To All,

OK - I'll throw this out there -

What if we do something with AREDN and establish our own service?  We won't
need 'cloud burners' to do an approach that way; and we will be able to
solve two problems at once.

For those that may not be aware, AREDN info can be found here:


The more nodes we have; the better.  We could run our own time service this
way for not a lot of wattage per person; even run off of solar.  I have a
5V to 24V/48V design that can run one of these
radios for at least a day off of a USB storage battery that is solar
charged; so past the initial investment it would run provided the battery
was charged.

Something to think about.
