Well let's see, I personally know two rovers just in the NWVT area,  
using our sparsely populated, by ham standards, as a guide that would  
put the figure at 12-18 rovers minimum over the region Ev is  
proposing to cover. Allowing a 'gentle' rate of 15 minute beacons,  
each rover could possibly generate 4-600 frames per hour ... times   
15 rovers let us say, so 7.5-10K extra frames per hour .... I am  
sorry but no network can handle that much extra, it would be a major  
additional load here on the 'fringe' between the Montreal and Albany 
(NY) LANs, and if it got into those LANS, which it would it would  
cripple them.
