Those of us who want the datalink physically disabled should be satisfied soon. Neutering the antenna is better than an "airplane mode" that can lie, anyway.

Thank you for the information and great comments. You are exactly right in saying that "airplane mode" can lie, and I thought about that as I wrote it... I just wanted to keep things simple for the readers as a concept, but you're spot on and my idea of "airplane mode" is neutering the antenna as you describe.
