Transponders at the bottom of the sea

Hi Vince, instead of a string of Seasteads, what would you think about sinking a large number of wifi routers? Power would be a problem, obviously, but a huge grid of interconnected submerged Wifi-stations might be profitable because they would be a lot cheaper than satellites and cruiseships etc could use them as well.

Not sure what you mean. High speed radio or microwave signals do not go through water. If it is a small thing floating on the surface and anchored to the bottom then it could have trouble seeing over 8 to 15 foot waves. It could be possible to have a fixed line of them to reach out to an anchored seastead 200+ miles from anywhere. But I like troposcatter better for that. Vincecate 02:37, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
