People who do shortwave radio listening as a hobby, listen to pilots flying over Brazil, have known about the communications ''black hole'' in the Amazon for many years now. I am one of those listeners, who more than once heard pilots pleading to other pilots flying in their region for communication ''bridges'' because air traffic controllers could not hear them.
