Why Do Secret Service Agents Still Wear Those Curly Earpieces?

Posted

You'd consider that the U . s . FBI (being the United states secret service and all) would have access to an earpiece a little cooler that just the standard 'curly cable' job, wouldn't you?

If forced, We have to say that I tend to imagine some old fella, like Desmond Llewelyn in the Bond movies, (and even a younger model like Ben Whishaw from 'Skyfall') making all the devices himself and then explaining them to the agents before they go out and guard the President's life.

This is simply not the case. They use the models they use as they work plus they work well. Basically, wired models are still more dependable than their wireless counterparts. With wireless, you tend to get more interference, as well as having to deal with more restricted bandwidth. Essentially, you'll need reliable tech when you're in the field. Lives are at stake in some cases.

This straightforward, trusted earpiece might be relied upon to accomplish the job, every time.

Another benefit that wired earpieces have over wireless ones (on this example, at the least) may be the proven fact that a wired set needn't carry an extra battery. Wireless earphones would need charging and, as a result, would have a somewhat limited operational capacity. It just causes a lot more headaches for individuals who, let's face it, already have a fair bit on their plates to start with.

According to 'AskJeeves.com'

"The ear piece and mic that the secret service uses is called a Throat Mic. The Throat Mic has clarity that is unsurpassed, great sound quality, and allows for discreet interaction. It also has an acoustic air tube that makes it comfortable when worn for long periods of time".

The 'curly earpiece' tech is actually rather common and has been utilized by a number of individuals and businesses beyond the secret service. You are able to even buy a wireless version, but don't expect the FBI to be interested!

I might argue another point, but this is just a pet theory with little or no research to back it up. Psychologically speaking, when y'see a secret service agent, you identify them as such without seeing them in any form of uniform (beyond a suit, shades and an earpiece), the earpiece, then, is a subtle reminder to, the civilian, that not only is this not a regular person inside a suit, but additionally that the area in which you now end up is being closely monitored.

With one remark to his/her earpiece, the agent in question can almost certainly call down many of the other agents in the immediate area, also as police, fire brigade and anybody else he/she believes is essential. That subtle reminder is likely a very powerful crime deterrent. No guns need to be displayed, no helmets or flak jackets worn and yet you know that this person has eyes all over the place and will, probably, actually ruin your week. As I said, it's just a hypothesis, but I think it makes sense.

THE SHIFT TO DIGITAL, why NASCAR choose Motorola

Posted

NASCAR officials have enthusiastically embraced MOTOTRBO, and they applaud the benefits it has brought to the NASCAR experience. Smooth Management of Communications Traffic MOTOTRBO "does a super job for us," according to Kerry Tharp, Director of Communications, NASCAR. "You have to communicate pre-race, during the race, and most importantly for us, post-race because when the race is over, that's when our media operation kicks in for us full-bore. We bring in our top three drivers for interviews; we bring in our winning driver to the victory lane, and we also check in on the garage to make sure that post-race is going along as it should. We have to make sure we're communicating quickly and concisely. Through MOTOTRBO, we're able to do our jobs a whole lot better than we have in the past."

A Clear Road for Communications Digital provided a measurable improvement over NASCAR's old system, which sometimes had a slower response time. "MOTOTRBO has taken NASCAR to a whole new level." Steve Lowery, Chief Scorer, NASCAR, explains, "With the old system, there was a lot of interference. Sometimes you couldn't hear at all because of static. With MOTOTRBO, it's much clearer."

Consistency and Reliability

You'd Expect from a Winner According to David Hoots, Managing Event Director, NASCAR, one of the most important benefits is "extended battery life because some of our days are extremely long. We have to be able to communicate consistently and reliably. MOTOTRBO has done a super job for us." Hoots adds that MOTOTRBO is the first step toward an even more comprehensive communications system: "We took the opportunity to start with a very solid foundation and we will grow with the capabilities the radios offer. With a digital system, we're going to reap the benefits for years to come." " With the old system, there was a lot of interference. Sometimes you couldn't hear at all because of static. Now, with MOTOTRBO, it's much clearer."

