Back to basics- Short Wave?

Post by Eric » Thu Feb 19, 2015 11:25 pm

Thinking out loud here but many areas in need most do not have regulations to worry about for radio licensing so the tried and proven short wave transmission might be a great option for long range communication. I realize this is not new and widely used now- but is there an option to make it uber-cheap or more accessible/user friendly?

Perhaps a super basic user interface/antenna/transmitter?

Thoughts?
