Point well taken.
I have ordered a couple of the routers and will test them with
24db gain beams and perhaps with Rx/Tx amps on either end to see what
may be the reliable distance at a reasonable cost.
I agree that the routers alone, even with gain antennas, present the same challenge of many participants for adequate
coverage as D-Star and APRS - with less ease of portability.
There is also the challenge of extracting data to be delivered
or forwarded via other communication modes.
That said, a portable HSMM-Mesh network would be exceptionally
valuable to a field team (EOC, DMAT, Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc)
when a lot of data (images & text) needs to be shared among sub-teams.
I'm planning to test the system mobile this Fall as I take a
KD4E, I have had a few people suggest this to me and say essentially
