  • Gerst Capital Challenges Globalstar: Prove TLPS Will Work On iPhone 6 (Apple Filings Say No) [View article]
    From the company:
    “transceiver compatibility with TLPS is universal for all 802.11 compliant devices, so the actual transmitter and receiver in any device that has wifi capability has TLPS capability from the get go, there is nothing has to be done to the chip”

    “For a lot of devices that have EBS capability there are broad filters that are put on the RF passes of the wifi transceiver to protect it from EBS radios, the Sprint radios 2.5Ghz and vice versa , and some of these filters are designed to end at around 2495Mhz to end comfortably before the EBS spectrum.”

    “We looked at this with Sprint in great detail, and essentially in most cases the filter is quite wide and has no impact on ch 14 whatsoever…and in a few cases the filter may clip part of the 22Mhz of ch 14, because we use only about 17Mhz or slightly less of the 22Mhz channel for the actual signal that clipping is really not material to the functionality of ch 14 and in fact generates super compliance with the out of band emission rule effectively cuts off any of the waste product ch 14 emits, creating additional protection not only for EBS radio but for the commercial service in general.”

    “so these filters were not designed with the idea of ch 14 or TLPS in mind, but they don’t really preclude its operation and it hasn’t been something in any of our testing has been of impact to the actual usability of the service with the existing ecosystem”

    “It actually makes use of ch 14 better from a regulatory perspective not worse.”

  • Gerst Capital Challenges Globalstar: Prove TLPS Will Work On iPhone 6 (Apple Filings Say No) [View article]
    The technical response is coming in the form of a demonstration being conducted for the FCC and other legitimate interested parties. The demonstration may begin as early as next week.

    Which begs the question, why is Gerst so impatient?

    The answer appears to be that Gerst is more interested in spreading a rumor in an attempt to drive the PPS lower than he is in waiting for Globalstar to demonstrate to the world that their product will work as advertised.

  • Gerst Capital Challenges Globalstar: Prove TLPS Will Work On iPhone 6 (Apple Filings Say No) [View article]
    OK, to begin let us explore who and what is Gerst Capital and why are they writing this piece after posting essentially the same info one week ago.

    Mr. Gerst's LinkedIn page shows Mr. Gerst has been a Manager at Gerst Capital for a little over seven years.

    Gerst Capital, according to the Credio website, has no reported FINRA disclosures, has one employee (Greg?), has total assets under management of $8.88 MM, and has a total of two (2), count 'em, 2 accounts.

    Mr. Gerst also discloses that he is short Globalstar.

    Now that we have established that Gerst Capital has doubled their number of accounts over the past seven years (presumably they started with one), we can understand why they demand respect from, and input into, the investing community.

    So it comes as no surprise that when Mr. Gerst's science fair project (last week's thesis declaring Globalstar's TLPS will not work on IPhone 6/6Plus), was not well received by the judges and came home without a single ribbon, Mr. Gerst was indignant.

    Given that Gerst Capital is shorting Globalstar, one has to wonder how much of that $8.8MM he is managing is at risk on his short position. Anyone following Globalstar knows that they will be demonstrating for the FCC and other legitimate interested parties sometime shortly after Feb. 23rd. Sorry that you are not on the invite list Greg, but you have to draw the line somewhere. There were thousands of foil hatted guys worried about emissions that were prioritized before you.

    As for your reporting that "at least one person" alleged Mr. Monroe referred to your analysis as "retarded", rest assured, many more people than Mr. Monroe feel the same way.

  • Globalstar's TLPS Will Not Work On iPhone 6/6 Plus; Globalstar Doesn't Know Whether Other Cellular Devices Will Work Either [View article]
    This analysis is akin to giving a monkey a walkie talkie and when he can't figure out how to work it, declaring that the walkie talkie doesn't work.

    The problem is not with the device, the problem is with the analyst's IQ.

  • Globalstar: LightSquared Filing Reinforces Worthlessness Of GSAT's 1.6GHz Band [View article]
    Well, the market has spoken. After regurgitating your worn thesis Gsat is up 1.5% on the day.
    You think Jay Monroe has his head in the sand? It appears everyone else believes you have your head up the rear portion of your anatomy just below the waistline!

