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.
