Dear friends of Wireless Messaging,

It is a great pleasure to report some important GOOD NEWS about Paging and Wireless Messaging for a change. The FCC has established the Commercial Mobile Service Alert Advisory Committee. This committee’s purpose is to develop and recommend technical standards, and protocols to facilitate the voluntary transmission of emergency alerts by the Commercial Mobile Service (CMS) providers. Stephen Oshinsky, respected chair of the Paging Technical Committee (PTC) has been selected to represent the AAPC and the paging industry as part of the FCC Committee. More details follow in the AAPC Bulletin section and in a Public Notice from the FCC.

Regular readers will recall that the US paging industry has been working diligently to gain visibility before the FCC—especially since Hurricane Katrina.

At first we were shocked when many “experts” were asked to testify before the FCC about the breakdown of communications during the hurricane and not one representative from the paging industry was on the list. After several of us complained, two of our industry leaders, Bruce Deer and Vince Kelly, were able to testify before the Hurricane Katrina committee. They did an excellent job and now Stephen Oshinsky will have an opportunity to tell the FCC that we can do it “better, faster, and cheaper” than any other technology AND we are already deployed.

In a special message to AAPC members yesterday, AAPC president, Bruce Deer said:

AAPC is extremely pleased to announce that Stephen M. Oshinsky, an AAPC board member and Chairman of the Paging Technical Committee, has been appointed by FCC Chairman Kevin J. Martin as the AAPC representative to serve on the Commercial Mobile Service Alert Advisory Committee (CMSAAC) established pursuant to Section 603 of the Warning, Alert and Response Network Act enacted on October 13, 2006. Martin will himself chair CMSAAC, which consists of 40 distinguished representatives of state, local and tribal governments; communications service providers; vendors, developers and manufacturers; third-party service bureaus; commercial and non-commercial broadcasters; individuals with special needs; and other technical representatives and interested parties. CMSAAC is charged with developing and recommending technical standards and protocols to facilitate the voluntary transmission of emergency alerts by Commercial Mobile Service providers; and its recommendations must be submitted to the FCC by October 12, 2007. The first meeting of CMSAAC will be held at the FCC on December 12, 2006.

Congratulations Stephen!

A reader in Ecuador needs some used paging equipment. He will accept shipment to Miami and will pay by bank transfer. Please let me know if you have any of the following:

  • Skydata 8466 sat receivers version A.
  • Skydata 8466 software for version B.
  • Motorola C-Net internal NIU

A couple of readers wrote in about the NBC TV show “30 Rock.”

Paging is getting significant airtime on the NBC show "30 Rock." One of the characters is the "Pager King," the last pager salesman in New York. It is very sad that paging has become the butt of a running gag.

I watched a re-run from their web site. The character, the “Pager King” is about the sorriest loser that you can imagine. In one scene, he is trying to sell pagers and says, “Business people need beepers” and “Beepers are going to make a comeback, technology is cyclical.” The response is, “No . . . business people need cell phones.” In another scene, a character is told to turn his beeper off. He replies, “No . . . I am expecting a call from 1983.” This is indeed sad.

Now on to more news and views.

The Voice of US Paging Carriers

Thank you for supporting AAPC in 2006, we look forward to working with you to promote your business in 2007!

AAPC Places Representative on FCC Communications Panel

The American Association of Paging Carriers greatly appreciates your participation and support. This has been a very productive year and AAPC has generated a tremendous amount of momentum in advancing the paging industry. With your participation, AAPC has provided a united front before the FCC to increase their knowledge of the reliability of paging communications during a crisis situation.

After the 9/11 attacks and the failure of communications systems immediately following Hurricane Katrina and Rita, the FCC created an independent panel focused on improving communications. AAPC President, Bruce Deer, and USA Mobility’s president, Vince Kelly testified about the dependability of paging before this panel. The panel made several comments in its recommendations that included paging as a solution.

In addition, as a result of the WARN Act, the FCC has established the Commercial Mobile Service Alert Advisory Committee. This committee’s purpose is to develop and recommend technical standards, and protocols to facilitate the voluntary transmission of emergency alerts by the Commercial Mobile Service (CMS) providers.

