It’s actually not about that, which is why I have never said it was. It’s about having an audio communications channel that the SOTA community can use as both chasers and activators. As the backbone will be digital it might indeed support other data services but that’s not my focus right now.
Could be… Like the reflector at SOTAwatch some might like to use it and others won’t. Some might establish their own infrastructure to give access if they see that it adds value to what they do. Others will not find it of interest.
