Re: Internet/Satellite link?

So, how do we distinguish between what is still Ham Radio, and what is
not? That is ground we cover every day as an evolving hobby. The internet
has a great role to play in our communications as well. IP connections to
repeaters in other places around the world sounds like something I would
like to try. To me, that would be an opportunity to explore another
culture from the inside. But what would the goal be in overwhelming
predominantly Russian speaking cosmonaughts in traffic sent as easily as
e-mail. What would your message be? Would this service then be made
available to non-hams? How many pieces do they have the time to respond
to now. 

Rob's suggestion would require a commercial channel anyhow. It would be
considered third party traffic since it was not generated via Ham Radio
to begin with. Maybe that could be a distinguishing factor in the
discrimination between services.

By the way, what form will "Ham Radio" take in the future? Just brain