AAPC is pleased to announce that Stephen Oshinsky, an AAPC board member, has been appointed to represent the interests of the paging industry on this panel.

For those of you who do not know Stephen, he is Director of System Architecture for SkyTel Inc., a nationwide paging and narrowband personal communications service provider licensed under Parts 22 and 90 of the Commission’s rules. He also serves as Chairman of the Paging Technical Committee (PTC), a national engineering group dedicated to serving the technical needs of the paging industry.

With Stephen’s appointment our industry will be represented at the national level as the committee works to develop an emergency alerting communications systems. This will hopefully prove to benefit all of us in this industry as well as the public at large.

We will continue to keep our up-to-date on the committee’s activities as well as any other pertinent regulatory activities.

London 8th December 2006 – TH Communications, a wholly owned subsidiary of PageOne, the UK’s foremost supplier of wireless messaging technology and services has been appointed as the Authorised European Service Centre for Unication pagers. The announcement will see TH Communications manage all warranty repairs for Unication's European customers, and will establish TH Communications as Unication’s recommended European Service Centre for all paging repairs and refurbishments.

T-Mobile gets good marks in Consumer Reports survey

Tuesday, December 5, 2006

Readers of Consumer Reports ranked Bellevue's T-Mobile USA Inc. second in service quality in half the 16 major U.S. cities where it operates, the magazine said in its January issue.

The issue, containing rankings by 42,900 readers, reached many subscribers Friday.

T-Mobile, the nation's fourth-largest cellular carrier by number of subscribers, ranked first in Denver, San Diego and Seattle for uptime and freedom from static and dropped calls. It ranked third in five cities.

T-Mobile lost out most often to Verizon, the nation's largest carrier, which ranked first in 14 of the 20 cities in which it offers service and second in the other six.

No. 3 Cingular was rated third in 12 of the sampled 20 cities where it's active, with three second places, four fourth places and one fifth place.

Sprint ranked lowest, in fourth place in 12 of the 19 cities it serves. Alltel, another small carrier, beat out Verizon for first place in Cleveland, Phoenix and Tampa, Fla. — the only carrier aside from T-Mobile to score first-place slots.

As a group, the carriers still leave much to be desired, Consumer Reports editorialized.

They scored only 66 on a scale of 100 for overall satisfaction. Only 5 percent of respondents said they've given up a land line and rely exclusively on a cell phone.

Big Danish study says cell phones do not trigger cancer

The Associated Press Published: December 5, 2006

WASHINGTON: A huge study from Denmark offers the latest reassurance that cell phones do not trigger cancer.

Scientists tracked 420,000 Danish cell phone users, including 52,000 who had gabbed on the gadgets for 10 years or more, and some who started using them 21 years ago.

They matched phone records to the famed Danish Cancer Registry that records every citizen who gets the disease — and reported Tuesday that cell-phone callers are no more likely than anyone else to suffer a range of cancer types.

The study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, is the largest yet to find no bad news about the safety of cell phones and the radiofrequency energy they emit.

But even the lead researcher doubts it will end the debate.

"There's really no biological basis for you to be concerned about radio waves," said John Boice, a Vanderbilt University professor and scientific director of the International Epidemiology Institute. "Nonetheless, people are."

So Boice and colleagues at Copenhagen's Danish Cancer Society plan to continue tracking the Danish callers until at least some have used the phones for 30 years.

This so-called Danish cohort "is probably the strongest study out there because of the outstanding registries they keep," said Joshua Muscat of Pennsylvania State University, who also has studied cell phones and cancer.

"As the body of evidence accumulates, people can become more reassured that these devices are safe, but the final word is not there yet," Muscat added.

Cell phones beam radiofrequency energy that can penetrate the brain's outer edge, raising questions about cancers of the head and neck, brain tumors or leukemia. Most research has found no risk, but a few studies have raised questions. And while U.S. health officials insist the evidence shows no real reason for concern, they don't give the phones a definitive clean bill of health, either, pending long-term data on slow-growing cancers.

