benz radio code Q&A Review

Why did neither German nor British fighter planes or air defense not shoot down the MB109 that Rudolf Hess flew with to Britain on the 10th of May 1941?

TL: DR Hess did the totally unexpected! Hess had arranged to test fly a Bf 110 fitted with especially long range tanks and filled a bogus flight plan that meant that nobody expected to be in contact with him for hours. He then flew across the North Sea and entered Scottish airspace. He was detected on radar and interceptors were sent up to catch him on the return flight. But, nobody expected either his flight plan or the speed of his aircraft - since the Germans had nothing that fast, with the range to get to Scotland with any chance of returning. By the time the RAF controllers realised how fast his plane was and were taking action Hess had baled out over what he thought was the home of the Duke of Hamilton. There is a good summary here On May 10, 1941, 17:45 Middle European Time (MET), Rudolf Hess took off from Augsburg, Bavaria, in an unarmed aircraft, dressed as a Luftwaffe pilot. His aircraft was a heavy fighter-bomber: Messerschmitt 110 E-1/N, serial/works number 3869, radio code VJ+OQ, equipped with two additional drop-in fuel tanks which extended its operational range to 4,200 km or 10 flying hours. With a wingspan of 53 feet, length of 40 feet, operational ceiling of 34,000 feet, and two Daimler-Benz engines totalling 2,800 HP, the Me 110 had a cruising speed of 420 kph. Just after 22:00, Hess crossed the British coast at Farne Island, and by 23:00 believed he had reached Dungavel House, home of the Duke of Hamilton. At 23:09, unable to locate the landing strip at Dungavel, he bailed out of his aircraft and parachuted into a field at Floors Farm, Eaglesham.“

What happens to the radio and navigation on a Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2011? If the car battery gets changed, do you need a radio code?

Thanks for A2A. We only have a 2008 Merc which has a navigation and on that car I recently changed the battery without any problem. The only thing I lost was the auto folding mirrors and I reset that easily. Not sure if things changed on the 2011 cars. It may be something of the past because my ’96 C Class did need a radio code after removing battery. The car has connectors by the engine bay where you can connect a spare battery while you are replacing the battery. That will save you all the unknown trouble.

Do Mercedes Benz ECUs have batteries or capacitors? They don't lose their memory even after both batteries in the car are disconnected.

This is not unique to Mercedes-Benz. Many devices can have have data stored in a non volatile memory. A simple example is radio station presets on many vehicles. Another example are fault codes that won't “clear” with a battery disconnect.

Are people in the United Kingdom grateful for U.S. companies?

Are people of the US grateful to the British for inventing almost everything that meant those companies even came in to existence? Americans are sometimes quick to take credit for other people's work. For example, if you believe what you see in Hollywood films, the US invented the Enigma machine that changed the course of World War II. The truth is that much of the technology we assume is American really isn't, and many US inventions wouldn't have been possible without foreign innovation. The computer Had Charles Babbage ever built his Analytical Engine, the UK would be the clear winner in this field. He designed the forerunner of today's machines, the first programmable computer, back in 1837. However, it wasn't until the 1930s that his work turned into real machines when Harvard's Howard Aiken took inspiration from Babbage and developed the Harvard Mark I. MIT had created the Differential Analyzer – an analogue calculator – a few years earlier, but as it wasn't a general-purpose machine – its skills started and ended with arithmetic – we'd give the Harvard Mark I the credit for being the first general purpose computer. Then again, if it weren't for us Brits we'd still be using computers to do pretty simple things. Alan Turing, a Cambridge academic, wrote a seminal paper in 1936 ('On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem') that set out the concepts of a universal computing machine. The Americans may have done the building work, but the British were the architects. The digital computer was definitely a British invention, though: Colossus, the code-breaking computer at Bletchley Park, went into service in 1943, and it would be another three years before the US equivalent – ENIAC – was powered up. But wait, there’s more: Throughout history, the British have been responsible for many great inventions and are still commonly acknowledged to be among the best in the world when it comes to inventing. Over the past 50 years, according to Japanese research, more than 40 per cent of discoveries taken up on a worldwide basis originated in the United Kingdom. Many of these British inventions have had an enormous impact on the world. For example, imagine how different life would be today if Michael Faraday had not built the first simple electrical generator or if James Watt had not developed the steam engine? Leading British author Terry Deary has discovered some other pretty spectacular British ‘firsts’, some of which have not been traditionally attributed to the Brits….. 1. Powered flight They say … During 2003, Dayton, Ohio, and the Dayton & Montgomery County Public Library will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers invention of the first powered airplane. The first successful flight occurred on December 17, 1903 at Kill Devil Hills in Kittyhawk, North Carolina. But hang on … the Wrights may have made “The first successful flight” but they could not claim “the invention of the first powered airplane” because Brit Percy Pilcher designed a powered triplane and built it in 1899. By the last day of September 1899, Pilcher’s powered triplane was very nearly ready for flight (save, apparently, for mounting the engine), but on that day Pilcher was gliding in his “Hawk.” His previously reliable “Hawk” suffered a structural failure, fell, and Pilcher died two days later. Pilcher’s powered triplane was never flown. But the “invention” beat the Americans by 4 years. Or maybe it was Bill Frost a Welsh carpenter who patented the aeroplane in 1894 and took to the skies in a powered flying machine the following year (8 years before the Wright brothers). Or maybe the world’s first powered flight took place not in America in 1903, but at Chard in ,Somerset,55 years earlier, and the man who made it happen was John Stringfellow. The electric lightbulb Americans say Thomas Alva Edison invented the light bulb. He began his experiments in 1878 and by 21 October 1879 he made a working electric light bulb. But… Sir Joseph Swan of ,Newcastle, announced that he had made a working light bulb on 18 December 1878 and on 18 January 1879 he gave a public demonstration in Sunderland – 10 months before Edison. The Americans say it was just a working model and not a commercial reality … but then they would say that, wouldn’t they? The telephone Americans say The first telephone message was made at 5 Exeter Place, Boston, Massachusetts on 10 March 1876. Alexander Graham Bell called to his assistant, “Come here, Watson, I want you.” In June that year it was demonstrated at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia and may have passed unnoticed if the Emperor of Brazil hadn’t caused a sensation by crying out, “My God … it talks!” The rest, is history. But… Alexander Graham Bell was born in 1847 in ,Edinburgh,, Scotland. He moved to Canada when he was 23 and only then migrated to the USA. He was British so Brits can rightly claim the telephone is a British invention. Radio According to the US On 23 July 1866 Mahlon Loomis of Washington DC described how to send signals by radio. That October he achieved it in Virginia. In 1896 Guliemo Marconi won even greater fame for sending a wireless telegraph over 94 miles. However… David Edward Hughes, (D.E.Hughes, pictured right), of Corwen (Denbighshire) – is recorded as the Welshman who became the first person in the world to transmit and receive radio waves. Evans, resident of North Wales, designed the synchronous type-printing telegraph in 1856. Yet another British first. History v Hollywood seem to be very different realities. Americans also say The Italian adventurer, Columbus, finally persuaded the Spanish to back an expedition across the Atlantic. They reckon he was the first European to discover America in 1492. But, he wasn’t. In 1170 Welsh prince ,Madog ab Owain Gwynedd,sailed from Wales in search of new lands and reached America. He then returned to Wales to tell his fellow countrymen of the great wonders that he had found. They are believed to have landed at Mobile Bay, Alabama and then travelled up the Alabama river along which there are several forts said by the local Cherokee Indians to have been constructed by “White People”. These structures have been dated to several hundred years before Columbus and are of a similar design to Dolwyddelan Castle. An Indian tribe was discovered in the 18th century called the Mandans. This tribe were described as white men with forts, towns and permanent villages laid out in streets and squares. They claimed ancestry with the Welsh and spoke a language remarkably similar to it. Unfortunately the tribe was wiped out by a smallpox epidemic introduced by traders in 1837. A memorial tablet has been erected at Port Morgan, Mobile Bay, Alabama which reads: “,In memory of Prince Madog, a Welsh explorer, who landed on the shores of Mobile Bay in 1170 and left behind, with the Indians, the Welsh language.,” So forget the Wright Brothers, Marconi, Thomas Edison and Monsieur Guillotin. All they had was good PR. In their own quiet, modest way the Brits were always there first. Just when you thought I’d finished, I haven’t, as there is more… Americans claim that Karl Benz created the first motor car in Germany in 1889. It covered just over half a mile at nine miles per hour. People have been driving Mercedes Benz cars ever since – usually slower than nine miles an hour in rush hour traffic. In fact, 180 years before, in 1711, Christopher Holtum demonstrated a horseless carriage. It gave demonstrations under the piazzas at Covent Garden and travelled at five or six miles an hour. Americans also say… In 1796 the American, James Rumsey, drove a steam-powered boat that worked by pushing out a jet of water. It travelled at 4 mph. It became a popular motor for model boats and the US claimed the first jet-propelled vehicle. But… The great Sir Isaac Newton (pictured right) invented the jet-powered car. He forecast that one day people would travel at 50 miles an hour. In 1680 a man called Gravesande designed a car that would be powered by Newton’s third law of motion – “To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” A boiler sent out a jet of steam that pushed the car along. Of course everyone on the road behind the jet engine would have been scalded, but that’s a small price to pay for progress. The submarine The Americans claimed that in the 1700s David Bushnell created the first usable submersible. It was christened “The Turtle”. It’s purpose was to sneak up on British ships in the American War of Independence and screw a mine into the wooden hull. Unfortunately when it tried to attack HM Eagle the submariners discovered the hull covered in copper. They couldn’t bore into it. The mine went off but the only victims were an unlucky shoal of fish. But… There was an English submarine that was not only demonstrated in the early 1600s but gave a test-ride to King James I. The design was created in 1578 by William Bourne, a mathematician. A Dutchman called Cornelis Drebbel came to London to test it in the Thames. Between 1620 and 1624 he did many tests; his oar-propelled craft worked at depths of five metres for several hours. Even the free trip for the King didn’t get a commission from the Navy! The US did invent the Ferris wheel, on response to France creating the Eiffel Tower, can we consider this a US invention? Well, they didn’t invent the wheel, they didn’t invent the engine, and they certainly needed Isaac Newton’s law of physics to design it. Ah well, we can credit the US Afro Hollywood, then again, Hollywood is based on the Nazi propaganda machine of ww2. The Hot Dog? Oh wait, that’s German. Erm… American football? I guess, but it’s a variation of rugby. Ermmmmm… suggestions?

