TalNet Router (left with case open) with a Cylink 900Mhz Spread Spectrum radio (right). The radio provided a connection from 9th floor of hotel next to the convention down to the forum room under TAPR's SS STA. The link provided a 169Kbps Internet connection between the room and the forum. Greg Jones, WD5IVD, used this connection for all his presentations. The box sitting in front of the router/radio is a ethernet hub connecting the router to the G3 Macintosh Server.

Another photo of the TALNET router/radio showing the high-tech mount for one of Bob Morgan's, WB5AOH, 900Mhz antenna. The lamp shade provided a good platform for down pointing into the convention building.
