Cool Low Approach into Edinburgh EGPH

Hi All

Took advantage of a beautiful (but freezing) winter morning to conduct a low approach and go-around at Edinburgh Airport


Hope you enjoy!

Actually, publicly streaming all that ATC chatter is illegal in the UK.

seriously? It is all broadcasted on open bandwidth. Doesn’t make any sense to make it illegal!

Well in the UK it’s also illegal to listen to radio transmissions, unless they’re intended for you. Nobody has been prosecuted so it’s all a bit over the top, still definitely not recommended to distribute recordings of UK ATC transmissions.

Posted many years ago, but I doubt that the law has changed:-

Listening to UK ATC Communications : the law.

A clue to the pointlessness of the law on ATC talk and the unlikely chance of prosecution is that it falls under the 'Wireless Telegraphy Act.-Not a lot of telegraphy about these days although many people including those born after telegrams disappeared still refer to telegraph poles. Like the Official Secrets act, much more serious of course, Seldom used except in extreme circumstances but its there 'just in case' .

Probably because that's what the manufacturers of them call them ...

WHBM,

Amazing

Clearly the utility pole industry isnt into rebranding , product profiling , or any of the marketing and advertising fluff that dominates todays world . We could still have Horseless Carriages , Wireless Sets , and all kind of things.

On the same note , about how long things take to change , although i am going back 40 years to 1980s part of the village I lived in still had overhead phone lines in some roads although mist was underground by then. However one of the 'telegraph Poles had a rusty iron plate fixed near the top which read 'Persons must not throw stones at the Telegraphs VR'. As Queen Victoria died in 1901 the pole had to be at least 80 years old it probably explains why people dont throw money away but 're branding'.

In fact I wonder how many people today actually know what Telegraph means .
