I am an amateur radio operator. I have recently discovered OuterNet and am very excited about what does and what it can do. I have an idea for amateur radio operators around the world.
I can envision the OuterNet providing ASC data of information from the DX Cluster we all use for World Wide Communication. It provides spotting of who is on the air, in what part of the world, and what frequency they are using.
Here is a small sample data for example.
DX de AB3AH: 3795.0 YT1AA big sig as usual +YU 0325Z PA
(This is AB3AH reporting) (on 3795 KHz) (heard YT1AA) (Big Signal as usual) (0325zulu) (PA short for Pennsylvania)

This information is available all over the internet BUT in areas where internet is not available an amateur radio operator will still be able to locate other stations using the OuterNet. I am not able to explain it better but GOOGLE DX Cluster and you will understand the need.
