Similar projects worth following
The plan is to build a muilt-radio mesh networking system that could be placed in disaster situations or used in search and rescue operations. The idea is that if we can cover an area with WiFi we could expand the resources available at any one place in the area.

Looking at using B.A.T.M.A.N. advanced as the mesh backed and looking in to what kind of WiFi based two-way radios there might be. If I find none I may have to do that as well.

Enjoy this project?

Thanks for that I had ran across MeshPatato a while back but had forgotten about it. Will look and see if it would fit. The telephony  part might add an itersting side to it as well.

Thinking about using 5ghz or 900mhz for backhall and 802.11B for coverage
