Don't take the commentary personally.

The problem with this particular topic is that essentially every item of evidence, even what many would objectively categorise as "hard evidence", can be made fit into essentially diametrically opposed theories. If there's any uncertainty at all, or you need to make assumptions (such as in what state of activation and where a flight crew member might have their mobile phone), you will end up with myriad interpretations.

MH 370 Will never be found

However there are people who want to find it. Being a retired Boeing Captain with MAS and having lived in KL for many years, I grew accustomed to the way Malay people think and operate.
If there is an official person or committee involved in the search for MH370, but who have no contact with MAS, please contact me. To me, many obvious things are being overlooked.
Cheers,
AA

By MAS, you mean Mana Ada System?

Nevertheless, political correctness would preclude any official person contacting you about your experiences with the MAS company culture and politics.

I used to keep mine tucked in a breast pocket, There’s a lot you can use a phone for than just comms, so why wouldn’t he keep it on him?

I haven't noticed this option of trying to narrow down the impact area of MH370 being discussed on PPRuNe:

https://www.gbnews.com/news/world/mh...stigators-plan

Even if something was picked up on a hydrophone, I am puzzled about how the impact area could be established, unless multiple widely spread hydrophones detected the same thing and 'triangulation' might be possible?

Can anyone explain?

The article at this link by Usama Kadri seems far easier to follow than those in the previous two links (at post #547 & #548):

"Flight MH370: can underwater sound signals solve aviation’s greatest mystery?": https://theconversation.com/flight-m...mystery-230264

Yet it is a worry that it states: "Our latest research focused on the official and narrow time window. The analysis identified only one relevant signal in the direction of the seventh arc, recorded at the Cape Leeuwin station. But this signal was not detected at the Diego Garcia station."

If there are not already a pair of signals (at both Diego Garcia & Cape Leeuwin) that might correlate and allow for triangulation, then I wonder about the value of conducting "controlled explosions along the seventh arc"? Such tests seems more aimed at understanding the likely signal strength that should have been detected at both those hydrophone stations if MH370 impacted near the 7th arc than helping to narrow down a search area. Even so, the next uncertainty would be what size and nature of calibration blast would be needed to represent the unknown acoustic characteristics of the MH370 impact.

There is in the meantime much more discussion in the comments following the article link posted by ampclamp, but it was too much for me to work through, other than noting one post that challenges the previous analysis work undertaken by Kadri.

Addition: For anyone else interested in getting a sense of the geographic relationship between the hydrophone locations at Cape Leeuwin and Diego Garcia relative to a nominal impact area of MH370 of 34 deg S, 93 deg E I plotted this up on Google Earth as follows. Approximate distance from Cape Leeuwin to 34 deg S, 93 deg E is 1855 km while approximate distance from Diego Garcia to that location is 3755 km. The latter distance is more than double the former so on the face of it, it would make sense Diego Garcia hydrophone would have a harder time detecting a signal from the same location. I haven't tried to look up the exact locations of those hydrophones and how they might be obstructed from detecting a signal from the suspected Southern Ocean impact area. But heck, looking at the scale of what is being attempted with analysis here, they better be very high quality hydrophones and recordings!

Still using the term 'turned off' on the transponder!
