But if you're in a cave, how are the stations going to be setting their 
location?  Not by GPS.  It will need to be manually entered (maybe based 
on a "you are here: Lat/Lon" signpost?), so inseparable grouping is 
inevitable.  It's going to be up to the client to display the stations 
in a readable manner.

It will be really interesting to see how well RF bounces around 
irregularly shaped wet rock...  Physics theory tells me it won't work 
well, but in practice, theory doesn't work so well. (*)
