That's Dewayne Hendricks, an old warrior for the Net.  Just send him a
note, maybe mentioning Seth Johnson may help a little.  He and I
forward information freedom stuff a lot.  "Dewayne Hendricks"

The particular technical details you want you'd have to ask him, about
that moving things around on the spectrum stuff.  I know he's talking
about amateur radio, which gives people a global license to do lots of
stuff freely on shortwave frequencies (I think).  There's a very old
school org call ARRL that sometimes gets stirred up to defend the
freedom of the airwaves under the Communications Act.  I *think* he
was adding to the topic of software-defined radio, just the point that
with the amateur license you can just go ahead and do a lot of stuff.

Brett Wynkoop is also an old hand in ARRL, shortwave and information
freedom (a key player in New Yorkers for Fair Use).  He biked downtown
on 9/11 and provided emergency comms for awhile.  Contact him and ask
about what he knows technically.  Mentioning my name probably goes
much further in his case, especially if you're going to make something
happen.  "Brett Wynkoop" <wynkoop at wynn.com>
