Mobile Coverage & Signals In Central Park

26 Sep

In Regards to MetroPCS:
It’s Wholly Owned by T Mobile & the T Mobile Signal & Data were strong 4G LTE. Hey, coverage via Bambuser.com was strong.

Verizon Wireless:
Complaints from users in Central Park were rather numerous, as the Network may have been overcrowded. Trying to transmit Data from Central Park was a chore during the Papal Procession in Central Park. Then again, You Tube was overcrowded.

AT&T was busy. Sprint, well, STILL SUCKS. Text Messaging flowed all around the World from Central Park. I received a text from Europe & responded, as the Message came from AC 917.

This is the Big Difference between Pope Saint John Paul II’s Masses in both Aqueduct Race Track & Central Park. None of us had Smartphones, nor Text Messaging in 1995.

But, This Papal Visit is one for the books and one wonders just how did we do without these conveniences.

We just did!

Deo Gratias!

What Didn’t Exist At The 1995 Papal Visit Of Pope Saint John Paul II

24 Sep

EWTN was NOT on Cable in NYC.
There were NO Smartphones.
SMS(Text Messaging, Two Way) was a Year Away. So was OMNIPOINT Communications.
Email was only sent from Laptops & Bigger Computers.
Wi Fi Hot Spots didn’t exist.

The Brooklyn Diocesan Prayer Channel carried EWTN’s Coverage.

2008 was when Smartphones began to proliferate. The Motorola Moto was capable of carrying Mobi TV. While on a train to Boston’s Fenway Park, I viewed the MSNBC Coverage of Pope Benedict XVI at Ground Zero.

2015 is when I received my Ticket to the Papal Central Park Procession by email as a PDF. I now have the ability to webcast it live over aroamingcatholicny’s Channel on Bambuser. Think of this as Homemade Coverage, live from NYC’s Famed Central Park.

And I thought back to 1979 when both of my Parents were Alive, then to 1995 when Pop was alive & was choked up with emotion. Both have passed on & now I will head into Manhattan for another Papal Visit.

In Nomini Patris, Et Filli et Spiritu Sancti, Amen!

In 1995 & 2015 & Papal Visits To NYC

18 Sep

I was at the Supreme Council Knights Of Columbus RC Diocese of Brooklyn Pontifical Solemn High Mass at Aqueduct Race Track in South Ozone Park, Queens. I was also at the Central Park RC Archdiocese of New York Pontifical High Mass. The Primary Celebrant was His Holiness, Pope Saint John Paul II.
These Tickets arrived by Fed Ex to my home. But for the Papal Procession at Central Park, I received the ticket in the form of a PDF via email.
20 Years between Papal Events & so much has changed. But, now two Popes Later, the delivery has changed, but seeing Pope Francis in Central Park, the Prayers go forward and the Memories will be Many.
Just like with Pope Saint John Paul II!

Deo Gratias!
