we too in AUS have a decreasing 2g coverage, only Vodafone and Optus support it now, and those are sunsetted. I expect the same will happen in NZ where @ Mtylerjr is, but the scale of the IoS (internet of sheep) there means they are probably a little slower to decommission the 2g network
Yeah, there is a lot of shutdown of 2G -voice- services, but 2g [em]data[/em] services will be around for at least another 8 years avccording to vodaphone"
“Vodafone has said it will continue to allow data devices such as electricity meters to connect to its 2G network until at least 2025, regardless of when the voice service is shut down.”
I’m just going to use the SMS capability, not voice. My rocket is going to text me it’s GPS location.
I launched a much smaller C-engine rocket a few time over the weekend with my son (no electronics) and we both lost sight of it when it passed 1000ft or so. My son did pick it up again (his eyesight is much better) and we found the rocket again, but I cant rely on visual tracking for the big G-engine multi-stager. It will need to txt me it’s landing coordinates.
It just occurs to me that I will be launching a G80-TH module with a G80-7T engine.
