Thanks for your comment. It is interesting to note that there are
numerous devices being marketed to do just what I want to do. Today I
did some googling on evdo mobile routers.
At the top of the google list was aMB8000 bundle with special high gain
antenna, router, and a verizon evdo card, all for 1295.00
Others I have found that do the same thing that sell for less:
1. Kyocera KR1 Mobile Router selling on kyocera's website for 229 dollars.
2. The D-Link 3G Mobile Router DIR-450 selling for 199.99 at Best Buy
I am certain there is at least one more out there, but I don't remember
it's maker or model number etc.
I guess I will continue on with the project and only "experiment" with it...
