Sophisticated connections: If someone is willing to use Satellite telephones and/or Satellite Internet (BGAN and/or Thuraya) uplink gear. If anyone is in Egypt and can purchase gear but they’re just missing money, I know people who can try to help pay for it. Also very important: If someone is in the area of Egypt and heading *to* Cairo, we would like to help get this gear to people on the ground. The goal is to get this gear into Egypt as soon as possible. If you need it, reach me  on @Beirutiyat on Twitter, leave a direct message and I will hook you up with people in charge.

Here’s an example of some of the possible gear:
