"The six TV engineers"

The notion of 'thousands of victims' was crucial to generate universal public outrage. However, having 3000 angry families breathing down their necks was never part of the perps' demented plan. Our ongoing analyses and investigations suggest that NO one died on 9/11.

"The six TV engineers"

Postby Postal44 on August 10th, 2010, 9:46 pm

ADMIN NOTE: I have merged 3 threads into one - all about the alleged
"TV ENGINEERS WHO WORKED AND DIED ON TOP OF WTC1"...

*****************************************************************************simon



I didn't know where to put this, so if someone thinks it should be in a different place, feel free to move it.

This is from the WPIX website about Steve Jacobson, which can be found here, http://www.wpix.com/community/wpix-lost ... 7713.story.

What are some things you notice about this article? Perhaps one of the things you notice is that this article was written/posted on August 26, 2008, about 7 years after 9/11, the day he "died".

Another thing caught my eye is that he was a 22 year veteran of WPIX and had spent 175,000 hours working at the WTC. That number seemed a bit high to me, so I divided it by 24, to get days, and then divided it by 365 to get years. Apparently this guy was a workaholic or something, because during his 22 years, he apparently worked for nearly 20 years straight. That's 24 hours a day for 19.977 years. No wonder they only had an accumilated total of less than 2 hrs of downtime.

Another thing that got my attention was this, "As an indication of Steve's dedication to the job, during the 1993 bombing of WTC, he stayed on the job until midnight, enduring heavy smoke conditions until the fire was put out". I know that smoke rises, but are we really supposed to believe that smoke from a bomb in a subbasement parking lot made it's way up to the 110th floor, enough to call it "heavy"? That just seems quite implausable to me.

The best part is at the bottom of the article, ""We will never forget you, Steve."". Well, atleast not anymore. Sorry about the previous 7 years.

Concerning his working during the 1993 bombing of the WTC, I found this http://www.wrkl.org/vol3issue7.pdf It's a .pdf file of a Union Newsletter. On page 7 of the .pdf is the paragraph concerning what happened in 1993.

"On the Friday in 1993 when the World Trade Center was bombed, Bill was on his way home, ready to
begin his weekend. He turned around and came back into the city, and waited down on the street with a
handful of others from NBC. Channel 4 was off the air, and Bill would be the one to get it back on, ASAP.
Around 10:30 that evening, police and fire officials escorted the broadcasters back in the building. Elevator
service only went as far as the 78th floor, so the group walked up over 20 flights of stairs to reach the
transmitter room. Bill led the entourage inside, started warming up the transmitters, and then discovered
that computers had set the antenna switches in a kind of ass-backward configuration before power went out
earlier in the day. They'd never work in that mode. He quickly figured out which switches he'd have to turn
by hand to get the station's signal back on the air, and did just that."

For one, he apparently didn't work until midnight, unless they just forgot to mention that he started again at 10:30pm. Second, if he was already off work and came back, that's going to eat into his 175,000 hours of work time. Third, if there was "heavy smoke" up to top of the building, I doubt they would have let anyone back in. Quite contradictory I would say.

Ludicrous. They built a 100 story building in the 1970s, but didn't install elevators to the top? No business would lease space that high without elevators all the way up. What customer would choose to eat at the Windows On The World (?) restaurant if he had to walk up the last 20 stories?

This "Union Newsletter" is so stupid it's hardly worth analyzing.

Most of the time he worked alone at WTC. Under those circumstances, it was important that he showed the initiative to keep on top of things, to assure high quality and reliable operation. In 175,000 hours at the WTC since 1981, less than 2 hours of cumulative air time were lost due to transmitter malfunction



My take on that statement is that there were 175,00 hours of transmitting time since 1981.

Page 13 of that "Union Newsletter" make's interesting reading. Alleged members who perished on 9/11. We know all these names were fake. So now we have a Union involved in back stopping the names of vicsims.

Wonder what Union Jonathon Briley (falling man) & the Restaurant workers from 'Windows', were supposed to have been members of.

That does make a lot more sense. I took it to be about him since the article was about him.

Acutally, from what I've been able to find, there were only 5 other engineers, 6 total. So that sentence on the WNBC wiki page is erroneous as far as I can tell.

As luck would have it, I stumbled upon 3 different pages with names of the 6 enginneers that "died" in WTC1 on 9/11. Here's the pages:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wpix-911.jpg

http://www.ab9il.net/new-york/tv-september11.html

http://www.necrat.us/NYCTV.html (pictures associated with the names)(have fun Ozzy)

So here are the names:

Donald DiFranco (WABC-TV)
Steven Jacobson N2SJ (WPIX)
William Steckman WA2ACW, WNBC TV
Isaias Rivera (CBS)
Bob Pattison (WCBS)
Gerard "Rod" Coppola KA2KET, WNET TV

For the most part, with only slight differences, like Don instead of Donald, all these names appear on all thress sites, so I guess it's safe to assume that these are the 6 engineers who occupied the 110th floor on 9/11. I really would have thought that there would have been a lot more people up there to run the equipment, and maybe that's what "they" hoped everyone would think, or better yet, wouldn't think about at all, and would just "assume" subconscienely.

So if my math is correct, instead of missing 493, we are now missing 494 names of people who "died" in or above the impact zone.

He is one of the engineers that "died" on 9/11. I was doing some googling just a little while ago and suddenly it hit me. I had been reading about him the day before but it hadn't clicked.

In everything I had read about William Steckman,where it was mentioned, he worked "the graveyard shift". I did a search for the definition of "graveyard shift", just to be sure that what I understood it to mean was what everyone else understands it to mean. I checked it at these places:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&clie ... d=0CBIQkAE

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/graveyard+shift

http://www.answers.com/topic/shift-work

All of the definitions agree that "graveyard shift" means between midnight and 8am. Get where I'm going with this yet?

This page says that he worked the "graveyard shift":

http://www.wrkl.org/vol3issue7.pdf

This one says "night shift", but I take it to mean "graveyard shift" : http://www.nytimes.com/2001/09/26/natio ... CKMAN.html

It also says that he was called and asked to stay past his shift, which ended at 6am. Wouldn't his shift ended at 8am, like every other graveyard shift? Or did he actually work the night shift, which is generally 4pm to midnight? I'm sure there are some companies who can, for whatever reason, make up there own shift times, but I don't see any shift being called "night shift" or "graveyard shift" going past 8am. Since there is only one sentence on that one page that I've seen in all the pages I read about William Steckman that mentions him being asked to work longer, can we assume it's not true? All indications leading up to that day don't make it any different than any other day, and I haven't seen any mention of "new equipment" being put in on that day, except for one sentence in that one article, which sure seems as if it was put in there to explain why a person who should have been off work at 8am, at the latest, was still at work 46 minutes (give or take a couple of minutes) later when the first whatever it is was hit WTC1. On no other page or article I have read has there been a mention of equipment being put in on that day, or any other reason for him to have been there past his usual time.

Another thing I found weird about the story of William Steckman was his prostate cancer.

On this page http://www.voicesofseptember11.org/dev/ ... 1073874121 it sure sounds to me as if William Steckman was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 1966, apparently took time off from work, and came back to work in 1997. That has got to be the slowest recovery ever, 31 years to beat the cancer, not to mention, what did he live on for that 31 years? Did his wife work? Did he have the most phenomenal insurance ever? Did he have Aflac?

Oh wait, on this page http://www.wrkl.org/vol3issue7.pdf , towards the bottom of the first page, we see that he only was gone from work from the summer of 1995 to the fall of 1995. So just a few months to beat the cancer. That's quite a difference. Not to mention that the first page I linked was supposedly written by the President of NBC, who apparently has no concept of time, and no idea when his friend came back to work after having battled cancer.

“Shortly after I joined the station in 1966, Bill Steckman was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Now he won that battle and came back to work in January 1997.”

That's funny!


The guy worked beyond hometime because he was an ace employee or because the ops screwed the times, like they screwed so much other detail, God bless em. I say they didn't give too much for the details of this fiction. But hey, maybe they meant to screw with our minds.

ImageImage
These two have identical brow and ear and are almost certainly drawn from the same template, yet look like two completely different messed up heads. Ace work.

http://www.wrkl.org/vol3issue7.pdf Document carries an image of Bill wearing some kind of brain control unit strapped to the back of his head. I think he might have been CIA.

Hi Janice. I got your email and of course will never forget! And my thoughts and best wishes go with you. I'm already here in the guest book (now on page 24 today, 1-16-2002 post, early days of the memorial). Since then, some of my photos - of Steve among them - are in the WTC Tribute Center across the street, and I have up a tribute online, at http://www.fenichel.com/N2SJ.shtml
Michael Fenichel, New York, New York

(Hi Mike, never forget to do your annual moody tributes?.. Janice Friedlander, sister)

Michael Fenichel posts three images of Steven, including this one.

Image
At NY4Z's wedding, September 2000. Photograph Copyright ? 2000-2005 M Fenichel

Persuasive? Has that 9/11 composition, ghastly lighting, and is that a 9/11 wide-cheeked smile under that beard (think Gordy Amooth ? But it is remarkably detailed and life-like for the 9/11 computer graphics team. Found through legacy's archive of the undead and swimming in seas of fakery, so I'm not wondering why I ever doubted the government yet, but why go to these lengths for Steve? I can’t understand why the image comes so late in the day (Sept 2009), and onto this blog when no other image is available online (as far as I've found). Did Janice fall out with Time Warner?

