Might be usefull I suppose, If you are an Alien stranded on earth who needs to "phone home".

This is almost as bad as those phone fortune tellers.

We don't have the money for a company to do it.

You have to BE rich first in order to get rich. It is a dang shame.

Christopher Rose at Rutgers University in New Jersey, US, has studied the energy efficiency of beaming radio signals to outer space. He calculated an estimate for New Scientist that, at best, the signal from the phone calls could only be properly received about two light years away. Why does anyone try calling when there is no chance of anybody hearing? It's worse than a cell phone.

Can you hear me now?
Darn.
now?
Darn again.

what would you do if the telephone company will let you have a brand new service that lets you talk to the dead?
