    Well, the intended use sounds fine, but there would be no real way to secure communication if they transmit over UHF. I'd need more specs to feel better about this.

    It's actually VHF, I was wrong. And they say they encrypt end to end (see https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8053657). I think I'd like this more if it wasn't used with your phone but came with its own screen and keyboard, and then you could put the thing away in a small faraday cage.

    That link eases my concerns a bit.
    I'm still skeptical, but that's just my nature with new things.

    When they invent a base camp GoTenna Repeater, then I'll consider it.

    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.
