the radio's are very expensive and their perfomance is low, so the
cost/perfomance scale lay one sided... running it commercially means other
costs like support etc (in tanzania the HF Radio will attract a 100%
custom duties -- no matter what use you put it to). maybe it's a thing
that will be best run by NGO's who is doing as by-the-way and are tax
exempted. There will be a question of sustainability and availability.
