SPOT again, the confusion

Ben Ellison

Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    The New York Times actually has a wonderful example of Steganography (hiding things in plain sight) for their corrections.
    Good luck in getting that corrected….

    West Marine has SPOT all over their web-site, with the tag line SPOT “LIVE TO TELL ABOUT IT”

    The NYT did it again on January 30th. There was an article about SPOT saying that it can transmit your position via the GPS satellites even when out of range of cellular towers.

    Although it is in the edge of the grey area for SPOT coverage, my SPOT just made contact with the satellite from Cebu in the Philippines. It was early evening. Several previous attempts during daytime failed.
