Belfort Instrument Company PHUCKING DigiWx AWOS

    Belfort Instrument Company is selling to a known terrorist country as
    evidenced by mention of the DigiWx AWOS on their corporate homepage
    sold to:

    Pakistan
    -Lahore International Airport (LHE/OPLA) RVR System, Lahore Pakistan


    And then there is word of this:
    During the first two weeks of January 2007, U.S. air strikes targeted
    four sites in southern Somalia formerly under al Qaida control where
    terrorists have been training and hiding for months.


    "As we speak now, the area is being bombarded by the American air
    force," a Somali government official told Reuters two weeks ago.


    The U.S. attacks targeted an area close to Ras Kamboni, a coastal
    village near the Kenyan border where many Islamists are believed to
    be hiding after being ousted by Ethiopia-backed government forces,
    the official added.


    Four places were hit -- Hayo, Garer, Bankajirow and Badmadowe, the
    source said. "Bankajirow was the last Islamist holdout. Bankajirow
    and Badmadowe were hit hardest," he added.


    The Pentagon confirmed only one air strike that took place in the
    south of the country, saying that it was part of a wider offensive
    aimed at an al-Qaeda cell that includes suspects in the 1998 bombings
    of U.S. embassies in east Africa and a hotel in Kenya.


    Meanwhile, ABC News quoted U.S. and French military sources as saying
    that American U.S. special forces were working with Ethiopian troops
    on the ground in operations inside Somalia.


    Following a thrust by the U.S. military, U.S. special forces
    discovered a Belfort Instruments Digiwx AWOS weather reporting system
    on a hill south of Ras Kamboni.


    The Belfort Instruments Digiwx AWOS station was not operational as
    it had suffered a direct military hit from an explosion of unknown
    origin. But the Digiwx name could be clearly seen imprinted on the 15
    foot tower which now lays on it side in pieces.


    U.S. troops subsequently uncovered handheld Digiwx weather receivers
    in two of the camps previoulsy occupied by al-Qaeda terrorists which
    apparently had been left behind and abandoned.


    How the Belfort Instruments Digiwx AWOS system made it to Somalia and
    into terrorists hands is still unknown. Whether al-Qaeda and Osama
    bin-Laden organizations are employing Digiwx AWOS units in other
    parts of the world is currently unknown.


    U.S. troops have been advised to be on the lookout for additional
    Digiwx AWOS units under Al-Qaeda and/or Sunni/Shiite control in Iraq
    and Afghanistan.


    U.S. special forces are reportedly monitoring the two known wireless
    frequencies that Digiwx AWOS transmits on, notably 464.6 and 464.75
    MHz. British military sources report that signals on both frequencies
    have been detected but only occasionally as the terrorists seem to be
    running Belfort Instruments Digiwx for only short periods of time.


    Belfort Instrument Company (Baltimore, MD, USA), the original
    manufacturer of Digiwx AWOS, has had no comment.


    Why would an American company be "aiding and abetting" known
    terrorists organizations around the world while doing business in
    pursuit of the almighty American dollar? Maybe you would want to
    contact them and find out why:

    Much has been written about Belfort Instrument Company's
    DigiWx AWOS anonymously for good reason because the Belfort
    DigiWx "fur" has been flying since at least 2005. One can
    find mention of Belfort's inferior weather station named
    DigiWx AWOS as witnessed by:


    Ten reasons to NOT buy Belfort DigiWx AWOS (keep reading)
    http://www.aviationkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/piloting/5041


    I also am of the belief that Belfort Instrument Company has
    been actively censoring anyone and any words which dishes
    dirt on this inferior DigiWx AWOS weather station.


    Now we have word from Belfort Instrument Company of
    a "Recommended Service Bulletin" dated April 21, 2011
    and numbered 2011-1.


    SUBJECT: Unicom Transmission


    MODELS AFFECTED: Belfort DigiWx AV100 with
    either Technisonic or ICom radios


    TIME OF COMPLIANCE: At owners discretion


    There have been some discussions by users at congested
    airports of not being able to receive the AWOS broadcast
    over the Unicom or the weather report stepping on other
    Unicom communications. The following suggest may decrease
    the problem.


    1. On the DigiWx radio, set the squelch well above
    the squelch break point this, in turn requires more
    power to break the squelch which means traffic has to be
    closer to the airport to receive the weather report.


