Noticed Something VERY IMPORTANT About The CNN, BBC Headquarters Buildings


Truthblast

Recommended Posts

Below are aerial images of CNN Atlanta Center and BBC New Broadcasting House.

 

Normally, large multi-channel broadcasters have AN ENTIRE ROOF SATURATED WITH MANY TYPES OF SATTELITE DISHES AND SATTELITE UPLINKS.

 

But CNN HQ has only 2 lone dishes visible.

 

BBC HQ has only 6, and they all point in the SAME DIRECTION - are there NO SATTELITES in the other directions?

 

What does this MEAN though?

 

It means that these BROADCASTERS ARE HOOKED INTO SOME KIND OF HIGH SPEED TERRESTRIAL COMPUTER NETWORK FROM WHICH THEY CAN:

 

A) Easily follow 100s of TV channels around the World for news and footage of world events

 

B) Talk to OTHER news broadcasters elsewhere WITHOUT anyone eavesdropping

 

C) They are likely NOT UPLINKING TO SATTELITE WHEN THEY BROADCAST. Everything is going over this UNKNOWN TERRESTRIAL NETWORK.

 

 

In other words THE WORLD'S MOST WELL KNOWN NEWS BROADCASTERS ARE HOOKED INTO TO SOME KIND OF UNDISCLOSED INTERNET-LIKE COMPUTER NETWORK WHICH HAS 100% DATA TRANSMISSION RELIABILITY, BECAUSE THEIR LIVE BROADCASTS NEVER FREEZE OR CUT OUT.

 

 

To put it BLUNTLY, the self-proclaimed "WORLD'S MOST TRUSTED NEWS BROADCASTERS" are very likely ON A NATO OPERATED MILITARY NETWORK WITH 100% UPTIME/RELIABILITY.

 

The "OTHER INTERNET"...

Just to add, if a signal is broadcasted and can be received it has been recorded and never deleted, no matter the medium it's transceived on, and with quantum computing encryption is next to useless, however encryption is useful for the everyday world that civilians transact with, keeps the thieves at bay when shopping or transacting with your bank.

Also the signal would be sent to a designated bank of dishes away from the main production building, and the main terrestrial transmission tower for the south east London region is at Crystal Palace.

CNN International and BBC International are broadcasting multiple channels through many different TV sattelites around the globe.

 

You can watch both on EVERY continent in the world with a small sattelite dish.

 

Normally sattelite broadcasters have a WHOLE ARRAY of UPLINK/DOWNLINK dishes and antennas on their HQ roof.

 

These fellows DO NOT, which is ODD.

 

So what TERRESTRIAL NETWORK are they working through?

With the power of computing ever increasing you simply do not need huge dishes and antennas at the production site, it makes sense because of the power requirements to actually do the transmitting part and less to worry about keeping it all going, a simple signal transmitted over the net is all you need to send to the transmitter station which would be looked after by external contractors to keep the whole thing working, so the production side simply just concentrates on the artistic aspect of how they wish to present whatever it is they are presenting.

Also the bbc building looks like a hoof, part of the horsey set, knowadimean, nudge nudge, wink wink, the horus isis and seth crowd, 🤣

Actually National broadcasters ALWAYS have a WARTIME CONTINGENCY PLAN.

 

In the event of WAR or a SERIOUS ATTACK ON THE CAPITAL OF A COUNTRY they are REQUIRED TO HAVE A BACKUP PLAN TO CONTINUE BROADCASTING.

 

So it is VERY VERY ODD that the BBC for example DOES NOT HAVE A ROOF FULL OF BACKUP SAT UPLINKS/DOWNLINKS.

 

It is SUICIDE in an EMERGENCY SITUATION to HAVE YOUR TV STUDIO IN ONE PLACE AND YOUR SATTELITE GEAR IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LOCATION.

 

I have seen TV BROADCAST HQs in various countries which had 20+ sattelite dishes, transponders and antennas on their roofs.

 

The fact that CNN and BBC do not have this points to something important:

 

They have a NON-SATTELITE way of MONITORING 100s OF FOREIGN NEWS CHANNELS + ALSO BROADCASTING THEMSELVES.

 

"NEWS NETWORKS" is the term.

 

The MSM are likely hooked into an UNDISCLOSED COMPUTER NETWORK FOR TV BROADCASTERS which is SEPARATE FROM THE INTERNET.

 

NOTHING EVER LEAKS OUT about the ACTIVITIES of DOZENS OF IMPORTANT BROADCASTERS.

 

I strongly suspect that THEY ARE ON A SPECIALIZED NETWORK which is COMPLETELY SEPARATE FROM THE PUBLIC INTERNET.

You really only have four mediums to communicate on, radio, optical, electrical, and the earth inclusive of air and water, gravity would be a good medium to communicate on as well as entanglement, perhaps that is what CERN is actually trying to do, how far they have been able to do this is wide open to speculation.

