I was thinking about trying something like that myself, I just don't 
have a lot of time to tackle it.  And I still don't like being locked in 
to a proprietary codec, but I don't want to start that battle again...

I'll probably pick up a batch of the 220 radios sooner or later, but it 
might be later at this point.  Of course, if someone wants to buy 100 of 
the 2-meter transceivers and help me free up some working capital, I'll 
be happy to move up the schedule. =]
