We make Ku-band backpacks for this type of scenario. I would give it 12-18
hours before you see CNN light up with live feeds.. I didn't even KNOW
this was happening prior to them doing this. Seems like cutting off access
would alert a lot more folks than some people wrecking Sudan over fuel
Doesn't look like it's been picked up by CNN substantially yet, but I
imagine we'll get "breaking news" soon enough. Would be interesting to see
if it was a forced drop or did they actually just take a pair of scissors
and murder the internets?
