I offer this in full risk of ridicule or reprisal. If you know a techie, pass it on:
When the day comes as many of us fear, that the internet and private electronic communications are shut down or severely limited by a combination of government and corporate interests, we will need an alternative way of communication. I believe that all forms of radio and satellite communication will be simultaneously curtailed.
For those who are a bit worried, I propose a hokey little idea:
An ordinary hand-held laser pointer can be easily adapted to produce much more power by burning out the power limiter. This small laser will then have enough power to transmit several miles. Light sensors are cheap (Nightlights etc.), and their efficiency can be increased also. By connecting these to a computer, it will be possible to create undetectable and unstoppable communication networks to transmit simple messages and small amounts of data in morse code or even in multi base codes. Receivers on high points can act as transfer nodes, and in my theory, it is even possible to “paint” messages on aircraft, satelites, and with enough power, even on the Moon. I exagerate a bit..lol
