Fox News: Does line-of-sight detonation method suggest third marathon bomber? [video]
Twitchy ^

Posted on 04/26/2013 3:55:59 PM PDT by Perdogg

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge is reporting today that the FBI has not ruled out the possibility of a third party involved in the Boston Marathon terrorist bombing. Evidence that the two bombs were detonated not by a cell phone but by parts ripped from a toy car remote control suggest that whoever triggered the explosions had to have been in the line of sight of the bombs.

I’ve been wondering about the actual detonation scenario my own self.

Aren't the toy cars in the 47-49MHz range? That's hardly line of sight like 1.2Ghz.

Just take a guess what the Saudi student/terrorist (the one the Obamas are protecting) was doing at the scene of the bombings......

After he somehow sustained burns when one of the bombs went off, why was his frst reaction to run AWAY from the nearby medical aid station?

Using such a remote control would be pretty “risky” in the sense of premature detonation due to the presence of other radio signals in the area.

Always believed the Saudi National was involved..but Obama was too quick to get him out of the country since he’s a big shot in the Saudi royal family..Obama has to protect his Muslim “brothers”

March 6, 2007, Nicholas D. Kristof New York Times interview:
He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.

I doubt they were smart enough to even think about stray signals.
But at some point in the process
...(think of the pictures of them in the area, dropping the back packs, and walking away)...
they had to pause long enough to trigger the detonations.

I have insisted since day one that there are two other parties of two that need to identified and questioned. The 'coach' with the bulging backpack and the man with possibly a full-face disguise wearing a bloated down jacket.

These two:

And these two (one is wearing a bloated down jacket and possibly pushing a cart or stroller, the other bending over):

The Asian woman at far left in center photos is possibly the Chinese woman who was killed in the blast.

Strong possibility that more than two bombs were planned and someone backed out of the mission.

One of the bombs was placed on the ‘race side’ of the crowd fence which mean the guy with the switch would be on the opposite side of the race course. If the line-of-sight requirement then there is Atleast one more terrorist

The guy to the right in the blue shirt turns up often in several pictures from the race. I think he could possibly be the one in the far left standing with all the royalty in the park, next to the one with the gink arm that has been talked about before the arrests.

If so, you are correct. No line of sight requirement. In any case the triggering mechanism would need an external antenna and a feed - through capable of holding the pressure. That can be done, of course, but you need to know what you are doing. Could be the plans they were following make provision for that.

Yes. They would have needed to add an external antenna and a pressure proof feed through to utilize any sort of radio control.

With just a tight-fit hole for the wire, intertial containment would have been enough for the few milliseconds of the event.

Yes, but an external antenna, especially for the 6 to 8 meter band is simple to add.

I just pulled out my pressure cooker and a piece of 26 ga magnet wire (varnish insulation) and put it between the lid and the pot under the rubber gasket, and it sealed right up.

No short between the metal pot and wire. I put a meter on it to measure it.

I only took it to 30 PSI with the air compressor through the vent.

I should can some tamales while I've got the pressure cooker out, and get rid of the pork in the fridge.

.... Just a thought but with this new info isn’t it possible that the known perps then would have had to be the ones planting the devices on one side heading up the sidewalk. While at the same time because of the distance between the two incidents and considering the bombs detonated merely seconds apart, the short range of the remotes would dictate that there would have had to be two other people with remotes operating on the other side of the street/race course.

This entire property is a Darwin Test disguised as a science project. My grandsons love it. When they are allowed in under very, very close guard.

There are rules, and I've made it this far. I do use gauges, pressure relief valves, &ct...

I pity the grandchild that can't do his sums, though.

Not really. I've done QRP on 6 meters (50mw at 50.080Mhz) over 3 miles.

And one frequency can carry enough information to trigger two events at different times without one triggering the other.

The signal is about 7 meters long, or 21 ft. It's like a wave in the ocean. It bends around stuff. You'd have to get to 1.2GHz to get bodies blocking the signal.

The frequency a little lower than the old television channels, if they used a toy car for the radios.

.... Just a note about the detonations ... They occurred about 300Ft (90 meters) and apart 10-12 seconds apart ..... still quite a distance.

That doesn't apply at 186,000 miles per second.

I would guess, if they really did use toy car radios, that they either picked two with different frequencies, or tweaked the frequencies, or used the PCM (Pulse Coded Modulation) of the signal to detonate the two at different times. Think right/left, go/stop functions on a toy car. That's 3 active functions at a minimum.

Or just used on signal with a delay, intentional or not, on one of the bombs.

What I'm saying is that technically, I could cause a remote event using toy car radios a block away, and time them however I wanted.

I certainly wouldn't want to do that to innocent civilians, but if you want to set up a test, get a spot of desert, and some jihadis, and I'll make their shock collars go off from a couple of hundred meters away.

How many muslims lived in the line of sight of the explosion?