At risk of sounding somewhat dense insofar as technology.  I noticed that during two years of 'lockdown' here in Canada roads were closed to install miles and miles of underground cables for the internet. The service provider all the time was AECON. This same provider works in Antarctica and is connected to other such installations. Would internet be the way they are transmitting but with a separate set of underground connections?

 

Let me know if this sounds unlikely...I just thought I''d throw out there what Ive noticed...& AECON works worldwide.

Yes, this is what i thought from seeing the AECON installations... there seems to be mass rewiring of the underground systems... especially from what I can see here (Canada)

Yeah, like Internet but likely so technically different - the signals, cables and encryption being sent - that even if you dug up the cables and were able to listen in you probably wouldn't be able to make much sense of the data captured.

 

I also remember reading something about Quantum-something data transmission where nobody can manipulate the cables without immediately setting off an alarm and causing all further data transmission to cut off immediately.

 

Again, wiretaps and leaks technically impossible.

 

I'll look into AECON.

 

Yeah, they like Bankers because many will do anything for more money.

Something is a bit strange. A few months ago I found info on the net about Aecon in Antarctica...now I cant find it...except in the results (the brief outline that shows when results pop up) when I search. But when I click it, the info is gone. Just weird.

This is interesting - China bought Aecon !!!

China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) has agreed to acquire Canada’s Aecon Group through its International Holdings company, CCC

Sorry but this is ridiculous, in my career I've come across the BBC system.

 

I'm a satellite engineer, I work in a satellite earth station.

 

Firstly I know that BBC TVC used to have lots of dishes and that when they closed it, the satellite services were moved to other earth stations.

 

Secondly, although the BBC does broadcast all over they will rely on other 3rd parties, like Arqiva who handle the British terrestrial broadcast antenna's, to provide broadcast and re-broadcast of their services.

 

It does not all come from London.

 

To make an assumption that there MUST be an 'undisclosed computer system' based on a flimsy premise like the number of dishes is reaching.

 

Incredible claims require incredible evidence.

 

Clearly you don't work in broadcasting or have an understanding of how it works these days. The BBC own very little, they contract out some of their operation like other broadcasters do.

 

You've made several outlandish claims based on a very flimsy premise.

Nothing ever LEAKS out of state broadcasters.

 

You get the odd junior journalist here and there being shamed for "sexing up a story" or "making baseless claims".

 

Have you ever seen ANYONE write a POWERFUL INSIDER ACCOUNT of a what goes on at a STATE BROADCASTER?

 

Have you ever seen an UNAUTHORIZED AUDIO RECORDING or SECRETLY SHOT VIDEO FOOTAGE from THE EDITORIAL OFFICES OF A STATE BROADCASTER?

 

I mean the DIRECTOR OR CHIEF EDITOR - ON TAPE - GOING "LETS PUT THIS OR THAT SPIN ON THIS STORY".

 

ANY COUNTRY - Britain, Germany, France, Netherlands or whatever will do.

 

If these broadcasters are NOT NETWORKED TO EACH OTHER VIA SOME KIND OF ENCRYPTED SYSTEM...

 

HOW DO THEY COORDINATE THE "CANCELLING" OF VARIOUS PEOPLE?

 

HOW DO SO MANY MSM BIGSHOTS HAVE THE EXACT SAME STORY WITH THE EXACT SAME ANGLE ON THE SAME DAY WITHIN AT BEST A FEW HOURS OF EACH OTHER?

 

Because they are ON AN UNDISCLOSED, HEAVILY ENCRYPTED COMMUNICATION NETWORK OF SOME KIND, WHETHER TERRESTRIAL OR IN SPACE, THAT'S WHY.

 

MILNET?

 

ARPANET?

 

NATONET?

 

SOMETHINGELSENET?

 

Al-Jazeera in DOHA runs the same story as the BBC in LONDON runs the same story as CNN in ATLANTA within 3 hours of each other?

 

 

 

HOW DO THESE BROADCASTERS COMMUNICATE ACROSS SUCH DISTANCES WITHOUT ANYONE BEING ABLE TO EAVESDROP OR LEAK IT?

 

 

 

THOUSANDS OF CRAZY HACKERS AROUND THE WORLD CANNOT GET 1 EMAIL, 1 MEMO, 1 INSTANT MESSAGE FROM THE "BIG BROADCASTERS".

 

 

THE BIGGEST CORPORATIONS WITH THE BEST IT SECURITY GET "COMPROMISED" OR "HACKED" ALL THE TIME.

 

 

NOBODY IS ABLE TO GET EVEN A .PDF DOCUMENT FROM CNN, BBC, AL-JAZEERA AND THE REST OF THE BUNCH.

 

 

This suggests that they DO NOT USE THE INTERNET BUT RATHER SIT ON A DIFFERENT, COMPLETELY CLOSED OFF NETWORK OF ANOTHER KIND.

 

 

OPTICAL FIBER? QUANTUM NETWORKING? SATELLITES?

 

 

WHO KNOWS?

 

 

BECAUSE THE WHOLE THING IS SO UNTRANSPARENT.