I went back to this an hour later to look more closely at Mr. Fenichel’s blog site, found the link to 'Dr. Mike’s Homepage', and laughed. http://www.fenichel.com/drmike.shtml

Psychology, Photography & Internet Fun!! :D


Check out the trauma page, http://www.fenichel.com/trauma.shtml Oh my lore. How exactly is this guy connected to Janice and family, Legacy.com, and screwing with the global head?

Like others, I extend my prayers and thoughts to his family. I did know Steve, and do know how important he was, and is, to his community, his synagogue, the pursuit of ham radio and public service... and what a great (and funny!) guy he was. :-( My web tribute to him is at http://www.fenichel.com/N2SJ.shtml I will put a link back to here. Thanks to the Times staff for capturing his spirit! (But I've got some better photos!) :-) Peace and healing, all....
Michael Fenichel,


There is a little image of SJ on the Legacy pages. Seems that Mr. Fenichel's 'better photo' is a better version of that one!!

Peace and healing, Mike :rolleyes:

A quick pic comparison continuing the work of Postal44 in undoing any reality factor associated with these six identities.

(Btw, Steve J’s thumbnail is back on at NYT’s trib stored at Legacy).

Other images of Gerard Coppola. From CNN, telebroadcast.com, In Memorial, and Eddie Ciletti's private blog. Mr. Ciletti is a tech engineer who writes for Mix, a corp music industry mag controlled by Penton. He writes "I did not know them but they were my brothers." . Of the Six, only Coppola appears on the In Memorial list. The four sites contain no other images not already displayed on this page.

ImageImageImage Image

One template, or a man with fixed brows and facial creases? It's hard to see but looks like he changed his tie between pics 2 and 3.

And Robert Pattison (from CNNC on the left, Eddie C on right.) Moustaches were a real headache for this bunch, this one opaque turning into skin on the left. He retains some similarities, (neck, nose, cheek dimple??) but the ear changes radically, and the character transforms from Hitler Youth to Man U' captain 1978. 'Morphy and unreliable' at best.

Re: THE 9/!! TV ARCHIVES

NEW YORK—Bill Steckman was working on Tuesday morning, Sept. 11, 2001, shortly before 9 o'clock. But unlike thousands of others in the North Tower of the World Trade Center, the WNBC-TV transmitter engineer was not just reporting to work. Instead, he had already finished his regular overnight shift and remained at his post a bit longer to help install some new digital equipment.

Minutes after the tower was hit by a commercial jetliner, Steckman was able to get word out by phone of the encroaching smoke on the 104th floor—half of which WNBC-TV shared with financial bond trader Cantor Fitzgerald.


Nota Bene: There's a charitable fund created to help the families of the "six dead TV engineers" in 9/11, as in the case of many others "victims":

"In the days immediately following the 9/11 attacks, the charitable arm of the Society of Broadcast Engineers created the Broadcast Engineer Relief Fund to help the families of the six men. Don DiFranco of WABC was an active SBE member.

"With donations from many members of SBE, and vendors and industry foundations, we were pleased to send checks of $42,500 each to every family… without any strings attached," said SBE President Vinny Lopez. "Every penny [raised] went directly to the families."

Also, the New York chapter of NABET-CWA, Local 16, had set up a Scholarship Fund in memory of DiFranco, which continues today. Donated funds are used for scholarships for offspring of Local 16 members to pursue technical degrees at Staten Island Community College."


The tale of Bill Steckman's death, the emotional story of a media worker who "sacrificed" his life in 9/11 in order to help the broadcasting of the event being done, was used by Swanson just before telling his catchphrase (3:40):

"The reality is that media did a great job on 9/11"


Also is interesting another great phrase of Swanson (4:40):

"The media cooperated with shared resources and forgot about whether we were competitors and not to get that job done".

Sure they did.

And at the end of the speech, Swanson gave Brewster Kahle two tapes with the infamous Fox 5 "9/11 live coverage", the medley of the pool of images used by others networks with the deletion of WNYW's "Nose-Out" and the infamous "Aziz Ellahan interview" as historical highlights.


Not drifting to far of the archives subject.

He had installed a camera and intercom outside the front door, viewable from his basement work room he could talk to people who visited. Bill had created what nowadays would be considered an early version of Skype.


Yes thats right folks, The man pretty much invented the video program skype. :lol: And there is not ONE home video of him anywhere?????? Only just a few candid "photos"....
Take the equinox challenge and bring forth ANY home video or any video footage of the 9/11 Victims 3000 ( times minimal 3 home videos some where on the planet) .... 9000 should be out there at least! ... Should be an easy task. B)
