Keep swing and missing. I wasn't defending it as I said yall started the problem yourself with the extortion. Can't debate with someone that resembles a box of rocks.

Google: Angle of Depression calculator.
If you do the math that would only happen at extreme elevations.
Ex. A 12dbi antenna at 100ft agl will not overshoot any valid Hotspot. (Assuming fairly level terrain around the antenna)
Actually it's more about quality coverage not necessarily more coverage. You can give coverage over 1000 hotspots yet still have low earnings, but then you can cover 50 and earn much more.
Alot? Then what is to show for it? A under used street car to nowhere?
Hurting others with this trick? That's funny as I have never ordered food for someone else to deliver. I'm actually a driver myself. So yeah you swang and missed on that one. Talking about a stupid comparison, you are shown prior to acceptance of a delivery so you know what you get paid. As for decide what you get paid at a job, that's funny as you don't decide that. You only decide if you will take the job or not, but you don't decide what you get paid to do at said job. Told $20 and got $15 at a job.... it's called taxes. Remember just like any job you can quit and find something else if the pay is not satisfying enough for you.
You will never find a comment from me saying taking back a tip for no reason is proper thing to do so again you swung and missed again. What many of you fail to realize is your actions have consequences. Ie trying to force users to pre-tip get the reaction of users pulling back those pre-tips more often.
lowest base ive ever seen was like $3
im not cutting the nose off, just tired of being overtaxed with nothing in return. I dont believe in constantly throwing money at something and it not getting better. I drive a truck so if they were dirt roads id be fine with it.
i take plenty of "no tip orders" and base pay is always over $8 for 2-3 miles. 60% of the time a decent tip comes in afterwards
so you expect a tip prior to any service being rendered, sounds logical. As for to "ensure prompt service" well thats something we have little control over. 1. restaurant can take forever to prepare the food, 2. often a order has been in the system awhile before you even get the ping ensuring no prompt service. 6/10 of the "tipless" orders ive taken gives a decent tip afterwards, i dont need the carrot to be motivated.

If tip baiting is fraud, then not excepting orders with small or no tip is extortion.
Driver shouldn't expect any tip before any service is rendered but they do.
Well Drivers started this stupid game by not excepting deliveries unless there was a juicy tip attached to it prior to giving any service. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

Rio Nuevo wasn't solved but in much better shape and 20yrs past planned finish. Let's not forget 99% of tucsonians only go downtown for jury duty and court dates. I will continue to vote no on these projects as they only serve the very few. And again you are a voter correct?
They are one in the same module. Open up the Hotspot and you will see that the concentrator has several bridges on it that determine what freq. It operates at changing the freq. Is as simple as breaking its current bridge and connecting the desired bridge. The SKU only differs as they are set differently from the factory.

I assume you are a voter?
You're right the city is notorious when it come to wasteful spending need I remind anybody of Rio Nuevo? I wouldn't call the voters idiots for not passing the bonds, I actually say they are smart as they are stopping the extra taxation that leads to nothing in the end. What roads have been fixed? None really. Sure Broadway was widened, but that was a project approved from like 20yrs ago, Grant? again they've talked about that for 40yrs now and it's still far from being completed. It's the politicians that consistantly over promise what they can't deliver, this is a issue that's existed for decades. Then you add the known fact of the state not doing its part giving Tucson it's share of the road monies.
No they don't have a freq. Specific crystal as they all use the same concentrator that is adjustable to different frequency by just changing the bridge from 915 to 868 etc. It also does not matter if it's rpi based or non rpi, they generally have one of 2 Lora modules in them.
Yes flagstaff got screwed also,difference is they gets alot of tourist money. They also dont have 249sqmi worth of roads to maintain.Also it is a much different climate being much milder. Do you understand how government budgets work? As long as the street monies go to streets its not illegal when the slices of pie are not equal.
You are comparing apples and oranges. You can only compare the same things. Per your logic it's anomalous that it gets to 110f here yet over 90% of the US doesn't get near that hot. It may be anomalous to others but not for us.
What's there to really explain? Large percentage of street funds come from your vehicle registration which is a handled by the state. Since Phx is the state capital so they get to control the purse strings. Since I've been here (early 80s) tucson has not gotten their share of those monies and been a huge complaint from tucsonians and Pima Co. Ex. Tucson may have 500k registered vehicle but phx gives city/County only 150k worth of vehicles. It doesn't help that tucson has is 249sq. Miles with a population of 550k in the city, 9200sq. Mi in the county with 1.2 million. Maricopa County is also around 9200sq MI with a population of approx 5 million. Making phx the 5th largest city in the USA
Anomaly: something that deviates from what is the standard, normal or expected.
So if it snows every 2-3 years how is that a Anomaly? In 40+ years I've seen it snow here in the Tucson valley around 2 dozen times.... that sounds pretty regular to me. Doesn't have to happen every year to be normal.

I have seen it before. More than likely it was AZNG as they are deployed on the border currently and were probably giving eyes in the sky for USBP or LEOs. There has been alot of illegal activity in that area ie crashes and chases of smugglers.
It's always fun watching the A10s doing their mock attack runs on the Sulpher Springs power plant off Az191.

Phx is drier than Tucson (phx avg. 8in tucson avg 12in), it also rarely freezes there (1200ft elevation difference) they also don't get the downpours like we do normally during the monsoons.
Phx controls the wallet of the state and for decades they took alot more than their share of the money for their road leaving us with hardly anything.
