I would love to see us build a POCSAG PAGING network. This would allow Amateur Radio to provide reliable paging for Amateur Radio Operators. With AllStarLink we wouldn't need a land line to make a page. You can use a radio on any node that is connected to the PAGING network to send a page. There is a onetime cost to setup the node. Newer pages are now hand programmable and under hundred bucks. I'm not a programmer, but I would love to see a ENCODE DECODE for the POCSAG node. We could use a DECODE as a DIGI if a node was not on the PAGING network.
Let me know.
