THE REALITIES OF REAL-TIME TRANCIEVERS
It seems as if everyone’s talking about “real-time” transceivers these days—or at least certain North American beacon manufacturers. During these conversations terms such as “real-time processing”, “real-time display”, “fastest” and “instantaneous” are frequently heard, but far too often, poorly understood. This is because these terms are either completely misused, or, are so diluted through their liberal use as mere marketing hype they’ve become devoid of meaning. “Real-time” however is a technical term derived from the engineering and computer fields. As such, it is a word with a very real and very precise definition.
For professionals and amateurs, then, to have informative and honest, discussions regarding comparative transceiver performance, it is absolutely critical for the definition of “real-time” to be made abundantly clear.
