I've been thinking about wireless meshnets for some time now. the only Issue is that I can't seem to figure out how to connect metros across oceans/uninhabited rural areas

I think you could encode some ham radio frequencies, but passing the cypher between cities would require someone making the trek. Not sure that this would be sustainable, though.

Also, all smartphones have an FM chip, not really sure how hard you could drive it, I'd imagine it just acts like a receiver.
