Poor headline, not using ham radio, actually. Doing so could could be illegal.
I think the original idea started out using ham radio, but then it was shot down by many people explaining the pecuniary interest part would make it illegal.
There’s quite an interesting intersection of ham radio, crypto currency nerds, and gun hoarders. I surmise it’s the whole bootstraps thing.
Kinda neat idea. I wonder if they are using Othernet for the sat reception?
