I don't think you are correct.  The ice storm situation may have had to do 
with a microwave network still being down.  If your description is actually 
what they do, that would mean that if one station went down, the rest down 
the daisy chain would also go down?  With today's technology this kind of a 
system seems antiquated to me.
