Earl, you have to consider way more than this ALOHA concept when working 
with Radio.  You have to take in the fundamentals of
Amateur Radio (actually any radio)...something I think the ALOHA concept 
totally fails to do.

I think Hams, need to go back and ask themselves just what are the 
fundamental of operating Amateur Radio.  There, you will find the answers.
