There was a time when HAMs where the ones pushing radio technology
forward.  Maybe these guys are doing that and building a digital EME
network on VHF?  We don't know.

We can guess but typically when you start wanting precise time
synchronization it is because of something like TDMA (time division
multiple access) to a shared resource.
