According to FAA spokes(wo)man, 'Safety was never compromised' and 'anything running 24/7 is bound to have some occasional problems'.
Does anyone else see a problem here? They lost 30% of their freqs. due to a car accident!
Any system that runs 24/7 and has the safety of lives at it's forefront should have at LEAST one stand alone backup system, not the main and backup through the same line!
Reference the controller in Ireland using his cell phone, here in the states, we'd get in trouble even having ours turned on while in a control room! There, he's a hero. Here, he'd be reprimanded.
So, are you ready to fill out that job application yet!?
