The IOOK Technology Center

Announces New Cell Phone Technology

posted 3/19/11





As you know, the technology center elves are busy preparing for Day to n .

We finally have the base technology completed, and the cell phone pro to type is built.

As advertised, the following features are the main elements of the phone:  

  1. Powered by the DOS 7.0 OS. Stable, reliable, and reprogrammable by the consumer. Makes available the incredible features built in to the phone.
  2. 5G capability. Fully backward compatible with 3G and 4G, but much more capable.
  3. Au to matic sensing of the various cell phone company pro to cols, so it will work on any of the cell phone systems, including foreign. Will au to matically select the carrier affording the best signal, and will switch between carriers, without loosing the connection!
  4. Equipped with the Technology Center proprietary “Snaggle to oth”. Totally compatible with Blue to oth, but far more capable. Does not need the interface to be built in to any display device, as it couples directly to the display’s microprocessor. So the consumer can display video, internet, etc. on any nearby display device (ipad, flat screen, TV, etc.). Eliminates the need for a built in display, and saves battery life!
  5. Last, but not least, the access interface (rotary dial) is completely “user friendly” requiring no learning curve. And is ergonomically friendly to the growing baby boomer generation that is loosing eyesight and having trouble with finger dexterity, so they are being left out of the Smartphone onslaught.

Read on. You will be amazed by what we have accomplished.

I solicit your ideas of any other features we should highlight, or offer in our product. The Technology Center public relations department is preparing the advertising posters, and brochure, to be handed out at Day to n . So we need your ideas.

Below I offer several views of the IOOK Tech Center cell phone to be unveiled at HamVention 2011.

Above is the phone’s POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) configuration.

In this configuration, the cell phone is used with the cradle, and the cradle is plugged in to the wall telephone outlet. The cell phone’s DOS.7 operating system detects the telephone company landline signal, and disables the cellular features, leaving rotary dial capability only. However, while plugged in this way, the cradle recharges the cell phone batteries. Should the landline telephone service be interrupted, the DOS 7.0 OS au to matically reverts to cell phone operation, enjoying all the cell phone features described below.

One attractive feature of this cell phone is that the ergonomic design focuses on simplicity. There are no confusing screens to distract the user, and the numerals for dialing are extremely easy to recognize, a feature of importance for those experiencing reduced vision due to illness, or advancing age (as affects the large number of baby boomers flooding our society).

For advanced users, the phone’s “Snaggle to oth” interface (an IOOK Technology Center proprietary development, fully backwards compatible with Blue to oth) allows the DOS 7.0 operating system to connect with any Snaggle to oth or Blue to oth enabled device (ipad, flat screen & associated computer, etc) for shared display of video, internet, cellular apps, etc. Snaggle to oth is also 100% WiFi capable. In restricted circumstances all these capabilities combine to allow use of any nearby television receiver as a display. For important email and text message reception and transmission, dialing 999 enables the DOS 7.0 OS’s voice- to -text, and text- to -voice features, allowing the user to compose messages verbally. Should a display screen be available (as mentioned above) all text material (received and transmitted) will appear on the screen.


Above is the cell phone in its normal travel configuration. In this configuration, the phone operates through its internal antenna.  The IOOK Tech Center has proven that the superconducting internal antenna does not suffer (as do other cell brands) of poor cellular connections due to how the phone is held.  The cell phone is 5G enabled (fully backwards compatible with 3G and 4G systems).  The telephone cord is removable for fully portable operation; however the POTS capability is available for use when at a hotel or fixed QTH.  The POTS capability without the cradle still allows the cell phone to recharge.  The owner can travel anywhere and recharge the phone while also using it routinely. The DOS 7.0 operating system continuously moni to rs the cell frequencies in order to permit au to matic switchover to cellular use if the cell signal is stronger than the landline dial to ne detected through the telephone cord.  It also senses the strongest cellular signal (regardless of cell service carrier) and switches to that carrier au to matically, including foreign cell phone pro to cols).  The user thus has access to Verizon, Sprint, or other carrier present.


Above is the cell phone configured in its “extended range” configuration.  With the rubber duck antenna, cell communication ranges are extended, as receive and transmitted signals of the phone are increased by 9 db, allowing considerable improvement in cellular connectivity in poorly covered cell areas.  All the operating advantages of the DOS 7.0 OS (Snaggle to oth, WiFi, ) are in operation in this mode.


Pictured above is the cell phone with its RG58 pigtail (included in the premier package).  This is the cell DX configuration.

This is truly a revolutionary capability, available only through the IOOK Technology Center .  The pigtail allows the user to connect to any available DX antenna.  As the DOS 7.0 OS senses a complex impedance different from the rubber duck, the internal au to matic antenna tuning system immediately adjusts for an SWR of 1.3 or less, at the cellular operating frequency detected by the antenna.  Snagle to oth senses the operating characteristics of the cellular network (CDMA, UDMA. Etc) or networks received.  The OS interprets the received spectrum and identifies the country or countries accessed through this DX feature, and announce them to the opera to r (through dialing 666 on the rotary dial).  In this manner, the opera to r can communicate directly with the selected cellular network in the country accessed through DX.


Last but not least, above is the cellular phone in its  extended range configuration, equipped with the phone’s DC mobile charger.  This configuration provides the maximum flexibility for the frequent traveler.  The cell phone’s OS adjusts the phone to accept 6, 12, 24, and 48 V DC for charging the phone.  Therefore the phone can be recharged while driving a vintage au to , normal au to mobiles, a variety of hybrid and all electric cars, as well as general aviation platforms.  Obviously, by swapping the corresponding attachments (antenna, line cord, etc.) the phone remains usable while charging.
