The NN5 solves this problem.

This means that covert teams will be able to communicate clearly and effectively in locations where the inability to eliminate noise posed significant issues. By eliminating noise interference and providing a small, discreet earpiece, the NN5 is the ideal and seamlessly integrated solution for covert teams and enables them to operate safely.

Sepura is the undisputed leader in the global covert market. The launch of the NN5 demonstrates our commitment to technological development and our ability to listen to customer issues and deliver innovative, well thought-out solutions.

Sepura has won Business Weeklys coveted International Trade title for the last two years.

communication device warehouse 13This was originally posted on this website, credit should go them as this is a important article.
CML Microcircuits, a leading innovator and provider of low-power semiconductors for global wireless data and Walkie talkie communications markets, has released an NXDN processor with embedded Air Interface (AI) Protocol.
The CMX7131/7141 with the NXDN Function Image connects directly to the market-leading CMX994 Direct Conversion Receiver IC. Together, these devices form a formidable chip-set, enabling a fast development cycle for small, highly-integrated, multi-standard capable digital radios that will exhibit a long battery life.
The majority of the NXDN air interface physical layer (layer 1) and data link layer (layer 2) is embedded in the NXDN Function Image, plus a host of advanced features to support the complete The walkie talkie system and simplify the overall radio design process.
NXDN is an FDMA digital Land Mobile Radio (LMR) open standard and has evolved to become a key narrowband technology in the LMR migration from analogue to digital. NXDN is supported by more than 25 international radio manufacturers and organisations that together form the NXDN Forum.
The new NXDN Function Image adds to the existing suite of CMX7131/7141 function images, now covering dPMR, NXDN, ARIB STD-T98, ARIB STD-T102 and legacy analogue PMR. A radio platform using the CMX7131/7141 can be switched to deliver any of these systems by uploading the appropriate Function Image. This allows radio manufacturers to take advantage of economies-of-scale by adopting a Software Defined Radio (SDR) design route, with one radio design supporting a number of different systems and markets.
The DE9944 FDMA SDR Demonstrator is also available, providing the fastest route from development through to production.
The CMX7131/CMX7141 processors and function images are available now, offering low power 3.3V operation in small VQFN/LQFP packaging.

Call for digital Walkie Talkies in phones

2 way radio communication systemAnyway ladies and gentlemen, i have the second excellent 2 way radio multi pack piece of writing to read, i know, you do not need to thank me all, just add a social like to the piece to prove your appreciation.

The BBC’s new director of radio has called for mobile phones to come installed with digital radio receivers because the experience of streaming radio on smartphones is so poor.

Helen Boaden said radio faced a battle for the attention of young audiences.
“As you know if you’ve tried to listen, buffering, data charges and bill shock are all too common problems when listening on mobile phones,” she said.
“It’s just not good enough and the young will not be interested.”
Ms Boaden’s comments to the Radio Festival in Salford come as the European radio industry begins negotiations with handset manufacturers about installing digital radio chips as standard.

“Together with a coalition of radio broadcasters from around the world, we’re developing new standards to transform this experience and to encourage manufacturers to build digital Radio into their phones as part of the standard offer in the UK,” she said.

So far, built-in DAB receivers have been restricted to a few phone models.
Offered resignation Ms Boaden became head of BBC Radio in April after being moved from her post as head of BBC News in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

She told delegates she offered her resignation in the week the ITV documentary about Savile’s abuse aired. BBC Newsnight had earlier dropped its investigation into the presenter.
“I offered my resignation… not because we’d suppressed the journalism but because as the head of news I felt we’d made a bad mistake – we’d missed a story, and it was on my watch,” she said.
“They turned it down because they said, ‘If you leave now it will look like we did suppress the journalism’.”
She said she was allowed to take another senior post at the corporation because she had been a “good citizen over many years”.

Asked after her speech whether she had been “palmed off” on BBC Radio, she replied: “People have to judge me by how I do the job.
“It’s not nearly the easy job that people think because a we’re facing huge financial challenges in the BBC, we’re facing this digital revolution and I think we always have to shout hard in an organisation that’s obsessed with television.”
During her speech, Ms Boaden, a former BBC Radio 4 controller, said the radio industry “is being challenged like never before”.

