    At least it was a sanctioned flight. Hard to believe it was communications interference. Sound to me as a hardware failure. We'll never know I guess. Cover you butt with a answered when you don't really know hmmm.

    Sounds to me not a thorough Investigation as it did have 3 flights prior to the crash.

    Radio frequencies have harmonics and sub- harmonics. Ie take the frequency and double it ..repeat...take the frequency and half it ..repeat and keep going! Is a simplistic answer...and somewhere in the numbers is possibly more than one which could be received and affect the signal. Then there is overload...ie proximity to the transmitter....and then.....in fact there are lots of things can affect received signals or block them. Which is why they don't allow phones to be used in commercial passenger planes..although it's changing.
