    I see that a 1200 baud packet takes a seconds to send.

    On the weekend I was sening 20ms databursts @ 19k2 on 434 MHz at 10mW

  But how fast were you moving?    In what kind of terrain.   Over what

  1200 baud is much more tolerant of mobile flutter, fading and multipath
from moving vehicles than higher data rates,  because it's individual
symbols are much longer.     The differences between even 1200 and 9600 on
Kenwood D700 in motion are quite dramatic.

    I wonder if we are ever going to break the shackles of 1200 baud ?
