UFO Buster Radio News – 342: Drone Mass Hysteria & Starlink For Australians
The Colorado Mystery Drones Weren’t Real
The mysterious drone sightings that captured national attention were a classic case of mass hysteria.
On the night of December 30, Sergeant Vince Iovinella of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department in rural Colorado was on patrol when the calls started coming in about drones.
“Residents began calling in reports of drones of unknown origin moving above houses and farms,” Iovinella wrote in a statement obtained by Motherboard via a public records request. “The numbers would range from 4 to 10 drones in an area at a time. Some were reported to be low and at least 6 ft. long.”
Iovinella further reported the drones had white and red flashing lights as he and other deputies made “several attempts” to follow the drones. The drones were moving “very fast at times” but could also “sustain a hover over an area for long periods of time.”
“There were many sighting’s [sic] coming in and at the same time,” Iovinella continued. “It is believed that there could have been up to 30 drones moving around the county if not more and appeared to be working in a search pattern across the county.”
Matters kicked into high gear after a medical helicopter reported on January 8 to have flown dangerously close to a drone in the same general area. More than 70 local, state, federal, and military officials jumped into action, convened in a small town called Brush, Colorado, and formed a joint drone task force of 10 to 15 different government agencies to solve the mystery.
On January 13, the Colorado Department of Public Safety (CDPS) issued a statement about their investigation into the mysterious drone sightings in question. CDPS “confirmed no incidents involving criminal activity, nor have investigations substantiated reports of suspicious or illegal drone activity.” In other words, they found nothing.
Of the 23 reports between January 6 and January 13 when the investigation was underway, 13 were determined to be “planets, stars, or small hobbyist drones.” Six were commercial aircraft, and four remain unconfirmed. None of the 90 reports from November 23 onward were confirmed instances of illegal drone activity.
The Colorado non-incident adds yet another instance of drone hysteria to the record books, which has been documented by a white paper published by drone manufacturer DJI and a study by the Academy of Model Aeronautics which found only 27 out of 764 reports of drone sightings by aircraft pilots were legitimate near misses.
“While I can’t conclusively say we have solved the mystery, we have been able to rule out a lot of the activity that was causing concern,” Stan Hilkey, Colorado Department of Public Safety executive director, told the Denver Post even though it sure sounded like they had solved the mystery. “We will continue to remain vigilant and respond as new information comes in.”
Elon Musk’s Starlink Given the Thumbs Up To Save Australia’s Internet.
Australia’s terminally bungled National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout has become a meme. And not a good one. Sure we are above the threshold of most underdeveloped countries and we can see how this can be labelled ‘first world problems’
In 2009, the then Labor government promised a fast National Broadband Network (NBN) with optical fibre cables direct to most homes and businesses.
•Internet data consumption has increased by 20-30 per cent each year
•The average Australian home has 17 devices connected to the internet
•NBN due for completion in 2020
•Fewer than one in four FTTN connections expected to be able to achieve top speeds
Instead, we’ve ended up with a mix of technologies including optical fibre, copper wires, Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC), fixed wireless and satellite.
However, as a developed nation we are behind schedule. Only now, a decade after the initial NBN rollout is the service being provided in MOST urban areas of our country.
