Devices like the Apple iPad are large, touch screen displays which can provide
great information display with a lot more resolution and font size then our
radios. I'm convinced it is time to stop asking the radio manufacturers to
provide all of these features. Instead, we need them to provide "network"
centric interfaces to the TNC and radio control functions using a TCP-terminal
server interface. There should be an ethernet port and/or USB-to-WiFi connector
on the radio so that we can use it from other equipment without silly wires.
