As to jump flash, I don't think there's anything on it officially, except a bit here or there to add confusion. It has been hashed out quite regularly in the forums. (Lots of good different interpretations, btw. I don't have a problem with yours at all.) Only question might be - if all jump flashes aren't the same (jump requires different energy levels based on distance and size), then can it tell you ship size or distance jumped/jumping? Oh, and is there an entrance flash? (EDIT: Oop! You answer that one in the IC thread. )

I didn't realize the timing on that broadcast. He is less than a light second out from us, so lag would hardly be noticeable.
TNE's Regency Sourcebook explicitly allows you to read an outgoing ship's flash, reverse engineer their course from it, and follow. In the ref's library data