For the latest study, personal identification numbers assigned to each Dane at birth allowed researchers to match people who began using cell phones between 1982 and 1995 with cancer records.

Among 420,000 callers tracked through 2002, there were 14,249 cancers diagnosed — fewer than the 15,001 predicted from national cancer rates. Nor did the study find increased risks for any specific tumor type.

Martin Trying To Clear Way For McDowell To Vote On AT&T-BellSouth Merger

Business Week and other media report that FCC Chairman Kevin Martin last week asked the agency's general counsel to consider whether the government's interest would be served by permitting Commissioner Robert McDowell to vote on the proposed $81.6 billion merger between AT&T and BellSouth, according to a letter sent to members of the congressional committees that oversee the Commission. McDowell, one of three Republicans on the five-person commission, had recused himself because he is a former lobbyist for CompTel, a trade group that opposes the merger.

Without McDowell, the vote has been deadlocked at 2-2, with Martin and Republican Commissioner Deborah Tate favoring approval of the merger, and the two Democrats demanding that the companies offer additional concessions to ensure the merger does not harm consumers.

The Justice Department had approved the transaction on October 11, stating that there were no competitive concerns and deciding not to require a new combined company to divest any assets or make any other concessions. The proposed merger, the biggest in U.S. telecommunications history, also has been approved by regulators in 18 states, leaving the FCC as the final hurdle.

In his letter to the general counsel, Martin wrote, "Despite working for months to reach consensus with my colleagues, three attempts over the past six weeks to have this item considered at an open meeting, and countless hours of internal deliberations, the Commission has reached an impasse."

McDowell issued a short statement saying he looks forward to the general counsel's analysis "regarding my potential participation." However, McDowell indicated he plans to consult with the Virginia Bar if the FCC clears him to participate.

Commissioner Michael Copps said allowing McDowell to vote would be like "taking a mulligan" and "starting over with a changed set of players." He said the move would "create more problems than it resolves" and "short circuit discussions, and very likely shortchange consumers."

Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein said the decision "appears to be an effort to cut short the dialogue about measures to safeguard choice and competition for consumers and to promote affordable broadband services."

Also, Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), who is expected to chair the House subcommittee on telecommunications and the Internet next year, said it would be “extraordinary” to require McDowell to participate. Markey said McDowell should abstain from voting as a matter of principle, even if he is cleared by the general counsel.

Federal ethics regulations permit the FCC's general counsel to clear McDowell to vote as long as the "interest of the government in the employee's participation" outweighs any concerns about how the vote may affect the agency's integrity.

Nevertheless, McDowell would be in a difficult position because he would now be asked by Martin to approve a merger he previously opposed as a lobbyist for CompTel. And Martin faces a difficult challenge in approving the merger with conditions that will satisfy the Democrats who are taking control of both chambers of Congress.

If the FCC fails to approve the merger before the 110th Congress convenes in January, there likely will be hearings on the matter. And opponents of the deal will have a forum in which to seek additional concessions such as (1) placing caps on the rates that rivals have to pay to serve businesses using AT&T's local lines; and (2) forcing AT&T to divest unused spectrum unless it plans to use it.

ParkMagic and SkyTel to Deliver Nationwide Coverage in United States

Press Release posted by Michelle Ruhfass on Thursday December 07, 2006.

BURLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ — After a successful product launch in Europe in 2005 and as part of a continued international rollout, ParkMagic today announced the availability of its Mobile Parking Service (MPS) for on-street parking in cities across the United States.

ParkMagic has entered into a national agreement with SkyTel, a unit of Verizon Business, to deploy ParkMagic's innovative parking payment solution. This new payment technology for parking provides municipalities and private parking operators the ability to deliver parking convenience to the public and their private clients without the need for extensive capital expense. The ParkMagic solution is yet another example of the revolution in business delivery that is achieved through adopting wireless and mobile communications.