Why is that nearly all modern inventions come from the US even though Europe is so much older (example: autos, aircraft, radio, TV, electric power to homes, etc.)?

No,you’re wrong. Modern automobile:Karl Benz,Germany (the factory still exist,called Mercedes-Benz) TV:Alexander Baird,Scotland Radio:Guglielmo Marconi,Italy Dynamite:Alfred Nobel,Sweden (his laboratory is now a museum) Naval gun turret: Swedish Engineer John Ericsson (USS Monitor) Railway locomotives:Stephenson brothers,Britain (The rocket),John Ericsson,Sweden (Novelty) Large circle sea navigation:Norsemen from Norway Aircraft:first invented by Leonardo DaVinci,Italy,in 1903 perfected by two American bicycle repairmen Hot air balloon:The Montgolfier brothers,France Jet propulsion:Frank Whittle,United kingdom Jet aircraft:Willy Messerschmitt,Germany Computer:Alan Turing,United Kingdom (the Collosus,can be seen at the museum at Bletchley park code breaking Center) Steam engine:James Watt,Britain Water pump screw type:Archimedes,Greece Water pump piston type (miner pump):Christopher Polhem,sweden And there are lots of more inventions. American inventions: Light bulb,Thomas Edison Revolving pistol:Ezra Collier,Samuel Colt The Ford Edsel:Henry Ford Actually most inventions where not made in the USA,not even the nuclear weapon (was actually invented by a german Jew called Albert Einstein…) Soo,when you guys was doing this: The people in Europe built this: The Cugnot locomobile.

Which are some of the most magnificent pictures taken in F1?

