Have now seen everything

Rain.

In San Diego.

Enough to cause drop outs and re-acqs at SDO.

Does have to be pretty bad to impact gateway communications. Those folks deal with feast or famine when it comes to rain.

Re: Have now seen everything

They're currently under flood warnings, which means it's pretty bad.

It's dry, but unlike like Southern Texas where a little squall causes mass drownings.

And just because I don't want to start a new thread:


I've talked about how strange IoT has gotten in the past and how things that really shouldn't be connected to the internet, just because it would be cool to do it. Without being too specific, have a look at the most recent Wired article. Just know that it's specially R-rated for Valentine's Day.

  I've often wondered if Hughes chooses their gateway locations for their clear weather? 

 

  If so, is there one in El Paso, Texas?  I was stationed there between 1967 and 1969.  It almost never rains. but when it does the whole place floods.  Very interesting to drive a deuce and a half  ( army slang for a two and half ton truck)  down one of those flooded desert roads, where there's no fence posts, telephone poles, or anything else to show you where the pavement might be.  You sort of slowly feel your way along.

Funny you say that, because I was thinking about Kelly AFB (now Annex due to BRAC) in San Antonio when I wrote that.

  Great minds think together.  Smiley Embarassed)>

 

   I was a Army MP at the time and several of my friends went to dog handler school at Lackland AFB in San Antonio.  Some of those guys were in tears when we all got transferred to a regular MP company, and they all had to give up their dogs     I believe the army has since changed that policy and you can keep your dog now.

 

  Ah, those were the good ole days!  That's one of the problems with getting old, you have so many good ole days behind you, and maybe not so many ahead.  Smiley Embarassed)>

 

  Just think, we started out in San Diego, went through El Paso on our way to San Antonio.  At this rate, I'll be back in Florida in nothing flat.  Smiley Embarassed)>

Although my background is both Tactical and Strategic Army, but a bit was Army/National. I made it to several AFBs in my career.
