So ADS-B transmitters that send a callsign and ICAO code can be fingerprinted. Yes it is true. Also many aircraft carry two transponders so there is that. This smells like a research project in search of cash. More research is needed, hahah, AKA send more money.

EPO systems are the leading cause of these outages. EPOs are required by code in most places and shut down the power to everything. Often the EPO systems are complex, uniquely designed, and not maintained.

Bad caps happen on a regular basis. Good thing we still have people that are willing to repair rather than toss.
Dell had a huge problem with chlorine contaminated caps not long ago. My most expensive prized radio needs new caps right now. I saved the day by replacing a capacitor on a critical device that was long out of support... And that is just how it goes.

Re: Atari Updates? Who for the senior citizens?
Sounds about right as I had a 2600 as a child. I just retired so don't have long to go. Good news though; The old 2600 still works and the only repair was replacing the big capacitor in the power supply brick.
This current Atari VCS 'company' is nothing more than the brand name owned by lawyers, FYI. Read the previous excellent evaluation by El Reg for the full details.
From June 2018
But most of all, we would like to apologize, sincerely, to all our readers and to anyone considering putting down money for the Atari VCS for completely omitting a critical part of the interview in our original article.
We made no mention of the fact that there is every reason to believe that Atari's entire enterprise is being funded by hype and that the only way the company can afford to create even its first console is by persuading people to hand over their cash before the company itself has a working prototype.
Ohio state's top legal eagle just made it harder for the FBI, ICE, cops to snoop around its DMV DB for people's faces
Training on our individual rights would be a good start.

This reminds me of 1990
Back around the time that HTML was being developed a USSS agent just happened to show up at our radio club meeting. Several of us were were using IRC to discuss frequencies and listening to certain government users. I figure that he came to the meeting to get our license plate numbers and whatever info we revealed. So for a very long time US Citizens have been monitored directly, have no doubt.