    2. The DigiWx standard broadcast mode is using 3 MIC
    clicks. At busy airports, there isn t a way for the
    DigiWx to determine if someone is clicking the MIC 3
    times for the weather or three (3) separate pilots are
    clicking the MIC to talk. If this is the case, it might
    help to change the number of MIC clicks for weather to
    5 MIC clicks. Both of the above recommendations will
    help reduce the number of broadcasts from the DigiWx
    and they are easy to do and don t cost money.

    Well, I fly from one of the airports in MT with one
    of these DigiWx AWOS pieces of SHIT. And its beyond me
    to understand why changing the mic clicks at a congested
    airport is going to fix the problem of a DigiWx which
    clogs the UNICOM frequency. Just like Belfort said,
    DigiWx cannot distinguish who is clicking the mic 3
    times. The DigiWx is stupid. When it hears any 3 mic
    clicks, it activates and clogs an already congested
    UNICOM frequency. We pointed this out to Belfort 3
    years ago and THIS WAS AND CONTINUES TO BE THEIR FIX?


    If I cut thru the emotion of everything ever written
    about the Belfort Instrument Company DigiWx AWOS, I
    am now a believer. Belfort doesn't know the first
    phucking thing about designing an AWOS to broadcast
    over a UNICOM frequency. I have talked with numerous
    pilots from other airports who have the SuperAWOS
    and the Vaisala AWOS. And they just DON'T have these
    clogged frequency problems.


    Yep, you read that right:
    BUY Belfort Instruments DigiWx-SHIT... Have a PILE OF SHIT guaranteed!


    Have you heard about the Meadow Lake Airport AWOS Fiasco?
    Quoting, http://meadowlake-airport.com/AWOS.htm reads in short:


    "Executive Conclusion: Of the four candidate AWOS manufacturers, only
    two meet the threshold and objective system performance levels. These
    are systems provided by All Weather Inc (AWI) and Vaisala. The
    SuperAWOS by Potomac Aviation does not pass an initial cut due to
    maintenance problems encountered with their SuperUnicom installed at
    Meadow Lake airport."


    "The Belfort DigiWX "AWOS" is not a true FAA fully commission-able
    AWOS. Its complete sensor suite is not certified. Installation of this
    system at 00V means that we would not have our weather data (METAR)
    accessible in the federal database which means that Flight Service and
    other sites such as ADDS, XM weather, WSI, etc would not not have
    Meadow Lake weather data. The only certified weather info would be
    altimeter and visibility. While this does allow Part 91 and 135
    instrument approaches, the inability to incorporate its complete METAR
    data in the federal system is a deal-breaker."


    "The apparent initial cost savings of the initial Belfort DigiWX
    acquisition is minimal and not worth the lack of functionality and
    usefulness to the national aviation community. Life-cycle cost of the
    Belfort system over 15 years is over $27,000 higher than the Vaisala
    system."


    "It would not allow us to transition to a three letter airport
    identifier."


    "Bottom line is that the Belfort system represents false economy,
    minimal pilot usefulness and is inconsistent with providing the
    aviation community services that make this airport attractive to
    current and future pilots and businesses."


    "Of the remaining systems offered by AWI and Vaisala, Vaisala is the
    preferred system."

    Now have a LQQK at this.....


    Ron Lee from Meadow Lake Airport wrote in Pike's Peak Flyer:
    January 2009


    The SuperUnicom was shut down in early August 2008 due to
    harmful interference on the 122.7 MHz frequency A grant was
    submitted and approved to get an AWOS III P/T using FAA funds.
    Our portion of the cost is around $4,000 although incidentals
    may drive it higher... but far below the $25,000 previously
    budgeted for an AWOS. One MLAA Board member is attempting to
    force a system that is not fully certified down our throats
    using the flawed rationale that it is cheaper that the fully
    certified systems offered by All Weather Inc and Vaisala. A
    major down side to the Belfort system is that pilots will not
    be able to access METAR data through Flight Service, ADDS, on
    their on-board weather systems, etc. We will very likely be
    unable to acquire a three letter airport ID and maintenance
    will cost much more over its lifetime than with either of the
    fully certified systems. Plus in its current implementation,
    there is no obvious upgrade path to getting present weather
    and lightning information available in an AWOS III P/T system.
    It is crucial to the safety of this airport and our usefulness
    as a destination airport within the National Airspace System
    that we get a state of the art AWOS. With the FAA grant, it is
    amazingly affordable. But it is essential that local pilots
    become informed on this matter and contact all Board members
    to express their view. My opinion... based upon extensive
    research on behalf of MLAA members... is that we need a fully
    certified AWOS. The minimum configuration is AWOS III, with
    AWOS III P/T highly desirable (objective). It needs to be the
    number one priority acquisition with a target installation not
    later than Spring 2009. It must not be sacrificed to pay
    interest on the land acquisition.

