Is Dash Charging A Worthy Feature For The OnePlus 3 Smartphone?

Published / by admin

If there is one weak spot of modern smartphones, it is the battery life. In relation to your phone use, the battery does not last as long between the charges and many people have embraced powerbanks to ensure that they remain connected throughout the day. But the one good point about a smartphone is that they charge relatively fast. This can be attributed to the fact that most come with fast charging technologies. The Qualcomm Quick Charge is supported by a number of recent phones by LG, Samsung, Moto and HTC.

Dash charge is the new fast charging solution that is available for the OnePlus 3 smartphone. The charging solution offers a day’s charge or power in as short as half an hour. It simply means that you would need only 30 minutes to replenish 2/3 of your smartphone’s battery capacity and this is indeed very remarkable.

Understanding dash charge

A Lithium ion battery is what is used in modern smartphones. Lithium as a chemical is highly reactive and light, making the cells weigh less, but at the same time store large energy amounts that are relative to their volume. The batteries however, require proper handling because the element can be

Radio Broadcasting’s Vital Role in Emergencies

Published / by admin

Radio broadcasting has a long history; one that goes beyond Tesla, Marconi and Armstrong, and it includes advances in communication and technology, as explained by Radio magazine. Some of the important dates from radio’s past are covered on the AmericanRadioHistory.com website. There, one can read about the earliest forms of radiotelegraphy systems.

In fact, early 1920s marks an important date in time of radio telegraph communication: In that time, the basis of public radio network broadcasting and even early TV programming were provided: Scientists were experimenting in 1925 with TVs, to include video content disseminated via radio transmissions on designated channels to a dispersed audience.

Early audio transmission set in motion AM broadcasting on a radio station. To overcome the interference problems of AM radio, stations began to use FM radio in the 1930s as its band provided a more clear-cut audio sound through the air as radio waves from a transmitter to an antenna. It was not until the 2000s that Americans were introduced to digital radio and direct broadcasting by satellite (DBS).

By the 1930s, radio broadcasting and television broadcasting (telecasting) was an integral part of the American way of life.

In the previous decade, the 1920s, early amateur radio transmitted

Common Features and Uses of a Directional Antenna Phasing Cabinet

Published / by admin

One of the key components of a directional antenna system, involving a receiving or transmitting aerial device that converts electric power into radio waves and vice versa, is the phasing equipment (aka the phasor cabinet). This system is highly used in directional AM Stations and in the medium wave (AM) frequency band, as it allows the strengthening of the signal in a particular direction and reduces the interference to stations located in other directions that are not desired. It’s possible, in fact, to set the degree of directivity of the antenna’s radiation pattern, which is controlled by the amplitude and phase weights of each individual element.

To assure maximum accuracy and stability, the phasing equipment is used. The phasor manages the power that is sent to each antenna tower in a system. The phasor cabinet holds tuning coils, vacuum/cast mica capacitors, inductors, RF contactors and variable junctions of circuitry connected to the other components; it is all housed in the cabinet where someone can do most of the adjustments (on the front panel’s control knobs) to increase the coverage area or achieve the best antenna gain (beamwidth) and path, or nullify interference.

A phasor can even help fix small transmission problems.

Stay Connected At Sea With Maritime Satellite

Published / by admin

All of us like to stay connected with the rest of the world for various reasons. It is for safety, socializing or communication purposes. We have a lot of options on land to stay connected, but most of these do not work on sea. The network works only for a few kilometers near the shore. This is where a maritime satellite network comes into the picture.

Maritime satellite offers ways to stay connected on sea with other fleet members or with people on land at a reasonable rate. The International Maritime Organisation (IMO), a UN body, set up the International Maritime Satellite Organization (Inmarsat) as a nonprofit organization. The main aim of setting up Inmarsat was to give a satellite network for communication between vessels. This would give a great opportunity to find and save ships in distress. Over the years, the organization became private and began serving commercial fleets with means to stay connected on sea. Slowly other companies like Iridium and Globalstar also launched maritime satellite networks.

Services like voice calling, email, internet access and information related to weather and fishing they offer on a maritime satellite network. Apart from these regular services, some vessels also use it to
