Wireless serial? for modems, Duos etc

A discussion on a MIDI hackers' forum about wireless MIDI gave me some ideas for wireless serial-port solutions. Perhaps this could be a cheaper, simpler, smaller alternative to WiFi, or even ethernet, for all those Duo hackers out there?
And for those trying to hack up cordless phones as wireless modems.

MIDIbox discussion: http://www.midibox.org/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=misc;action=display;num=1066118673

Wireless serial chips (link corrected to the current model): http://www.linxtechnologies.com/ldocs/modules/m_hp3.shtml

Another version: http://www.linxtechnologies.com/ldocs/modules/m_es.shtml

"Transparent Serial Data Output (56Kbps max.)
Direct Serial Interface
Up to 1000ft"

You'd need 4 chips for a bidirectional serial link - two TX and two RX. And who knows about getting small quantities...

It's a good ideia.

You can't. Depending on who you ask it's either a feature or bug of AF2.

Duplication

Well, thanks, it's good to know other ppl think there's some merit in this. But it's a duplicate of an existing post - I must have hit save twice.

/edit/ meh, I'll just let the old one slide into the distance

The clincher on this is going to be price - the last time I looked into serial RF, the only one I could get a price on was $45 for 9.6kbs full duplex.
