It doesn't require any special equipment or special connection.....or does the FCC expect us to not remember all the phone calls from airplanes that successfully connected without difficulty on 9-11, including the especially memorable phone call from Todd Beamer on board United Flight 93...
If memory serves me correctly, that was a low altitude AMPS call made a dozen years ago. Poor example.
AMPS has been sunset in most CMAs. Digital airlinks -- especially those that are single frequency -- operate quite differently. And most calls would be made at or closer to cruising altitude. That case would necessitate a picocell on board.
Please do not post assertions when you do not know what you are talking about...
