    The Ohio News Network (ONN) is a radio service and former television and radio news network in the U.S. state of Ohio. Its studios and offices are co-located with sister station WBNS-TV, the CBS television affiliate for Columbus and central Ohio. ONN is owned by the Dispatch Broadcast Group. ONN provided statewide newscasts for affiliate stations during the day. It is distributed by Radio Sound Network, which is also owned and operated by the Dispatch Group. Radio Sound Network distributes various programming elements for radio stations, including live play-by-play broadcasts of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. ONN also operated a television channel from 1996 to 2012 in more than 1.8 million households statewide. On July 25, 2012, ONN television announced it would be ceasing operations due to changing consumer habits, effective August 31. ONN closed at 12:00 with the last programming being a farewell looking at the history of ONN. The network's radio operations, ONN Radio, have remained in service.

  • Virtual Network Computing

    Virtual Network Computing logo In computing, Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a graphical desktop sharing system that uses the Remote Frame Buffer protocol (RFB) to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network. VNC is platform-independent – there are clients and servers for many GUI-based operating systems and for Java. Multiple clients may connect to a VNC server at the same time. Popular uses for this technology include remote technical support and accessing files on one's work computer from one's home computer, or vice versa. VNC was originally developed at the Olivetti & Oracle Research Lab in Cambridge, United Kingdom. The original VNC source code and many modern derivatives are open source under the GNU General Public License. VNC in KDE 3.1 There are a number of variants of VNC which offer their own particular functionality; e.g., some optimised for Microsoft Windows, or offering file transfer (not part of VNC proper), etc. Many are compatible (without their added features) with VNC proper in the sense that a viewer of one flavour can connect with a server of another; others are based on VNC code but not compatible with standard VNC. VNC and RFB are registered trademarks of RealVNC Ltd. in the U.S. and in other countries.

  • Family Radio Service

    Motorola T5320 FRS handheld radio The Family Radio Service (FRS) is an improved walkie-talkie radio system authorized in the United States since 1996. This personal radio service uses channelized frequencies around 462 and 467 MHz in the ultra high frequency (UHF) band. It does not suffer the interference effects found on citizens' band (CB) at 27 MHz, or the 49 MHz band also used by cordless telephones, toys, and baby monitors. FRS uses frequency modulation (FM) instead of amplitude modulation (AM). Since the UHF band has different radio propagation characteristics, short-range use of FRS may be more predictable than the more powerful license-free radios operating in the HF CB band. Initially proposed by RadioShack in 1994 for use by families, FRS has also seen significant adoption by business interests, as an unlicensed, low-cost alternative to the business band. New rules issued by the FCC in May 2017 clarify and simplify the overlap between FRS and GMRS radio services. Worldwide, a number of similar personal radio services exist; these share the characteristics of low power, operation in the UHF (or upper VHF) band using FM, and simplified or no end-user licenses.
