Packet works over CB, just not here.  Stupid FCC.  Big in Europe - ha.

Here is a cute video of a guy doing 1200 baud packet.

Packet is still alive here in the US of A.  It is used more for APRS (think GPS + Packet Radio).  It is still used be a few Luddites like me as well.

Interesting, what does the FCC have against it?

When the government decides it must shut down the internet for our own good, this might be the best way to communicate.

The FCC is picky about the "what" is transmitted.  Data tones are different from voice in the opinion of the FCC.  They call them emission types.  Heh, heh..

I'm making a wild guess here, because I don't know the frequencies or channel bandwidths for CB, nor the frequency spreads for packet radio signals, but perhaps the FCC is concerned that packet radio signals might use more bandwidth than a single CB radio channel is allocated. If the signal bandwidth is more than the bandwidth for the channel plus the guard-bands, it would interfere with adjacent channels. If I remember correctly, there's at least one CB channel reserved for emergency use. It would definitely be bad to interfere with that.

That might be the objection.  I never followed any petition to get F2D emissions allowed on 11m.  It is easy to get a ham license these days as there is no code requirement right up to a general license.

Pothole gardening.

That reminds me of the time I found a single flower growing out of a crack in the mortar of my house's chimney last year. That was weird.

Now that I own an angle grinder perhaps I should repoint it.

Anyone else here using Foursquare? I've been playing with it and would love to have some chatter with folks I know from here.

I use it, mostly to get free chips and salsa from Chili's.

How do you do that?

They always have a check-in coupon here. If you check in it shows you the coupon on your phone and you show it to the server and they bring you your chips and salsa.

That may be specific to the location where I live, but I'm pretty sure I have heard others mention it.

Heh. It's somewhat accurate but I'd say it's not mean-spirited enough :)
