Just found out about TinyGS which got me really excited, as it makes possibles for isolated communities without any connectivity to communicate to the outside world, without the need for really long links (as long as they are on a sattelite’s path).
It seems to use MQQT, could we possibly integrate Meshtastic with it? Would it make sense to do so?
Another option would be to have a radio just for TinyGS and integrate both Meshtastic and TinyGS on a single front-end application.
For a community that has no way to connect to the outide world, having a single satelite passing a few times a day, exchanging a few kbs is already a game-changer. Why do you say not for Latin America?
Yes, it might bother them if you use a frequency just for ham radio
Or seeing that you don’t have a radio amateur license they will bother you on that frequency
I’m not saying that all radio operators are like that
I think first we establish a reliable link at ~500km between 2 nodes. Then throw one up in the sky. That’s roughly the elevation Starlink is sitting right now to beam back (What I think is) 5G (It doesn’t explicitly say 5G, just the frequency band matches) to cover the globe with internet coverage
