microwave relay station for surprisingly little money. I think he even makes
a profit by allowing his neighbors piggy-back on his service.
One of my customers, in a (deep) suburb in South Carolina fussed with her

"You know," he said, "we've been planning to upgrade your area but we're
stuck for facilities. If you can let us have a space about the size of a
