TMS Mission Control and the Global CapCom

Having a good week for imagining.
...actually.. this is easy.

To have ALL ANALOG STATIONS on EARTH - AMATEUR RADIO READY.

Having ALL Stations Communicating to each other and sharing what they've explored.

Doesn't take a lot of neurons to imagine how you would communicate
when Mars is tattered with Habitat Stations, yeah ?

All it takes is for at least TWO LICENSED OPERATORS PER ANALOG

Re: TMS Mission Control and the Global CapCom

Let's go a bit further to the Off-World Side of Life, yeah?
You're on Mars and you DO NOT have: Cable, TV, AM/FM, Wolf Blitzer, or Fox News.

The Martian Atmosphere can handle up to 7.5 MHz for HF Communications.
Everything else is Line-of-Sight VHF, with Repeater Stations.

That means on this planet with all our happy little analog stations,
no one is talking to anyone else.

So.... What Would the Licensed Ham Radio Operator Use For Comms On Planet Mars?

There are over 726,000 Ham Operators in the U.S.
Less than two (2) have actually been on Mission at the MDRS.