Yeah sure - Conspiracy of Silence? Yorkshire TV produced it for Discovery networks.

 

Link to watch banned and leaked footage, leaked by journo's within broadcasting industry -

 

Link - https://www.monsterchildren.com/watch-conspiracy-of-silence/

 

As for the rest of your post, all I can say is you clearly don't understand how TV industry works - there are things called 'Pool Feeds' ITV, BBC, C4 take it in turns to cover Royal events, for instance, and they feed their pictures, without logo's, to BT tower where all the other broadcastets can book across it and take the pool feed pictures to broadcast on their own networks. Its that simple.

 

Dude, your reaching, and its fantasy.

 

For the sake of Flat Earthers, I can confirm, as an engineer, there are no secret fibre connections at our Earth Station and we really do receive signals from spacecraft orbiting the Earth - we don't just spend all day pretending to do it to cover the conspiracy - we actually transmit and receive signals, from orbiting satellites and satellite orbits are only possible with a globe Earth.

From my old knowledge. BBC contracts its transmitter operations to Arqiva based in Winchester. Arqiva operate all the BBC transmitters around the country. These transmitters are linked to the BBC via British Telecom provided fiber optic links, these are dedicated links provided for BBC use. BBC pay BT several million per year to operate these links.

 

The transmitters are the essential link between the BBC and the viewer / listener. The BBC operations are licenced as are all other broadcasters by Ofcom. Ofcom is a government agency.

 

The history of the transmitters is well known, for example Sutton Coldfield is used for all TV and Radio in the West Midlands and was built in the 1950s.

The equipment used at the transmitter sites or the studios is not secret, just that there is so much of it that nodody bothers talking about. There must be 2000 engineers running the equipment from BBC studios to the transmitters around the country and the majority of the duties of those engineers is not always involved in running the BBCs equipment, but also equipment for other companies.

 

Internet is too limited to carry the multi megabit capacity required for the links from studio to transmitter. Too much latency between individual points which is what you notice when downloading something. The transmitters need to fed via near real time links. The BBC used two central locations full of servers and network switches which also link the BBC's studio centres (Manchester/Norwich/Southampton and so on) and then there is a direct link from bother central locations to the transmitter.

 

BBC Satellite TV was fed from Brookmans Park and I think Arqiva Winchester HQ and these uplinks were probably fed from the two central locations (Wood Norton and I forget the other (London Broadcasting House ? ).

 

I was an engineer with Arqiva, therefore know nothing of the BBC internal political operations and editorial decisions. The BBC employs several thousand people in different roles and I doubt a producer on a game show will know anything about editorial decisions made in the main news room in London. The daily operations of a big organisation are simply too big to watch internally. Anybody who has worked in a big organisation will tell you the same.

 

I understand there are several fixed links between the UK and USA. The BBC will send and receive video down these for all purposes and book time as needed. Feeds might be encrypted in a similar manner to that used by Sky for satellite TV to your home via Astra satellite. I don't know what standard the BBC use or why.

 

So what your interested in is the BBC internal operations in London and editorial decisions.

So was I - I worked in the MCR at Chalfont Grove - left about 17 years ago.

 

At the time it was the largest Teleport in Europe.

 

Thanks for your explanation.

 

Just one more thing - as one broadcast engineer to another - can you confirm satellites are real and there are no secret cables in our facilities? (for the flatearthers)

Can I just add, I worked an MCR where we hosted American Military equipment, it worked on X Band, I looked all over that facility for the kit, I couldn't find it. It was well hidden.

 

But thats unusual as an MCR (Master Control Room) engineer, its my job to know every fibre, circuit or feed that comes in and goes out of my control room - I have to, if they break I have to fix them, thats the job. You can't support something if you don't know it exists, and being there 24/7 you get lots of time and opportunity to go poking about the rack rooms and learn the facility your supporting. 

 

If there was any unknown bits of kit or circuits, someone would have spotted it and blown the whistle or at least told other engineers what they found, we do talk, I have been privvy to several 'secret' systems in my time, I mostly only knew about them because other engineers who were working there before me told me about them, and because occasionly you test them.

 

 Word gets around.

I think the individual is concerned with the management / editorial policies and practices within the BBC. I know nothing of these. But in short, nearly all the technical side of the BBC is now within the private sector and therefore the BBC is treated as a customer in the same respect as Classic FM and the local radio station down the road.

The BBC uses services from many companies, that includes most TV entertainment (if you can call it that) which a friend of mine says is mainly sourced from contractors as well.

 

As for satellites. Yes I recall maintaining uplink equipment on one frequency and watching on a spectrum analyser the downlink on another frequency, so there was a transponder in the sky and I recall setting up the panning controller on one dish to track the satellite. Most of the transmission was encrypted data sourced from modems for different customers which included government departments, but what the data was, I have no idea as it was encrypted.

 

That backs up my statement above, the individual asking questions needs to concentrate on the internal operations in the BBC at management and editorial level. But down at engineer level, I never came across anything strange or secret.
