Why is Google building a secret giant experimental radio transmitter in the desert?
Outside Truth or Consequences, New Mexico in the sparsely populated, middle-of-nowhere area where Spaceport America is located, Google is planning to build a huge experimental radio transmitter, the purpose of which is apparently secret.
Much of Google’s application with the FCC is redacted.
Here’s a summary of what can be gleaned, according to Popular Mechanics:
It will work in ranges typically utilized for communications devices (the 2.5 GhZ and 5.8 GhZ band), but includes higher millimeter bands.
As Benchoff points out, there’s a transmitter in the 70-80 GHz band. That band isn’t regulated much by the FCC, and is typically used for high-bandwidth communications, and frequencies just under that range (60 GHz) may indeed be utilized for high-bandwidth wireless routers. But whereas those devices will use power in the watts, Google wants a 96.4 kilowatt transmitter. AM radio stations top out at 50 KWs, which can reach at least 38 states. But whereas that’s omnidirectional, Google wants something that also concentrates on very narrow widths.
Considering the company’s cozy relationship to government spy agencies and the Bilderberg Group, its infatuation with AI and The Singularity à la its Director of Engineering and Futurist Ray Kurzweil, and the patenting of gadgets such as this creepy child’s toy that spies on anyone who comes near it, there’s every reason to question what Google is really up to here.
PM updated the article to say:
As a reader pointed out, the frequency would not give the coverage area of AM radio as indicated below, but would go about 230 miles if pointed very precisely and used for high-volume wireless communication, lending credence to the idea that it’s a wifi system.
