Hmm, would you like to move Down Under?  We'd certainly like to network with
you, but it might be a bit of a long haul for the first experimental link
from Melbourne (Australia) to Bedford. :-)

That's what we've worked out too.

The birds are a good first choice for international forwarding.  Might take
enough heat off to allow HF to be used for real time data on international
links.  Or perhaps something could also be rigged up to take advantage of
P3D when it's in the right positions to supplement full time HF links.
