SpaceX may want to launch 42,000 internet satellites — about 5 times more spacecraft than humanity has ever flown

SpaceX wants to surround Earth with a fleet of internet satellites called Starlink. Original plans called for launching nearly 12,000 satellites over the next 8 years or so. However, Space News reports that SpaceX has asked to launch 30,000 more satellites for a maximum of 42,000. This figure is about 20 times the number of working satellites today and nearly five times the total of all spacecraft humanity has ever launched since 1957.

Go Ahead and Use Phonetics on 2m FM

Sometimes radio amateurs suggest that phonetics are not needed on VHF FM.  (See examples here and here.) Sometimes it even sounds like it’s a bad thing to use phonetics on FM.  It is inefficient and slows things down. I can see the logic behind this because with decent signal strength, demodulated FM audio is usually quite clear and easy to understand. Here’s what I wrote in my VHF FM Operating Guide, also downplaying the need for phonetics: The use of phonetics is not usually required due to t...