    Following up on the post regarding the UN-APPROVED, UN-
    CERTIFIED and UN-OFFICIAL weather data spewed by Belfort
    Digiwx AWOS, one also needs to note that they only sold 2
    units during all of 2011.

    About Belfort Instrument Company:
    Belfort used to be a leading provider of weather instruments
    to the government, professional meteorology and aviation
    markets. Key words: "use to be." They never provided any wind
    sensors to the Wright Brothers despite their fantastic
    assertion that they did! Historical archives available at the
    U.S. Air Force National Museum (1100 Spaatz Street, Wright-
    Patterson AFB, OH 45433) tells a very different story and
    specifically mentions a "Richards" anemometer which Wilbur
    Wright held as pictured
    at: "http://wings.avkids.com/Book/Wright/history1_19012.html".
    The Belfort aerovane wind system on U.S. Naval aircraft
    carriers are currently being replaced with ultrasonic wind
    sensors from QPI (11207 Single Oak Road, Fredericksburg, VA
    22407) which just won a $94 million dollar contract for the
    Moriah Wind System. Belfort wind speed and direction
    anemometers found on the ASOS platform are now being
    replaced with ultrasonic sensors from the Vaisala Group.
    Belfort Instruments Model 6000 visibility sensor will no
    longer be a part of the U.S. Air Force's OS-21/FSB program
    come early 2007. And despite a $500,000 U.S. government
    grant from NASA's Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS)
    program in 2004 to build a low-cost ceilometer, Belfort
    didn't possess the technical smarts nor the engineering
    know-how to accomplish the task. So now they're importing
    the Eliasson CBME 80A laser ceilometer from Muir Matheson.
    As one can readily see, Belfort is no longer setting any
    standards of measurement in the weather instrumentation
    world. And now Belfort is propagating lie after lie about
    their fabled company history while trying to steal
    thunder from the accomplishments of the Wright Brothers.
    According to the National Museum of American History (12th
    Street and Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20560),
    Belfort founder Julian Friez never made it to Baltimore to
    set up shop until sometime in the 1890s even though Belfort
    officials fraudulently claim the company was founded in 1876.
    Thus, there was no 125th anniversary for Belfort to
    celebrate in 2001 even though they hosted a party to which
    no one came! Belfort's proclamation that it is the "Oldest
    Weather Company in the World" is simply yet another Belfort
    lie as Thomas Romney Robinson invented the first wind
    anemometer in 1846, six years before Julian Friez was born
    in 1852. Belfort doesn't even know it's own company history
    so they just make it up! You should wonder what other crap
    (eg. Digiwx AWOS) they also make up! For more information

    big black mamba! Imediatelzly, my blacks a mamba becomes engorged
    with hot burstz of human excitementz. With a big tugz with both of
    herz handz, Ellen H. Robinson pluckz me black mamba to a full
    erctionz! she then opened herz mouthz and slipsz it over my full
    manhoodz. she gagz and coughz a bit but begins her suckin action
    upz and downz! she repeatedlyz goez faster and faster untilz i
    feelz my venemouz black mamba release a massive explozion into
    herz mouth. At first, she triyz to swallow it allz but my venomouz
    fluidz keepz jaculating in herz mouthz. Then, she pullz herz head
    awayz with herz handz still clenched on my black mamba. she coughz
    and gagz a minute over the concretes but then placez herz lips back
    on myz black mamba. Once aginz, she jerks it hard withz both handz.
    Again, I'z begin to release a strong venemouz fluid at a fullz flow
    into herz small mouth. Myz black mamba squirmz in herz handz as i
    release all of my venemous fluid from myz snake into herz mouthz.
    i'z kannotz waitz til my neighbor Ellen H. Robinson sneaks back
    over to my house for somz afternoonz delight. Next timz, me thinks

    andz give her zome my brotherly love. Myz black mamba has neverz
    felt so good after Ellen H. Robinson wrapped herz lipz around the
    big headz on meez mamba!
