Ummmm, since you're making the decisions around here, yes. :)
Also I did fly jump seat from San Fran-Sydney Quantas 747. That sucked donkey balls.

In the cockpit? Yes, the jump seats suck. The Captain's seat, however, is very comfortable not to mention the reserved first class seat for crew breaks. :)

Yup in the cockpit. It blew butt. I was the project manager for Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney and was "commuting" from DFW-Sydney about every 6 weeks. Everything going to Australia was packed/oversold so they just stuck my big ass in the jump seat a few times.

Can't do that with USA airlines. Only crewmembers and FAA personnel giving check rides are allowed on the jump seats. The rules really tightened up after 9-11.

Exactly! Stalkers are growing and Dragons in certain areas. I'm more scared of Stalkers in Texas. No dragons here! ( maybe in few municipalities)

Hey Sarge excited to see the changes. Hope you stay with this as you and Jag seem to be a great team, each bringing different skills. Having said that, totally understand if you step down.

Just thought I would share in the quietness of a beautiful morning here on the beach.
Wow.....been a few months since @Jaguar said we should take a look at this guy from Taiwan's jammer system.
Since then we have had so many volunteers from this great forum all jump in to develop a more cost effective solution.
@Jag42 has literally dedicated his life here and I can never acknowledge him enough.
As I say often and loud.....TMG is a community effort and we have work to do and it is getting done.It is a work in progress.

But here is what I wish to share.

We have tons of things in the pipeline. All will work with the existing CPU/cables etc. so dont worry about being stuck with an outdated unit guys or having to re-run cables.
Life Cycle Management is critical and we will not obsolete you after a year or months here :)
We will not just release crap that isnt totally tested and this is why guys like @PY004 @Andrew21 @Jag42 @87GN @Brainstorm69 @erickonphoenix @Bossdad71 on and on...guys who have taken their personal time/gas/guns etc. are so critical testing and feedback to this community TMG effort to deliver the best product we can. Testing data is critical to us and feedback is very important. I welcome it and am thankful for it.
Guys like @mirage @RedRocket ........ and others for their knowledge and sharing their observations and valuable experience.

We have worked to acquire many more guns and have been successful in that effort with a major player.
We have worked to increase our development/manufacturing capacity and that is now bearing fruit.
We are developing new technology that will plug into your existing unit using your existing cables that will increase the performance/effectiveness against VPR guns.
I hate the algo update process. Ming has hired hitman to kill me if I dont stop screaming at him about it.....
And of course Ming/Dr. H/Others are busting ass to continue covering more guns/variables of guns and that will continue at a torrid pace.

Timelines? In the next 90 days or so we should be able to release a lot of the enhancements that are being worked on now. Again....it aint going out the door if it cannot get the job done reliably and long term. Period.

I must get one thing off my chest.
The TMG project was born and continues to be a group project with numerous members here involved as stated. It has never been an Us vs.Them thing. Red Team vs. Blue Team.

At some point in the near future I believe my value/worth to this project will come to an end and I will step aside and let somebody else take the lead.

For whatever it's worth to folks this morning just wanted to share.
If the Hybrid heads materialize then will they be offered at significant discount to the early adopters of the current units?

Not everyone might agree here; (In other words, I don't want to speak for everyone)

I don't get the impression that Jag42, Sarge, etc. are trying to take advantage of us as a community. I'm personally sure they will take care of us to the extent they are able should a need arise. :)

Yea, I think they are stand up individuals trying to do the right thing. If you look at ALP the 3rd head is required for Dragon Eye, but that was an existing product on the market that was improved. I do think TMG in this case needs to make right those that have bought systems when their new hybrid head is ready to go. It was a brand new system and reported to jam the DE. It kind of lulls you in with the lower pricing. Sounds like the new head will be firing out of sync with the others to fill in while the others are not firing.

The existing units do jam DET. No system I am aware jams 100% of every variable of every gun out there. Doesnt exist.
What the hybrid heads will do is enhance that ability.

Or maybe offer a trade-in program.
No "trade in" is required nor needed. Works with standard heads. Just stand by but dont think one head will replace th other. Doesnt work that way.

Why? Do competitors give you "discounts" on new features and functionality they come out with? BluTooth,GPS, Tx Heads? Did you get big discounts when they came out with those modules/features?

No but the system worked as advertised so no need for any of the updates unless I choose to use it.

If it's found that hybrid heads are required to block VPR guns with relability then I would expect a discount since I bought the system with understanding that it blocks all guns with the only one in question being a dragon which I knew. I won't be encountering a dragon hence I didn't care .

Now if the current heads work well and the only reason for hybrid is to block dragon then I don't care. The same reason I didn't buy TX to block dragon....I don't need it .

And saying that others didn't offer discounts; well that's fair. They didn't .However except for TX head, everything else you listed was an optional bells and whilwhis that did not impact the core function of why one buys CM...basically blocking guns. Do I need BT, gps or Speaker or App to block guns? No. Hence I dont care that competitors came out with those. Do I need a reliable system that blocks guns except Dragon as it was advertised? Yes.

What are you talking about? Show me what advertisement your talking about.If your talking about competitors units with the "third head" I got lots of testing data to refute your claim. Lots of independent data.

--- DOUBLEPOST MERGED ---

...and if you simply go back a few years to others rolling out their product your claim of "working as advertised" without the third head is blown out of the water. Totally false. Just like others we have to tune/improve to get more coverage....nothing new about that.
I see you added to your post. Now your talking VPR guns which TMG will/does block but your position of every variable of every scenario on every occasion in every environment just doesnt hold true for anybody. Look around and you will find people with $3500 systems getting hit and pulled over from TSS/Stalker guns. TMG is no different. We all are working to get better and enhance our abilities. Nothing new about that.

But to folks point of low cost. That is the entire reason the forum members involved in the TMG project have volunteered tons of time/resources and effort to keep TMG the lowest cost alternative out there. We ride the engineers with the feedback we get from these volunteers to produce solutions. But do not ever doubt this is a work in progress from the group involved.

--- DOUBLEPOST MERGED ---

I think some of you folks think TMG is a company Jag and I started. Could not be further from reality. It started and still is a large group of forum members working with the engineers in Taiwan to produce a reliable lower cost alternative. You should see the work going on right now with other forum members with the power/heads/diodes. It truly is impressive and way past my pay level.
Again and I stress for the 100th time. I wish the competition all the luck/well thoughts I can muster to kick Fudd's ass. TMG isnt the competitions enemy. FUDD is.TMG is focused and is not going anywhere. We will support the community and continue to improve the product with the guidance and help from members here.

--- DOUBLEPOST MERGED ---

What is just terribly sad to me is this development cannot be totally out in the open but has to be done on private forums etc. because of the childish silly ass bullshit from people who really are clueless what the TMG Project even is.

I think your efforts are laudable. Everyone must understand that it will never be possible to guarantee 100% protection. With all the best CM's, if you drive fast enough, eventually LEO will get you. This is just an effort to mitigate the risks as much as practical with the bounds of reason.
