Anyone who has ever traveled knows the rules by prohibiting the use of mobile phones inside the aircraft. Then why this measure. The force their passengers to turn off their phones once the gate passes, this measure is not arbitrary is a whim of these businesses. A mobile phone is a small radio-frequency wireless transmitter, you may have noticed that when you turn on your cell phone or receive a call there is a noise or interference in the receivers that you have around. The signals generated by the computer to turn on or receiving a call can create distortions in other electrical equipment, to confirm this simply turn on a mobile in the vicinity of a computer. While in common usage interference from cell phones go unnoticed, within the same plane, they can cause serious problems, including accidents. All base their control aircraft takeoff, and landing guidance in data provided by different devices that emit and receive radio signals constantly.

Among these devices is a transmitter that continuously sends the traffic control computers of the exact spot where the. That transmitter, radar and Global Positioning System (which sends information to satellite terminals), and others that help the pilot steer the ship, along with onboard telephony and Internet access, which are generally offer passengers as an additional service, are regulated so as not to interfere with each other. Thus, the signal transmitting a mobile phone can interfere with some of those instruments of navigation, even if they hold on and not receive a call, because usually every certain period of time the electronic circuit sends bursts of data to try not to lose coverage or to try to establish it. Usually, during the pilot can correct errors such interference can cause and the worst moments to produce the interference are the takeoff and landing, as it may produce an error in the machine that measures the distance that the aircraft is off the road and the chances of human error, guided by these data, ends in disaster, are high. Computers, PDAs, CD players, DVD and MP3 also has restrictions on use and should always consult with a hostess. At the same time to avoid the stress of organizing a trip by plane, the portal can be very useful. You'll find, and European and intercontinental. Victoria Molnar For more information:
