You have made a good sales attempt. It could replace the eeepc here,
but for the proposed location, I would still have to put a microcomputer
on it to deal with the 3G connectivity required. That son's domicile is
250km from the nearest digi, so I don't expect to be able to put stuff
through the network other than APRS-IS. He doesn't have an ADSL
service, but the AC is the right price (whatever voltage it is at the
end of the transmission system).

So far the decision is going
FM828 + hardware TNC + microcomputer + Huawei E220
which would only require the purchase of 2 crystals, and a hardware
TNC, maybe another antenna, everything else is available in various
"treasure chests".

Does anyone apply for additional callsigns for their remote digis?
Happy for replies off-list if desired.