1. A Podium picture that looked the same, though it wasn't totally. This one is not a picture of some official F1 source. It is one that I had made myself by joining two photographs. Though such things occur pretty frequently in this sport, being a Scuderia Ferrari fan, I found this a rather welcome coincidence, if I should term it that way. The upper picture shows Fernando Alonso in a Renault livery, Michael Schumacher in Ferrari and Kimi Raikkonen in McLaren in the 2005 Bahrain GP; McLaren carried the Mercedes Benz Engine and was the stronger offering of the German engine on the grid. In the lower half of the picture we have Fernando in Ferrari, Kimi in Lotus, which took over the Renault team, and Michael Schumacher in the Mercedes livery at the 2012 GP of Europe in Valencia. The interesting point here is, obviously, that all the three have driven for Ferrari, and Michael and Kimi had already won the championships for Scarlets and Fernando took over the lead in championship standing of 2012 from Vettel. 2. Kimi Raikkonen goes wheel-to-wheel with Michael Schumacher in Brazil 2012. In Brazil 2012, we saw Kimi Raikkonen go wheel-to-wheel against MichaelfSchumacher to create a magnificent spectacle for the fans to behold. In the inset image we can see how close these two got, and the best part was they were done with the move without as far as a peck on the tyre of each other. This was probably one of the best moves executed on track. At those speeds, a normal person would fumble to find a nerve to go straight while these two managed to make an overtaking move on a corner. Of course Kimi was magnificent in the execution of the overtaking manoeuvre, Schumacher's impeccable control cannot be overlooked. Two World Champions display one more time after innumerable times before, why they are considered amongst some of the best that the sport has ever seen. 3. A gloomy podium in Malaysia 2013 In a rather recent outing, in Malaysia 2013, reigning World Champion, Sebastian Vettel defied team orders and overtook teammate Mark Webber, who had been leading the race for the most part and was in for a win. Sebastian, although having recieved team orders to hold station and let Mark take the win, goes for an overtaking move on the Australian and after an audacious move down the start/finish straight and some vehement battling from Mark, snatches the pole position from his teammate to stand at the central pedestal. Meanwhile, running 3rd and 4th, Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are directed to hold station and let Lewis take the podium. Nico Rosberg, who was carrying more speed than his teammate would have easily passed the Briton had the team radio not crackled up to life in the final sectors of the race. However, Nico was promised a return of the favour, and with Monaco, looks like things are settled. But on that day, we had seen that neither Lewis nor Nico was very glad to have done this. Thanks to them being teammates in the past, Lewis and Nico never had a big row about it. On the other hand, though, things were not very happy in the World Champion team garage. We saw Mark Webber coming into the pre-podium driver's room fuming with anger and shouting at Vettel, "Multi 21! Multi 21!", the RBR code for "Hold Station" and a rift followed the event garnished with rumours about Mark taking a retirement before the subsequent event in China. We did see Mark in China, but not for a long time though. The events that followed kept on making the situations gloomier for the Australian in Austrian outfit. The ineteresting point here is, that, while on the podium none of the three was particularly, happy, to be on the podium. Well, may be Vettel was, but he did a good job at hiding his smile for then. This was perhaps one of the most gloom-faced podium trio we've ever seen. Edit 1 - Well, I never knew this happened, stumbled upon this particular image rather recently and found it amusing to be shared on Quora. Formula One Taxi - 3 drivers, riding on one car. Stefan Johansson, Rene Arnoux, and Phillippe Alliot ride Nelson Piquet's Williams after switching over from Alliot's Ligier once it runs out of fuel, just after the finish of the 1986 Mexican Grand Prix. Here is the youtube video; and yes, I have stolen the details and the heading from the video.

Is it true that armoured trucks have a panic button which alerts police in the event of a robbery?

Yes, they do, although ones I had experience with did not have such a thing. We used European Mercedes-Benz armored vans to transport cash to ATMs or banks. There were always two or three security officers in the van armed with handguns (sometimes one of them also had shotgun) and equiped with radio so they could communicate with dispatcher. If there was a robbery attempt, one of them would immidiately notify dispatcher with radio (we used codes similar to American ten-codes). Van also had GPS tracking system so the dispatcher would see if it went off course. And also each of security officers had a cell phone. This means that such a panic button would not be necessary. Nowdays many vehicles have them installed, beside other security apparatus (4G and GPS monitoring, speed detection, etc.). I am not sure if it would alert the police, most likely it would alert dispatcher. There always is a dispatcher who monitors armored vehicle and maintains radio contact with it.

How much does it cost to get a code or to fix the anti-theft protection for the radio on a Mercedes Benz GL450?

I’ve had the same issue with my E class. I went to the local Mercedes-Benz dealer, took my car’s registration together with my identification and they gave the pin code free of charge to me.

How do radio stations measure audience size?

