What's interesting to me this that the Cartels radio network isn't really
that sophisticated looking. From the pictures in the articles it's a
UHF/VHF voice net with repeaters. Now they might be interconnected into a
complex radio net and they might also be encrypted but this type of
technology is pretty basic as compared to ad hoc wireless mesh networks.
That being said a simple robust and operational radio voice network is a
wonderful tool. You can buy canned networks like this form some VARS.
