Hello, Apologies for not responding earlier -- I have had a problem logging into the site.
From a technical perspective, there is no reason why 26/27Mz Citizen Band radio could not be used as a transport. We would just need to have a different radio module.
Regarding the other projects, we have been in contact with those folks at various times. We are actively working with the folks at http://sonnetlabs.com, with the objective of ensuring that our solutions are interoperable.