  • Globalstar: LightSquared Filing Reinforces Worthlessness Of GSAT's 1.6GHz Band [View article]
    The issues you raise concerning Globalstar's 1.6GHz MSS band were addressed last August by Globalstar's CEO Jay Monroe. Per Nish.jjj on the GSAT message board:

    "So, for clarity, first, we do not believe there are any impediments to Globalstar’s use, on an uplink band basis, for our L band spectrum. It is not, in any way, consistent with the plans for similar spectrum that were developed by LightSquared. It’s the polar opposite of that.

    There are, always, some questions that have to be answered, but you may or may not recall that many years ago we went through these very questions with the FCC, when we were going to use it for uplink. And they established very strict out of band emissions limits, and because of the low power uplink and the out of band emissions limits, it was still terrific spectrum for someone to use as uplink.

    So that is definitely our position in terms of the technology. We’ve spent a good bit of time with the GPS industry to make sure that they understood that, and they do, and time will tell how that plays out. But, on the issue of timing, it is also our position that we don’t want to do anything with the spectrum until TLPS is certified and done, nor do we really want to do anything with the spectrum until LightSquared plays itself out and that issue is off the table, because to be associated with that is not a good thing for us.

    So it’s an important asset. It’s an asset that will mean a lot to some company that needs uplink spectrum, but it is not anything that we intend to focus on until after the FCC and after LightSquared is done."

    Your smear campaign isn't working.

  • Globalstar down 6.2% following bearish SA column [View news story]
    Referring to a list of past hit pieces as rationale for yet another does not justify it. Have you ever heard of going out and getting a story? of course that might require some truly journalistic acmen and integrity.

    SA is to financial news what The EIB network is to political news.

    Your argument that you could only find bearish articles on Seeking Alpha as justification for reintroducing them reminds me of the kid at his sentencing hearing for murdering his parents. His argument was "have mercy on me your honor, I'm an orphan".

  • Globalstar down 6.2% following bearish SA column [View news story]
    By: Eric Jhonsa, SA News Editor

    Really? This is news? Providing links to previous bearish articles? Where are the links to previous bullish articles?

    Have you noticed that every one of these bearish articles have comments running 90% against their positions? I think I'll short Seeking Alpha; its obvious their filters don't work at weeding out the garbage spewing from their sources, or editors.

  • Even If Approved, Globalstar's TLPS Will Underperform Free Wi-Fi On (Tens Of) Millions Of Existing Devices [View article]
    Several questions about this article:
    1) why is it on Seeking Alpha? This article only states that the author has noodled over some paperwork and concluded that what the Company is currently actually doing,can't be done.
    2) Wouldn't this article be more apropos in Popular Science? Oh, they have higher standards for who they publish.
    3) Are we really expected to believe that this guy with a short position is more technically savvy than all the engineers in a multi billion dollar corp. and the FCC combined?

  • Globalstar TLPS - You're Kidding, Right? [View article]
    I looked up your Linkedin bio, as you suggested above. Extremely impressed with your educational background. Had never heard of the Enneagram Institute, so I looked up their web page, and found that
    "The Enneagram Institute offers the most comprehensive Enneagram Training Program available anywhere in the world today. Read more about our complete five-part Training Program: Part I, Part II, Part III, The Enneagram and the Inner Critic Workshop (Psychic Structures) or Deeper Into the Psychic Structures—and, for students beginning the Training Program in 2014 and beyond, the Master Class: Practicum on Workshop Teaching.

  • Globalstar: Evaluating Bankruptcy Risk [View article]
    Looking in the rear view mirror doesn't help you see where GSAT is going. Pearson relies on simplistic formulas based on past history, that do not contemplate the impending success of disruptive technology breakthroughs, or the revenue that will be derived when those technologies are implemented.
    Pearson's articles always focus on pointing out individual facts that can create fear, but exclude the positive elements that are the reason most of us invest. Investors recognize risk, but they also recognize potential; and GSAT offers a tremendous risk/reward opportunity.

    This answer proves you are a dimwit. You deny the possibility of an answer. In other words, you and Kerrisdale have all the answers. Talk about hubris!
