Hi Tom,

I was thinking in one of those 915 MHz modules (frequency hopping, 1 W)
they sell for drones. They seem to be perfectly legal in VK, and provide 64

Very good point about some of the parameters "hard coded" in the kernel.

HTTP at 1200 bps must be like watching paint dry I guess...

including loading larger images over HTTP. It definitely works but it is
slow and the Linux kernel has some hard-coded TCP/IP parameters that cause
additional problems at low speeds. It would be better at 9600 but still not
optimal. JNOS avoids some of these problems by implementing timeouts that
are more sympathetic to low bitrate links. IMO a webcam would be optimistic
- but something more like SSTV would be achievable for sure.
