Hi all. I’m Matt. Love what’s going on here. Hope it gets really big. I am a service person who has been known to fix things from time-to-time for a large soulless conglomerate. I am a HAM and love everything RF. These kids designed a pretty awesome getup here. I don’t really think I’ve come across anything like it; sure you can duplicate it with a couple radios, some interfaces and hundreds of dollars, but this is in reach to almost everybody in this country.
Here in Chicago we have a TV station called WGN. You may have heard of them. It’s a Chicago station with a motto of “Chicago’s very own” and they truly are. Some of the regulations scrapped by the FCC last week will allow the sale of this station to Sinclair who is the largest owner of broadcast media in this country. To see what WGN has created as an INDEPENDENT be destroyed by corporate sheep acting in our worst interests is heartbreaking.
The people need a neutral network. Speech, dreams, ideas, criticisms should never be stifled. In fact, I think we need more of them. Yes even criticisms. What’s about to occur on December 14 is sobering. If their rules pass and net neutrality is scrapped, this forum could cease to function because AT&T doesn’t want a competitive network being planned. And they’d be allowed to do almost anything they could to impede our access to this site. or any site.
One day we will need what goTenna provides. And the best time to implement anything is before you need it. I look forward to all the future discussions and ideas here.
