Dean and others,

Definately a great idea! A similar system exists in the UK with the 
pager system (not quite sure of its workings). There are ways you can 
send out bulk SMS (simple message service - through a mobile phone) from 
a central website. This has been developed for workgroups and social 
clubs I believe. But there is, like most things with mobile phones, a 
cost at sending each message out.

I would have concern with the posting of mobile phone numbers that are 
accessible across the net, not because of prank callers, but for the 
fear of recieving SMS-Spam. As yet this isn't a problem, but some 
companies are definitely looking at cost effective ways of sending bulk 
messages for advertising.

Any other ideas from Birding-Ausers?
