The ham operators that I talked to feel that they partially because they 
are such a monority and out of focus to an enemy power have an 
obligation to provide emegency radio service to the world if needed.   
They Jumped on the idea that Linux users might well have the same 
obligation.  Anyway I thought it was an interesting thing to 
consider.                        Doug
