Hi Tony and group. This mail got me thinking.

Just consider the implications... You could set up a network of sat-capable
stations around the globe and work through birds even if they were not above
your horizon! My only fear would be the often-substandard audio quality
offered by the Internet...

Also, I guess it could lead to abuse by non-licensed operators, and could be
seen as the lazier members of the fraternity taking advantage of others'
good will.

Nevertheless, the two technologies could complement themselves in a most
interesting manner....
