Fucking sick

Alright pretty sure I just went from heavily considering buying one to absolutely buying one with that. How many people could speak on an encrypted channel at once? Assuming location is generally close. I'm not talking like a massive group here, but more like a 5 person conference.

yea, its pretty cool :) the method i used as an example uses minimodem which is a linux command line application. like cb radio, minimodem is simplex.

this would have to be done as a professional cb radio net, otherwise people would likely be keying over eachother and transmitting data at the same time, and minimodem would just receive it as a jumbled mess.

another data method is SSTV, mainly used by ham radio operators, it can be used on cb radio too. with slow scan tv, a cb radio operator could send a picture to another cb'er.

minimodem would be the preferred method of comm encryption, in any shtf/martial law or other possible scenario requiring privacy. a group of 5 could successfully share audio encrypted information with the help of a net operator :)
