      borderline useless and dumb since you must comply to air time, which is 1%

      you cannot continuously transmit outside ISM

          Not him but you probably want to avoid attracting attention if you're transmitting a lot on ham frequencies, and encrypted comms are illegal on ham frequencies.
          A good technique to get around the regulations is to embed messages into images and transmit the images via modes like KGSTV. It's hard to detect and its deniable.

    Neat in theory but gimped by power restrictions.
    Aside from HAM radio, there isn't really a good option for transmitting more than the size of a city block.
    Tragically, with HAM being basically IRC for boomers, it has about a hundred years of baggage, weird restrictions, license requirements, and unwritten etiquette that makes it unappealing for an outsider.Would be nice if there were a frequency band that was a free for all with absolutely no restrictions.

        HAM is filled with old farts that do nothing all day but listen out for people having fun on radio, and unless you're actively on the move in a completely different location each time you broadcast they WILL eventually triangulate you and expect a knock on the door by the FCC

          They aint triangulating anything. I know because I've been a nuisance for a decade and nobody's done shit. The moment I go on the air a bunch of other trolls appear from different locations and nobody knows if it's one dude making a mess or 10 of them.

        not often but when they do get angry it turns into a shitshow with trolls playing music and hams jamming, yelling insults and accusing each other of playing said music, so you can't get any messages through for a while

            there's an uhf repeater on a mountain near my city and I simply put the phone near the microphone of a kenwood thf-7 and transmit
            the messages last about a second so I have to problem slipping between the gaps when people are talking, and most of the local hams are old dudes who can't tell the difference between noise and an ofdm modem, so they often thing someone's just pressing ptt to frick with them

        depends on the regularity of those bursts on a given frequency. they could find it. stuff like in op and

        It's cool if you can encrypt. Meshtastic is an option.

        here? nobody cares as long as it's not trashing licensed spectrum or assigned spectrum or over a certain power range. speaking of power, less power there is the harder it is to triangulate - but you'd have to be on the device broadcasting a signal for it to be found.

          Looks like pinpointing the source still requires sending people into the field with portable direction finders. No wonder I can experiment with impunity despite being only a mile away from one of the fcc's direction finding buildings.

        Regional pseudo-internet could easily and relatively cheaply be made these days, the biggest issues are in regulations and convincing other people to join your autistnet

        Glowies and military SIGINT can do it, but they are not going to go after some kid who dares to run encrypted bursts on ham frequencies, typical hams can't do shit about it if you keep the bursts short enough and frequency hop. You are most likely to get caught by your transceiver IC/tx chain being characterized or some shit and then they can start correlating your transmissions from the rest. Significant effort for them.

          Nice, I've been wanting to setup a solar powered Meshtastic network here by just building little modules and planting them up on hills.
          But, also considering just building standard HAM relays too using SA868's and digital comm'ing over that so that it can be dual purpose.
          We have forest fires where I am and it'd be nice if the general public in those areas would be able to use it in those situations too.

    I never had one of these and I fully understand now that it never would've worked the way I hoped it would, but wireless communication without a middleman is such a compelling concept to me. When I was a teen, I thought it would be cool if my friend (who lived a mile away) and I had one of these to communicate. But I'm sure the range is absolute dogshit on these old things. It might've BARELY worked if he lived next door and even then I bet it would've been a stretch.

      It would probably work great with line of sight. I have dpmr radios and the range is shit without line of sight both with voice and sms. The only tech I was impressed with was lora on 2.4GHz. I got 600ft in a very dense urban environment and 20 miles from a rooftop at only 20mW. The best part about them is that theyre legal.