“I’ve returned to find our radio industry in the midst of probably its greatest ever period of change, or certainly since the birth of commercial radio 40 years ago,” she said.
‘Twitter DJs’ Meanwhile, BBC Radio 1 has announced it is to hire its first “social media DJ” to talk to its audience on Facebook and Twitter.
The station’s controller Ben Cooper said he would hire one for Radio 1 and another for sister station 1Xtra.
He told the Radio Festival radio stations have to “win the battle on the mobile phone if you are to stay relevant with young people today”.

“We employ DJs to talk to our audience, communicate with our audience, relate to our audience,” he said.
“[They] set a conversation going with our audience on the airwaves, and they represent our brands on the airwaves.
“What I want to do now is employ two people, one for each station, to just look after the social media.”

A Brief History Of The Walkie Talkie

So to carry on my run of content on this website, I have decided to share one of our favorite content pieces this week. I used to be tentative to include it to a site as I actually didn’t wish to offend the original writer, but I hope he/she is glad that I enjoyed reading their article and wanted to share it with my readers.

It is expect that nearly every household in the United States has at least one radio. The invention of the radio was dependent upon two previous discoveries: the electromagnet and telegraph. The electromagnet was discovered in 1825. This discovery opened the doors to global communication! Five years later, Joseph Henry successfully transmitted an electric current via wire which was stretched over a mile and which caused an electromagnet to trigger the sounding of a bell.

Thus, the electric telegraph was born. One of the most recognizable names associated with the telegraph is Samuel Morse who is most notable for the series of dots (brief sound) and dashes (more sustained sound) which was used to transmit messages by alphabet code (thus known as Morse Code).
Telegraph became the sole means of rapid long distance communication until 1877 and the invention of the telephone.
Batteries are interesting, aren`t they? Used by the general consumer, they are small, but powerfully packed instruments which produce power used for many cameras, alarm clocks, radios, and other devices. What makes this power production possible? In the case of the telephone and it`s early design and use, batteries produced the essential source of power for the electromagnet.

Batteries have two ends to which one is assigned a `+` or positive, and the other a `-` or negative. When a battery operated device is switched on, the electrons which are produced by the batteries, quickly move from the negative side to the positive side of the batteries.
Something was needed to interrupt this rapid flow of electrons or find the batteries totally expended in a brief time. In order to accomplish this, a wire is often inserted between the positive and negative terminals and a `load`, such as a radio, creating a small magnetic field in the wire.

The electromagnetic waves which are present now, have the capability to transmit sounds (speech, music, and so on) as well as visual images undetected by sight through the air.
There are several scientists who must be mentioned as essential to the telephone as it is known to most of us. Mahlon Loomis created wireless telegraph. Guglielmo Marconi, proved the possibility of Motorola radio communication. In 1985 Marconi, transmitted and received a radio signal.

Using the Morse alphabet, he sent the first wireless signal which was transmitted across the English Channel and in due time, he was able to receive the Morse letter S which began in England and reached Newfoundland which became the beginning of transatlantic radiotelegraphy (1902).

Wireless signals gained far reaching use as a means of communication for rescue work when an accident or disaster occurred at sea. In 1899 the United States Army began utilize wireless communication which originated from a lightship off Fire Island. The US Navy was about two years behind the Army in utilizing wireless telegraphy.

In 1903, President Roosevelt (Theodore) and King Edward VII communicated via this new and improving technology. The well known Robert Perry, using radiotelegraphy, conveyed the message that he had `found the Pole`.
The first AM radio entered the world of telecommunication in the early 1900`s. This device made the use of somewhat weak waves possible for communication. This was the time when the term `radio`, as we know today for radio devices, began to be used.

It is believed that in December 23, 1900, professor Reginald Aubrey Fessenden was the first person to successfully transmit human voice by radio waves. By 1915, speech was first sent across the United States beginning in New York City and sent to San Francisco.
Somewhat later, transmission occurred across the Atlantic Ocean from Arlington, Virginia, to Paris at the Eiffel Tower.
It is truly fascinating all the scientists and the physics theories that led to the invention of the radio. Marconi, Alexander Popov, Oliver Lodge, Fessenden and many others, have all made important contributions to an invention that made the world so different, that most likely none of them would envision.

The radio era was born.
