I’m with you johhny, except the shock collars definitely need to be shock and AWE collars for our jihadi friends.
My 5.8ghz cordless phone works fine around corners. If I wanted to blow something up with it, I could easily do so while taking cover behind a wall or around a corner.
Of course, an infrared controller might be another matter. But the toy car controllers use RF and have a range of a hundreds of feet. Perfect for the application.
BTW, the AQ Chef's article does not cover this type of detonator. Rather, it contains detailed instructions for building the old stand-by clock detonator:
Your talking very complicated design. Could the two brothers have figured that complex design on their own? I bet not.
Not if JRanomFreeper is right and I’m thinking he is. The controller design was done by the the Toy manufacturer and the adaption to the pressure cooker bomb really isn’t that hard. You have to assume that the bomb design using the toy controller was figured out by some clever Jihadist and the Mad Bombers just put theirs together like a Heathkit.
I thought the receiver was identified as a 2.4 Ghz unit from a hobby-grade R/C helicopter (I own similar). If so, the DSM-X or DSM-2 receiver is bound to a particular transmitter and is almost invulnerable to common modes of interference or jamming.
Just How Good is DSMX? In multiple tests, 100 DSMX systems were operated simultaneously for extended periods of time. During these tests each of the 100 systems was monitored in flight and on the ground. In every test not a single case of RF link loss, latency increase or control degradation was experienced or recorded.
If that's true, and I hadn't heard that, then yes, it's very doable. Not quite as dangerous as the 47MHz receiver, and much more reliable.
For my Raptor Tiger helicopter, I'm using a Futaba 50MHz radio, but I had to send them a copy of my FCC license before they would send it to me.
I wanted a frequency that others on the field wouldn't have.
That sounds plausible. Different frequencies and / or one bomb blows up on turn-left and the other on turn-right. Each brother places and triggers his own bomb. That way, they can be sure to be far enough away. And they coordinate via cell phone (one of them was videoed on the phone right before a bomb went off).
This particular chef was cooked by a Hellfire missile sometime later.
One of the pressure cooker lids was found on the roof of a six-story hotel.
I haven’t read the comments here, yet, but I recall seeing video on FNC of a man on the roof of a building across the street. At the time, no one knew who he was... and they apparently still don’t know. ......That “perch” would have provided him line-of-sight to both IEDs.
why? while walking away they push the remote control. not that hard and no need for a 3rd person. The 2nd bomb went off 10 seconds after suspect #1 walked away
Maybe that's why the bombs were set towards the end of the marathon, there were less people, and they move. It was just a matter of timing when that one person would move to allow a direct line.
That looks like the Chinese lady killed, next to the “Saudi” with the black jacket and shades.
They might be mixing up "line of sight" with "needed to be fairly close".
“Im thinking puffy coat man is wearing a disguise.. And pushing a stroller? Yikes.”
I have zoomed-in closeups of what’s inside that stroller, and it’s not a baby.
I posted them last week but the Mods put me on “double secret probation” and described my images as “infowars” style.
If PUFFY COAT and his partner BENDING MAN (whose face we never see b/c always bent over digging thru stroller) aren’t suspicious, then I don’t think the word “suspicious” has any meaning.
“Were there actually any Saudis running in the race?
How come there were so many Saudi spectators there?”
The Saudis were supposedly there to “watch the Kenyan runners.”
Only 1 problem with that: The Kenyan runners were boycotting/protesting the race and thus didn’t run.
If anybody can explain to me what Alharbi (Saudi “student” on terrorist watch list) was doing 50 feet from an explosion at one of the biggest terrorist attacks in 10 years, I’m all ears.
I’m sure it was just coincidence, folks. That’s what Eric Holder told me over falafel.
