"Welcome to Personal Telco Radio. The October monthly meeting is happening today, October 31st, at 6 pm eastern time in Portland Oregon.

Personal Telco is a Portland based grassroots effort which helps communities build alternative communication networks. By creating, packaging and disseminating Open Source tools, documentation and community support, we are building city wide wireless networks which are open to, and maintained by, the public.

The Featured presestation is titled Satellite Networks and Services: When Wireless Networking IS Rocket Science.

Don Hoffman will give an overview of the design and characteristics of the various satellite network services. Although given the current state of Teledesic, perhaps a bit more of a retrospective. In addition to a general overview, he will focus in detail on the Teledsic (www.teledesic.com) and ICO (www.ico.com) systems, for which he served as principal network architect for several years.

Remember: all the action is taking place on IRC at server irc.freenode.net on channel #ptp
