BLUE SKY CORNER
If you also have an amateur radio operator's license, you have the opportunity to connect your computer to some radio gear and communicate with fellow amateurs through a rather sophisticated satellite-born radio repeater system.
Since the FCC has approved the use of ASCII for some satellite communications, the use of computers is a natural. And once you have a computer hooked up, all kinds of things are possible.
How 'bout a fully automatic, cross country communications network?
Is there anyone out there working along these lines? Or, do you know of any groups or publications dedicated to such an end? I'd sure like to hear from you.
