I've no idea.  I do not have my ham license, but my buddy told me that 
technically I am NOT supposed
to use ham radio for boss/employee communications....I've got some relatives 
that live out
in the country...I can do testing there.  "FCC won't let me be me..." in the 
city.  In the country,
it's you and three cows for three miles.

I am also really not familiar.  I know that the project hopes 
to use local radios
to allow encrypted calls for up to 40+ miles in poor countries.  They would 
probably have more 
information that I do.  The main developer is easy to get ahold of in his XMPP 
support chat room.
