Very little time left on that battery. But if this ping is it. That battery can die now it did it's farking job!

 It will be found.

FTFA: "And he said he was puzzled that only one signal had been detected, since each of the recorders was equipped with a pinger, which is also called a beacon."

I see nothing puzzling about this. We already knew the batteries were running out. There's a high probability that one recorder's battery will expire before the other, and/or that the recorder was damaged in some way that prevents its signal from being received, or simply that it's buried slightly deeper in silt and its signal can't be received from as far away.

Sum Ting Ping.

You know, for all the palaver about recovering the black box(es) and how that would clear up everything so that the mystery of MH370 would be resolved, I'm waiting to hear they recovered the damned things but "experts warn that they will only tell part of the story and what happened might never be known."

Ok, expert people, what else could emit a ping that could be mistaken for an airplane black box?

Other media now dubiously claim that there was a seqence of signals heard.

"Chinese patrol ship Haixun 01 searching for flight MH370 discovered a pulse signal with a frequency of 37.5kHz per second in south Indian Ocean waters Saturday,"

Well yeah, and then they'll talk about the family members and probably interview as many of them as they can.

But a slow news month?

Is Afghanistan not holding an election?  Crimea's still not occupied by Russian troops?  I don't understand why Leland Yee isn't bigger news.  Running weapons to MILF who somehow is not designated a terrorist organization isn't a big deal?

The Brits have a nuke boat in the area. The depth they can go down to is classified, probably 1000ft or so. Tom Clancy would know but he's not around anymore.

There's nothing dubious; there was a sequence. It was reported elsewhere far before CNN / Fark got to it and added a paragraph muddying the waters about one signal versus a sequence. What CNN meant is that there should be two separate sequences of signals *if* both recorders are intact, still have battery, and aren't buried too deep in the silt for the signal to be heard from the ship's location. Which is a lot of ifs, so there's nothing at all surprising about hearing a sequence of signals. And you have to hear a sequence of signals to have any real belief that what you're hearing is a recorder ping.

From Fox News:

The report says a black box detector deployed by the vessel, Haixun 01, picked up a signal at 37.5Hz per second Saturday at around 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude.

It's accelerating!

I read in another article that the pings are the same in all the devices. Which article is correct?

Everyone (mediawise) reporting this are idiots - don't they have fact checkers? Anyone with even a modicum of solid science education knows that 1 Hz is 1 cycle per second.

It's not just Fox.  It seems a lot of other news sources used the exact same phrase.  It's all like they're just using an AP story.  They do that quite a bit.

I heard that once they located the pulse beacon, the captain said, "Advice from an old tracker. If you want to find someone, use your eyes."

They are the same. The Chinese only heard one signal pulsing, not two.

Kind of like if you have one alarm clock going off, or two at the same time. Same signal, but you can tell the difference between one and two.
 
2014-04-05 12:21:04 PM  
This being the Chinese navy, the captain ordered Ping to verify the range to target, one Vasily only.
