Autopatch or Phonepatch Matures into the Biggest EHN Customer Base?
Does this mean that we would be able to connect a cell phone and link them for third party communications, a step further, could we link cell phones and let text messages pass to and from an Emergency Ham network? If so, we have a potentially huge customer base in an emergency. We might assume that the Emergency Services are well cared for in a disaster, but the general population? Who will pass messages from loved ones, those in need of medical supplies or just find out who is safe? Radio Operators that have the means to pass text messages direct from peoples cell phones using an approved app (voice may require too much bandwidth) would surely become invaluable and provide a service that I do not believe can be met any other way.
Do you believe we could ever pass such traffic? Share your Ideas and comments below.
