Voltar Labs took a simple HighBright LED and made it complicated.  But, with complications come features.

Voltar Labs wondered "How far can you communicate using a radio that has only 100 milliWatts"?  
Answer: Farther than you may think.

Wo!  Isn't that somewhat on the order of the signal we get from Voyager 1?  I wonder who's listening to 50,000 watt KOMA.

Today Voltar Labs established ham radio communications with the Low Earth Orbit satellite AO-91 as it buzzed by at 17,000MPH.
I was in Leander riding the KLR and pulled over when my phone notified me of the pass.  Never took off my helmet.   dutch

The stuff you can learn from the "Thread of Awesome" can be downright, awesome!

Had to look it up:

https://www.amsat.org/ao-91-commissioned-declared-open-for-amateur-use/

And you got that pass recorded in real time with your QSO and your helmet still on?

Over here stunned in silence...  Voltar - YOU are THAT guy in the movie who is still evaluating the data on the situation (lost in space on a doomed capsule, studying the monster, etc.) while the other players delve into human drama and intrigue in the storyline. You are the guy who comes up with the secret weapon to defeat the monster at the last minute using only a rusty fire extinguisher, some orange peels and some dead c-cell batteries, right?

Voltar is Awesome in many regards! He communicates with satellites while pumping iron and riding a KLR - all at the same time!

Yes.  But only if the monster has beer.  If the monster has beer and not willing to share then it's game on.   Freaky
