Hi All
    I have been interested for quite a while in acquiring data from a
remote station via the cell phone and download software or better yet
the internet. Is this something that could be somewhat standardized in
this group for those of us who have limited knowledge of the internet
and communications workings? It would be kind of "cool" if one could
double click on the psn world map and see the latest hours from that
site. Each individual could select his/her "best" sensor to show (I have
no idea about the security issue)  like the USGS helicorder site. I
don't know if it would be even possible. Just a thought. Along the same
line, how would I find out how to acquire my data from a remote site I
would have? The site would have a cell phone and modem. I didn't want to
pay thousands of dollars for hardware and software. I have had  people
discuss  the use of  Dos/Windows software to download data and this is
probably the easy way to go. If ones site is several miles away would
the internet be better wrt long distance charges?  Any thoughts?