How do radio stations track how many people are tuned in to the station? Well, there’s actually no way for a ,broadcast, radio station to ever know ,exactly, how many people are listening at any given time. Broadcasting (in its traditional, over-the-air sense) is a one-way medium. The broadcast signal goes out from the antenna, to your radio or TV, but nothing is sent back. Your radio or TV is merely a receiver; it is not a transmitter. So a radio station has absolutely no way of knowing how many radios are tuned-in at any given time, where those radios are, or how many people are listening to each radio. The best we can do is try to come up with ,estimated, audience sizes. In the United States, companies like Nielsen and Eastlan produce “ratings” reports by surveying random samples of people in each radio market. The companies call random phone numbers in the hopes of finding people who will agree to be a part of the ratings survey. When people answer the phone, the ratings company will ask some basic questions to determine if the household is suitable; for example, if anyone in the household works for radio, TV or any other “media affiliated” company, that household is disqualified. In some markets, Nielsen will offer people cash for participation. Sometimes, if they are coming up short with participants in a certain demographic (be it ethnicity, race or age group), they might offer a slightly higher cash incentive for participation. When radio ratings first started, and to this day in many smaller markets, each participating household would be mailed a packet of ratings “diaries” — one per person age 12 and up. Each person would be asked to keep a log of their radio listening habits. Anytime they stay tuned to a given station for 5 minutes or longer, they are supposed to write it down. Households are asked to begin logging from a specific Thursday through the following Wednesday, the mail their diaries back. Obviously, there’s one big issue with diary method: you have no way of knowing if a person diligently completed the log in real-time, or if they only filled it in once at the end of each day (or the end of the week). Realistically, chances are most people do NOT complete their diary in real-time, given that a lot of radio listening happens while driving. This is why radio stations so often give their name, frequency, call letters or other means of identifying the station — they want to drill “Kiss 103.4” or “Q-98.8” in your head so that you remember it when you sit down to complete your ratings diary. Maybe you split your listening between two similar stations, but if you can only remember one name, that’s likely the one you’ll write down. In some markets, ratings are going on year-round. In smaller markets, ratings only happen for 12 weeks in the spring and 12 weeks in the fall. This is why you might notice lots of stations suddenly coming up with big prize contests at the same time, and why they sometimes have bigger prizes on Thursdays. They figure if they can get you tuning-in on Thursday, they might get you to fill in that station the first day you do the diary (while it’s still a “novelty”) and also maybe hook you for the entire week. The other problem with the diary is that it can take quite a long time to get the results (because actual people have to read all the diaries, and figure out how to credit stations, especially when people write down vague responses), and those results are usually fairly generalized. For example, you might get an estimate on how many people listen to your station during morning drive or afternoon drive, but you won’t get minute-by-minute readings on how many people were listening to a certain “bit” the morning team did on a specific day, or how many people heard a certain commercial that aired at 2:36pm on Monday. The best you can do with the diary is a general idea of how many people were listening from 2:30 to 3:00, for example. In larger markets, where more money is on the line, Nielsen sends out “portable people meters” (PPMs) to ratings households. These are about the size of a pager, so they can be clipped to one’s belt or other garments, as they are intended to be carried by the person all day. Stations in PPM markets embed special audio codes within their programming. The codes can be detected by the PPM, but (if embedded properly) not by the human ear. The PPM is intended to keep track of every station the person is hearing throughout the day. The PPM offers real-time data, so stations can see if people are tuning out at the exact time commercial breaks begin, or even if there are certain songs that drive people away. And because it’s all electronic, stations can get those results the next day. Still, at the end of the day, whether you’re in a PPM market or a diary market, neither system is perfect. Nielsen and its competitors can only survey so many people in the market. There’s no way they could measure radio listening for every single person across the country. So, they have to consider the ages, genders and ethnicities of those who participated, and extrapolate the data to make it representative of the total population of the market. As a result, some specific diaries or PPMs may be weighted more heavily than others. One specific person’s listening habits could wind up representing a thousand people. We know there’s no way 1000 people listened to the exact same stations at the exact same times as that one PPM or diary holder, but since there’s no way to get data on all 1,000 people, this is what we’ve accepted as the “next best thing.” That being said, the internet has changed things somewhat. Any station that offers a live stream online (whether it’s a broadcast station or an internet-only station) can detect exactly how many devices are connected to the stream at any given time. However, even that isn’t as accurate as it may seem at first. Just because a device is connected to your stream, doesn’t mean anyone is listening. Someone could have started the stream, then walked away or fell asleep. On the other hand, maybe there are actually 10 or 20 people listening/watching together, but your streaming server only sees the one device that’s connected. A department store could be piping a music stream to it’s PA system, with 500 shoppers hearing it, but you don’t see 500 connections on your server, you just see one. One reason audience size is important: stations sell advertising and they need to be able to tell sponsors who is listening. The “money demographic” for most advertisers is women, ages 25–54. Some stations appeal more toward men, maybe younger, maybe older. Advertisers seeking specific demographics want to know who is listening: will their money be well spent, or will their messages be falling on deaf ears? Knowing there are 50 people listening to a stream is nice, but doesn’t tell you anything ,about, those people. Are they mostly teens who’d be interested in ads for soda and fast food, or older people with more disposable income, who might be good targets for brands like Lexus and Mercedes-Benz?

What could be wrong? My 2008 Mercedes Benz C300 won't start so I ran a diagnostic test and I got this error message "lost communication with fuel pump" do I need d to replace the fuel pump or could it be something else. Need help please

I would start by checking the fuses/relays. If these are okay try disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes (as long as you have the radio codes available) and re-connect and try again. If still no good then definitely I would suspect a bad or broken connection at the fuel pump or within the wiring OR a faulty fuel pump. Hope this helps, good luck.
