I haven't taken any networking classes as of yet, but for any gurus
out there:

Wouldn't the fact that CU-SeeMe does not "broadcast" but people
simply connect to reflectors, have a much kinder effect on the net?

Also, if radio were done audio recieve only connections as, I think its
called CYBERNET, (is that it John?) does, there should be a much lower load
on the net as a whole? Or is the packet structure the same regardless of
whether the video contains anything? And if it does contain a STATIC
picture, (which requires only minimal updates) The load shouldn't be
too heavy.

Which has a heavier cost on the net, audio or video?

Two final thoughts, semi-queries, whatever, is that the constant audio
transmissions required by a radio type service would add to the load

Thanks much,
