OpenSky Network failing?

The OpenSky Network is a statewide cell site based emergency communications system.  The system is a brand new style of digital encrypted communications which would be 'unhackable' and 'unmonitorable'.  NY State launched this 2 billion dollar program to install repeaters in townships across the state following the 9/11 attacks.  The idea was that it would provide a 'secure' and connected system which ALL agencies could all access, no matter where they are in in the state.  The system also offers the flexability to connect all the agencies together and interlink them at the press of a button

Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis

I wanted to talk about this game for a bit.  I do not know why it is, but it seems many of the older games really 'got it right' when it came to the actual game itself.  Forget about graphics.  Sure many of the new games have amazing graphics which makes it look like you are right there on the battlefield, or whatever.  But their playability lacks once you have finished the single player campaign missions.  Sure most decent games out there have multiplayer ability, and some games are solely dedicated to Multiplayer like Team Fortress 2 (which is excellent by the way).

The Ham Repeater

I wanted to tell a story which happened to me in my past life (i.e. my life in Canada).  In early 2005 and into 2006 Myself along with a few friends, decided to build ourselves a UHF amature radio repeater in Toronto.  The group which I will call the 'Shockers' (Shockers International Radio Club) wanted a special repeater which we could utilize with our own radios, and which would serve the GTA.  Of course there are many many UHF repeaters in Toronto, but their either very crappy, range wise,  or very popular and filled with spam, or grumpy old ham farts.
