    Broadband Speed Improves on hub reset, then next day, very slow again?

    I agree with both the last posts, it would be way cheaper and much faster to use a mixture of 4G and/or fixed wireless broadband to get universal service in rural areas. Fibre is very nice, but boy it would cost a small fortune to get universal fibre to premises access in rural areas. It’s no...

    5G in rural areas

    Let’s put it this way, from the time I ordered, it took them about 11 months (elapsed) to build it. Actual expended effort/time, it could have all been done and dusted in around 2 weeks, probably far less. When we used to have an active copper landline, any faults took ages to sort, and even...

    5G in rural areas

    4G is indeed very reliable. My 4G service from EE did stellar service as the sole broadband for almost 6 years from early 2014 until my FTTP went live a month or two ago. It carried our landline voice as voip and also backhauled our mobile voice Suresignal traffic. I still keep it as a backup...

    Broadband Speed Improves on hub reset, then next day, very slow again?

    I came to that conclusion about six years ago and did the same thing. Have only just recently gone back to a “landline” but this one is made of glass and skips merrily along. Still keep the 4G connection live into the router, as a backup, and swapped from EE to Virgin after my last contract...

    Ez steer controller???

    You’d need T autopilot for that (eg. a kit with either a Nav II, Nav III or later steering controller to control the valve).

    5G in rural areas

    Completely reliable. It’s mostly down to the antenna. External antenna will give you the most reliable connection. If you’re a long way from the mast get a directional Yagi style or directional panel antenna. Failing that just call Solwise and the helpful chaps will sort you out.

    Trimble leads

    Coax leads are cheap to buy or get made with whatever connectors you need on the ends. It’s 50-ohm coax and the terminations are generally either TNC (screw up), BNC (bayonet) or N-type (large screw style). Power cables are a little more tricky as they’re typically Deutsch DT type or similar...

    No more new diesel or petrol cars from 2040 onwards

    No doubt. :p

    Interesting to see that good old John Cadogan agrees that Hydrogen into conventional ICE (Internal Combustion Engines for those still unfamiliar with the acronym) makes absolutely no sense at all. Fuel cell based H2 drive is however a very different beast. Interesting watch on a rainy evening.

    UK mobile spectrum allocations below. The 5G spectrum is shown in the oval lasso @ 3.5 GHz, with how much slice of the action each operator has.

    case ih 5100 series compensator valve

    Probably not. Might be easier/cheaper to find a whole new pump assy. with the compensator fitted. Have you gone down the path of stripping it to check for any foreign matter etc as per posts above?

    What3Words #Help999FindYou awareness campaign

    I’m not keen on it. I hate to bust JP1s bubble here, but it’s a completely proprietary and locked in system. It’s a monopoly in other words. Not really a good approach (for anyone other than W3W) I think in my humble view for a geolocation system. From a competing system, but some words of...

    Finally a legitimate way to get a giant tv screen (or 3) through the books.

    Been bandied about for a while now.
