I haven't looked at it, but from what I've heard they apparently made  
some fairly stupid (IMO) design decisions.  IIRC, a callsign can only  
be on the network once (no SSID), if a repeater is to be added the  
whole network has to be rebooted or something equally drastic.  Oh,  
and the radios are obscenely expensive.

No thanks.
