Interesting article about Brazilian railroads moving to satellite comms for the trains. Probably wouldn't be needed in the USA since there is a decent network in place

I really like the "primitive" nature of US rail comms. Can't get more simple than VHF simplex, and it can be monitored by those of us who are interested ;)
