I chose Jagdgeschwader2 as I was looking up some markings for a model I was building at the time. I also suck at Photoshop and I found a picture to make a simple sig from.

On radar I won't even pull out of the driveway without switching on my Beltronics detector. It's part of my checklist. Radar traps are a real problem here in Dallas. The average cost of a speeding ticket here is well over $200.00. Northwest Highway is one of the major speed traps. It's a long stretch of hilly road surrounded by trees with a speed limit of 35 mph. I have noticed the police using a new tactic in the morning before light here lately. One squad car will sit in the median facing the traffic at the bottom of a hill and shoot his radar as normal and he will do nothing regardless of their speed. All cars will slow when they see him of course. After they pass and they think it's OK they will speed up and then over the next hill they will hit another squad car facing the opposite direction ready to go and he will then pick them off. I call this road the gauntlet. My radar detector has saved me hundreds of times. I don't leave home without it. It's actually kind of fun driving through the gauntlet. It's a similar experience to dodging SAMS in a Phantom from what I've read. Except you don't die if hit you just get a big fat ticket. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Really simple: I am Italian even if I have lived in the UK for 17 years by now, so I wanted an Italian screen name. After about 45 minutes trying to sign in on the Ubi forum I had tried every possible nickname related to Italian planes I could think of, but they were all already taken. In the end I was so exasperated that I typed in "SUPERAEREO", the acronym for the Regia Aeronautica's supreme command in WW2.

It wasn't taken and I was tired of trying to find a suitable screen name, so I kept and I have been using it on every aeronautical forum I suscribed to ever since...

However, POP mode may not be used in issuing citations, as the speed cannot be locked and no droppler tone is generated, a requirement for establishing a "vehicle tracking history".
Furthermore POP is only operational in the stationary mode. MPH offers POP models in both the Ka band, 33.8 GHz and the K band, 24.150. Each detector was placed at the 1/4 mile cone and given three tries to detect the K and Ka band POP modes. "Y" means the detector detected POP mode, "N" means the detector did not detect the POP mode.

also the beating the drunk anology is totally rediculous..

Most of us Rd users now use our rd's to avoid being pulled over in "speed traps" which have no other purpose then to extract revenue from the innocent.

they are almost always posted at spots where the speed limit slows suddenly from 65 to 45 mph for no apparent reason and towns use these spots as revenue traps to fund their town budget without having to raise taxes on their own towns people. Find policemen sitting right at 45 mph sign when the road was a second before 65 mph or one one going up and down such a spot in their police cars running "moving radar" and you have found just such a spot.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Bagged, tagged, fly the flag, catch and release the way to go with Billfish http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


hehe...from the old nick thread:

A Billfish is a generic term for all White/Striped/Blue/Black Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, & Spearfish......All having elongated serrated upper jaws or snouts used to stun prey.

Naturally aggressive, fast and powerful tending to circle their prey till it clusters in a swirling ball then slash through it injuring many where they will then finish off those wounded. Some interesting side notes are all of their fins except pectoral can be retracted into their bodies into groves somewhat, flaps of skin covering them (all except swordfish) making them extremely hydrodynamic like a dart almost.

They have been known to even attack boats, and a large Broadbill Swordfish once attacked the Alvin deep submarine so violently it lodged its bill into a seam so firm it was unable to be removed.

I catch them with both heavy tackle and fly fishing gear. My best so far a 736# Pacific Blue Marlin on heavy tackle and an est. 300+# on fly tackle. Unfortunately I cannot post any pics of me fishing for them as blacked out censored patches look stupid....Have to tan don't cha? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I also tend to fly here like a Billfish hunts. Linger off at high altitude positioning, circling my prey having them cluster and lose E, then slash through wounding as many as I can, over and over till as many as possible are crippled, then finish them off 1 by 1 at my liesure.

For my callsign: Rohrspatz is a bird, well known for loud blustering, which I did one day when someone stole my kills hundreds of times. My wife entered the room, heard me cursing and said something like "stop shouting like a Rohrspatz"
So I changed my nick - used to fly as sy-subrc before that, which is the name of a system variable in the ABAP (SAP) programming language.

My friends started to call me LoneRanger when I began horseback riding about 15 years ago. I also had no girlfriend at that time and some of my friends found I was just to nice for this world.

The Captain was added, when I joined the German Navy.

They remembered that name, when we started playing multiplayer-games and I tended to let people run, if they were unarmed or wounded, instead of going for the points. Since then, this name sticks to me, even though I stopped riding and got married in the meanwhile. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The first nick I used here and in the german forums was the one I brought with me from EAW; then I decided to change it.

I love Wagner and his music, the background of his music and the german culture ( before Nazi ).

Hugin and Munin are the two ravens that fly around the world for Wotan ( or Odin as the northern tribes called him ) and are his personal messanger service.
Now I figured that these two characters were the first form of a german airforce and since this is a WW2 forum I changed it to " Hun in".
Just so folks could figure where I'm from ( that was long before the avatar flag weaving http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif )

08-03-2007, 10:38 AM
I was born in a little town named Braintree, in southeastern England in the early 1950s. My father, at that time a buck sergeant air traffic controller in the USAF stationed at RAF Wethersfield, was on duty that Sunday afternoon when he got a message from the Ops building that they had a phone call for him from the hospital (there being no outside lines run to the tower where he worked).

He got permission to go down from his tower chief, and went down and picked up the phone, at which point the pilots from the flight of F-84s that had just arrived burst into the Ops office and loudly greeted their waiting buddies.

My Dad, unable to hear the Sister's report of whether his firstborn was male or female, momentarily forgot military courtesy, and bellowed at the people in the lobby to shut the hell up so he could find out if his wife had given birth to a boy or a girl.

He'd just learned that I was a boy when a trio of angry men in wrinkled flight suits rounded the corner, led by a tall young colonel with a very stormy expression on his face. Suddenly conscious of the enormous gulf between colonels and buck sergeants, my Dad thought fast.

He whipped out the pack of cigars he'd bought to celebrate my (expected) birth with his tower crew and blurted out "It's a boy! Cigars, gentlemen?"

About fifteen years later, when I showed him a copy of 1000 Destroyed: The Life & Times of the 4th Fighter Group in WWII I'd found in the school library, my Dad (now a Master Sergeant) identified the legendary Don Blakeslee as the young colonel who had lit the first cigar celebrating my birth (and promptly choked and exclaimed "Jesus! Where did you get this piece of ****?" -and then shook my Dad's hand, and gave him a couple of decent cigars "...for your buddies.").

Naturally, I stole his callsign when I joined these forums.
