Re: Evan Tanner Dead

It's a shame from a early pioneer in the sport

That sounds odd. Does anyone know how far you can be and still get cell coverage? I guess he could have walked the wrong way. Really sad. I always enjoyed watching him fight and hearing his interviews.

Re: Evan Tanner Dead

I don't know - I've used my cell phone in the middle of the desert when driving to and from Vegas or when driving up north. They said he was about 45 miles from a town.

I'm no "techie" but it is my understanding that text messages are easier to send/receive than email and regular calls.

Re: Evan Tanner Dead

They are. And you can get some incredibly good range. People have successfuly used cell phones in fairly remote areas. Definitely sad that he died. We'll probably never find out how it all occured.

It really depends on the company he is with. CDMA 1800 (Verizon/Sprint) are not going to broadcast as well as Global systems for Molbile Comm. (GSM) 1800/900 (AT&T). iden 400 wich is what Nextel used to be before they went hybrid with sprint, would have the best chance of making that kind of range.

TXT is what is called half duplex cummincation (one way at a time) so yeah you are right SMS/TXT would have a better chance. I still think its pretty darn easy to get out of cell coverage areas when you get to the rual places that Evan was going.

Evan was one of my favorites. He did many many many good things for MMA and tried many different things in life in general. It seems like he lived well.
