Re: Going Digital... Ham Radio?



Bob, Jon, John & Lee
     This noon time discussion has been the most stimulating communications
thinking I have seen recently. Along these lines, just point someone like me
to the sources of equipment capable of simply giving me wireless access at
something like my current 28.8 dialup rate (out in the hinterland the only
other choice is PC Direct Sat.;which we use); back to my desktop and I'll
order today. I agree there is much that can be done with current speeds, but
it seems like years ago when I heard of hams playing with higher data rates.
When I was a charter member of TAPR, living in Tucson (W7EGV) I would have
bet we'd be farther along by now.