Robust Enough for the Toughest Environments The NASCAR study, Hoots recalls, determined that the organization needed "one clear and uninterrupted communication system, and because we move from venue to venue, we're faced with a big challenge." The robust, durable and adaptable MOTOTRBO system was able to move from here location to location - over 56 events every year, almost every month of the year - for quick deployment and certain performance. "Reliability," says Hoots, "is of utmost importance. We cannot have a product that is going to fail. We must have the most robust system possible, so MOTOTRBO is the right system for us." According to Michael Helton, President, NASCAR, "Fans have become interested in the entertainment aspect of listening in, so we still want an analogue system going out for fans who still use analog radios." The ability of MOTOTRBO to support digital and analogue communications made it the perfect selection for

this blended environment that had to accommodate fans in the stands who want to scan for instant updates using older analog radios.

Twice the Capacity

MOTOTRBO is able to manage large numbers of radios by utilizing TDMA - time division multiple

access - which divides the channel into time slots for greater spectrum efficiency. TDMA enables each single repeater to do the work of two repeaters for enhanced call management with private, group, and system-wide calling capability. Digital Means Clarity MOTOTRBO supports audio quality with digital clarity and noise-canceling technology so that everyone is able to connect with one another and communicate more efficiently. MOTOTRBO radios contain a digital signal processor (DSP) that fine-tunes the audio. When a user connects an IMPRES intelligent audio accessory to a MOTOTRBO radio, the accessory provides the radio's DSP with a unique set of audio parameters to shape the microphone and speaker frequency responses, ensuring the maximum clarity, volume, and intelligibility of each communication. " Fans have become interested in the entertainment aspect of listening in, so we still want an analog system going out for fans who still use analog radios."

Batteries Go Farther on a Single Charge MOTOTRBO is able to maintain consistent, reliable communications. All digital radios provide improved battery life, and because TDMA digital systems

utilize batteries more efficiently, users have received up to 18 hours of operation after quick-charging a standard nickel metal hydride battery. Talk-time is now extended and personnel spend less time returning to base to recharge their radios or pick up fresh batteries.



Robust Enough to Take on the Road

One key advantage of MOTOTRBO is that it's designed to be packed up, moved to a new location and set up, only to be taken down days later and moved again. To withstand that kind of constant use, a radio has to be strong, and MOTOTRBO has proven to be very strong, robust, and durable.

Who Uses a Spy Earpiece?

Posted

British comedian Jack Dee probably said it best, "Men like to use drills because secretly, we think they're guns". Tools just bring out our inner 007.

He's right. Men like gadgets for the same reason. We can't deny it, there's just something unassailably cool about a tool that you can use, but that no one else knows about.

Whether you're prancing around your house pointing a Black & Decker at imaginary henchmen, or fondly imagining that your fountain pen doubles as some sort of deadly offensive weapon, its OK to admit that you like the idea of gadgets.

If you're reading this and nodding, then you are almost certainly a man (or else, a bit of a Tomboy, which is fine too). In which case, you probably found this article whilst searching for a 'spy earpiece' online. Ergo, the sort of person who buys this is, well, someone just like you.

If, however, you clicked this page because you want to know what sort of person uses such a device (or indeed, what, if any, its practical applications are), then you've come to the right place, ma'am.

Its not all James Bond wannabes, you know.

Teaching professionals cunningly utilize spy earpieces to receive information in real time as they go through vast amounts of information in front of a class. They also employ such gadgets when giving lengthy and complex presentations to superiors or potential students. This goes double (or even triple) for public speakers.

Amazingly, the time spent preparing a reliable body of information and then having an accomplice drip feed the correct answers to you via the earpiece would probably be better spent actually learning the material in the first place. However, you can also use spy earpieces in presentations in much the same way that businesspeople do.

