Thanks Alan and Curt for the comments.  Although none of this discussion has
addressed Dave's original email I will pursue the 2 radio terrestrial
testing method.  This reminded me that I have an old TEKK 9k6 UHF rock bound
data radio in the junk box somewhere which  I used for years on the TCPIP
44.*.*.* network via a JNOS gateway.  Ah, those were the days when only the
amateurs, universities and military knew what the internet was all about -
telnet, gopher, ftp in text mode only... But I digress...

Thanks again for reminding me that I had the option of the "2 radio
terrestrial test"