SkyTel will make available the ParkMagic solution to cities and private parking operators across the United States enabling the deployment of real- time in-car "pay and display" style parking payment without the need for meters, IT infrastructure or other capital costs. With this system, consumers — rather than dig for coins while parking on city streets -- can call into the ParkMagic system with their wireless phone to have their prepaid account debited for the amount of desired parking. A message is wirelessly sent over the SkyTel network to the in-car display that sits on the consumer's dash, letting officials know that parking has been paid.

"ParkMagic's in-car display system is a simple yet revolutionary technology," said Jim O'Connell, Director of Operations for ParkMagic in the United States. "The research data from previous deployments in Europe clearly demonstrates that motorists find it easy and convenient to use. A simple phone call will credit the display unit with the amount of time needed, saving motorists both time and effort."

"We're absolutely delighted," said Paul Fitzgerald, Chief Executive Officer of ParkMagic. "The on-street parking market in the United States is currently undergoing a revolution as older meters and mechanical devices are replaced with newer technologies. It's about convenience and cost -- convenience for the motorist and cost effectiveness for the city. In teaming with SkyTel, ParkMagic is now poised to provide millions of U.S. motorists the ability to effortlessly pay for parking without the need for cash and from the comfort of their own vehicle."

SkyTel President Bruce Deer said: "With this agreement, SkyTel is using its wireless capabilities to help our customers address everyday concerns. With this technology, consumers have another tool to address a daily challenge of having the right change for parking meters while we are helping cities to manage one of the more complex revenue sources."

SkyTel, a leading supplier of wireless data and messaging services, provides wireless internet access, wireless e-mail, interactive two-way messaging, wireless telemetry services, automatic vehicle location (AVL) products and traditional text and numeric paging to customers throughout the U.S. For additional information, go to

nighthawk logo





Nighthawk Systems Inc. manufactures low cost and reliable remote control products for fire house alerting, volunteer alerting, activation of warning signs and sirens, and a number of applications for public safety.  The Company manufactures the EA1 and the FAS-8 which have been designed specifically for these applications.  Both products are paging based and will work with any public or private paging network.  They are available in all VHF, UHF, and 900 MHz paging frequencies.  The products can serve as the primary notification system or an excellent, low-cost backup to existing systems.

Public Emergency Notification & Volunteer Alerting

The EA1 is the solution for remotely activating public warning signage.  Examples include tornado sirens, flash flood warnings, fire danger, Amber Alert, icy roads, etc.  The EA1 can also send text messages to scrolling signs.  This can occur in conjunction with the activation of audible alarms and visual strobes.  This is ideal for public notification in buildings, schools, hotels, factories, etc. The group call feature allows for any number of signs or flashing lights to be activated at the same time over a wide geographic area.  In addition, the EA1 Emergency Alert is the perfect solution for low cost yet highly effective alerting of volunteer fire fighters in their home.  When activated the EA1 will emit an audible alarm and activate the power outlet on the units faceplate.  A common setup is to simply place the EA1 on a table and plug a lamp into the faceplate.  When paged from dispatch or any touch tone phone the EA1 will awaken the fire fighter to a lit room.  As an option the EA1 can be ordered with a serial cable, allowing for attachment of a serial printer.  When paged the alphanumeric message will be printed out at the same time the alarm sounds and the outlet is activated.  The EA1 is an ideal complement to alphanumeric belt pagers common to volunteers.

nighthawk sign

Firehouse Automation

The FAS-8 is designed for activating one or more relays in a firehouse and if desired, printing the alphanumeric message to a serial printer.  For this application the FAS-8 is set to activate upon receiving the proper paging cap code sent from 911 dispatch.  Up to eight different devices can be activated all with individual time functions.  The most common devices to turn on include the PA amplifier, audible wake up alarm, and house lights.  The most common device turned off is the stove.  The FAS-8 can accept up to 8 different cap codes and have separate relay and time functions per cap code.  This allows for different alerting to be accomplished at the same physical location depending upon which cap code is sent.  This can be very helpful when fire crews and medical crews are housed in the same building.