Security personnel will also use spy earpieces, as surprising as that may be to read. Often, the security professional is used as a deterrent; large, imposing men and women are geared up with walkie-talkies and sharp suits or black uniforms in order to encourage would-be troublemakers to think twice. However, it is also common for security guards to operate in plain clothes, keeping an eye on potential situations discreetly and quietly. For this, they use a spy earpiece. For the same reasons, even undercover police have been known to employ spy earpieces.

So, the earpiece appeals to more than just the gadget-crazed would-be 007. Spy earpieces are used by a broad cross-section of the community, not just by men with a little too much time on their hands!

Finding a spy earpiece can be a difficult task, the website EarpieceOnline.co.uk is one of the best places to get one.

WWE Crowns New World Champion at Landmark Event

Posted

Last Sunday, World Wrestling Entertainment hosted the 30th edition of its annual 'WrestleMania' Pay Per View event. The company celebrated its anniversary in style by crowning a new World Champion in Daniel Bryan, a greatly respected wrestler formerly known as 'The American Dragon'.

The show, held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, featured a star-studded card. Returning stars Hulk Hogan, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and The Rock made non-wrestling appearances, as more recent stars like Antonio Cesaro, The Shield and AJ Lee emerged triumphant in various contests.

The talk of the night, however, was Daniel Bryan.



As part of the WWE's ongoing storyline, 'D-Bry' had made an enemy of company bosses Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. He first won the WWE Championship at the company's 'SummerSlam' PPV in August of last year, however, minutes later, fellow wrestler Randy Orton arrived and took the belt away via the company's 'Money in the Bank' stipulation.

Later, at September's 'Night of the Champions' event, Bryan was victorious over Orton, only to have his title belt stripped away the following night by HHH. Further attempts to raise the gold at October's 'BattleGround' PPV and October's 'Hell in a Cell' event were also unsuccessful (in most cases due to some outside interference).

During this time, Daniel Bryan's quest for the WWE laurels became a mainstream concern. His T-shirts were seen being worn at numerous American sporting events and his signature chants of "YES! YES! YES!" and "NO! NO! NO!" were heard in a multitude of sports.

For a while, the WWE appeared to have dropped Daniel Bryan as a Main Event prospect, raising the ire of his fellow wrestlers and wrestling fans alike. The company promoted returning wrestler and former champion Batista as being the hero that would unseat the villainous Randy Orton, but fans rejected this premise, booing Batista and demanding Bryan.

The event stipulations were that Daniel Bryan first had to defeat multi-time WWE Champion Triple H in order to gain a place in the Main Event against Orton and Batista (all are considerably bigger than the diminutive would-be champ). If successful, Bryan would then have to triumph over the combined might of two established WWE stars in order to finally take back the title.

The majority of fans werehere.

More controversial (and far more polarizing) was legendary wrestler The Undertaker's loss to former WWE and UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) kingpin Brock Lesnar. The Undertaker is famous for his winning streak at the WrestleMania events, having never lost in 21 years of appearances at the company's flagship show. Lesnar's victory signalled 'Taker's first ever loss at the event, something which many fans found distasteful and upsetting.

WrestleMania has been the WWE's signature event since 1985. The show was wrestling's first major Pay Per View event and featured appearances by mainstream MTV stars of the time like Cindi Lauper, Mr. T and even Liberace.

In addition to numerous live musical acts (most notably Ray Charles, Little Richard, Living Colour, Run DMC, Willie Nelson, Ozzy Osbourne and Motorhead) later celebrity WrestleMania appearances have included boxing Champion Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, American footballer Lawrence 'LT' Taylor, Mike Tyson, baseball legend Pete Rose, Pamela Anderson, Burt Reynolds, Mickey Rourke, Alice Cooper and, of course, Muhammad Ali.

The 30th anniversary show was also the first WWE event to be streamed online via the company's newest venture, the WWE Network, a live-streaming subscription service.
