why was it necessary for rodney to fly the jumper up to the control room to dial the gate
if i remember correctly in sg1 s8 they dialed a gate on the other side of the globe with a puddle jumper so whats a 1000ft or so

Didn't quite get that either, and the puddlejumpers can dial spacegates without any problem and i doubt they're always within a few hundred ft from them when they dial..

maybe there's protocol features for the Atlantis Gate? So that the ancients didn't just dial a gate from the underwater bay/ tower bay for fun all the time. So they have to be real close to the control room to dial

The writers wanted to have the shot of the jumper flying up from the water. :cool:

Hm...possibly. Maybe there's some kind of shield or plating that pevents dialing from too far away.

Oh...I was the one that kept dialing the Gate for fun. My fault! :D
