  1. Cape Canaveral its no, but I suppose they had to start out with a grassy field at one time too.

  2. A space station would bring in both workers and tourists alike and anyone coming on the airplane will not be bringing a car, so better bus services and more amenities to be considered for the extra traffic this would bring perhaps? We had a talk about where CoOp, Aldi or Lidl might be best setting up shop, maybe this is relevant. https://www.shetlink.com/index.php?/topic/10018-coop/ ideally more houses and amenities for those going to the space station should be encouraged, problem is if you buy land and try to build something somebody is going to run straight to you with a giant list of what you cant do or just plain deny you. Unless you are a massive company that also feeds of the taxpayer! https://www.shetnews.co.uk/2020/12/07/planning-appeal-turned-down/ More thought to go into reluctance to allow new housing stock to be built and lack of effort to chase after nuisance derelict property owners with the double council tax bills they are authorised to charge and loosen their grip. If somebody doesn’t get to fix or build a house they don’t get to hire builders etc and if there are to be new developments suitable housing must be allowed to come into being or else those you want to work there will just crunch the numbers and conclude the juice is not worth the squeeze. Bus services up north leave something to be desired so tourism will be crippled by this and from what I gather the loss of the airport has driven a few away in search of work. https://www.shetnews.co.uk/2020/11/30/mossbank-parents-call-for-reinstatement-of-bus-service/ they say the council cant even afford a school bus since the area is not as profitable, now a central bus station possibly at Tingwall would cut off the Lerwick leg of the journey for some buses going north so that could make them more commercially viable. housing reforms that could lead to more revenue being collected, one possible way would be nationalisation of rentals with long term tenants who have no trouble paying by exchanging them for bonds based on either current appraisal or purchase price of the property allows the profits to be collected by the councils and the cost of the house could be recouped via right to buy and fill the coffers whilst the landlord(who except in cases with crap tenants is an overpriced middleman who exists solely because mortgages are too hard to get for under 40s) can move onto another property or cash in the bond a few years later to take a bit of weight of the public shoulders. System of social needs points are almost designed to saddle areas with tenants least able to pay by putting the most capable at the back of the line. So you have the space station, what will we find or hope to see built along the road to it?

  3. How it interfaces with the phone and compatibility is the complicated part, WHAT it is is not really complicated. and for some reason there seem to be a large cohort who think "Mobile phone signal booster" it is an internet speed increaser. That is annoying since they drown out anything from those who used these for intended purpose and gave genuine reviews. such as in bad signal areas Are you saying conceptualizing a radio signal or other wireless signal or at least its impact on electronics designed to give and receive these signals is beyond what Joe Average is able to acknowledge and comprehend? It is my understanding these products can only provide internet equal to or lower than(hardware bottleneck) what it picked up from the 4g network. pocket sized versions available too A phone signal Booster takes signal from one place and brings it over to the place where you need it, it is as if you have your own personal cell tower which is really just a mirror image of a cell tower further away! I don't think a Signal booster is a conceptually challenging issue. Radio signal boosters and TV signal boosters have been around for decades and there doesn't seem to have been many people who struggle to figure out what those are supposed to do.

  4. Because cell-towers use fiber and copper and there are loads of places in Shetland with crap phone signal, if you get no service or "emergency calls only" at home you are going to want a cable. How far away do you need to walk to find somebody with a better connection? You might want to look into where the circuits actually are. You can also get mobile phone signal boosters which take a signal from a good spot and rebroadcast it to the spot where you want to use it. get a good signal in that one spot in the garden? hook it up to a 12v put in a waterproof box and your house can now get a signal! Unfortunately morons think these devices are used to make broadband faster and the all have bad reviews from idiots, Gsm signal booster/repeater or Mobile phone signal booster this might be a cheaper option than satellite but you should find out a bit more technical info first so you can calibrate these to the correct frequencies.
