[ale] Wandering OT: Re: Car PC's and internet radio?
Jim, you're reacting before you're reading and thinking.
I've rented a satellite phone before; it looked like this:
So, here we have a data point: duplex roughly-POTS-grade voice in both
directions in a unit the size of a cordless phone handset, not counting
Given this data point, how big would a battery-powered unit have to be
in order to have a bidirectional transmission capability that is instead
tremendously asymmetrical - at least nearly CD-grade down, very slow and
occasional up? I dare say, it wouldn't have to be bigger than the
satellite phone - which leaves "same size" and "smaller." Why couldn't
it be smaller?
Now, if there are XM radios the size of a dime, I'll cede your point! :)

Again, different situation, and I contend that you do not know that the
TV station uplink is causing your cellphone problem.
