This came up last year, and I pointed out it is a game changer. A station
can now operate full duplex by having a remote receiving site.
A few folks indicated they came close to being able to do this within the
confines of their own property, but it looks like they decided to proceed.
It is only available to SOA(HP), but it will be interesting to see what the
final outcome is.
