Use Radio Waves for Text-cast Too

Radio X-Text

Isn’t radio an underutilized medium for transmitting data at no cost to consumers? Digital radio could transmit text data as well as sound, or data for pictures and books as well as noise that can be reconverted into music at some later time. Instead of regular am-fm radios that immediately convert digital bits into sound, a new technology should be mass produced that captures digital data from radio waves and stores that in a device that can convert the data into text files, images files, epub files and so forth.

It would be good to be able to read books and newspapers via radio waves on a personal device in remote locations. Radio can travel far, and with the right technology free and subscription data could be ‘downloaded’ virtually anywhere on Earth as it is. Wouldn’t extra-terrestrials listening to Earth broadcasts in a few hundred thousand years want book and other text as well as the noise of NPR?

Newspapers and bookstores could transmit books on radio that could be decoded by subscribers or those that have on-line store credits. Public domain and free books could accelerate the distribution of e-books to the underprivileged around the world. Radio receivers could store data downloaded overnight when the radio is in just-receive and store data mode.

It seems as if there would be some potential for sales and public service with digital data radio transmitter-receivers. While conventional radio runs ads and notes sponsorship of wealth management businesses, digital text radio could provide agricultural and medical information to the starving and sick. Christians could actually broadcast Bibles and evolutionists Machiavelli’s ‘The Prince’.
