So you want to encrypt but not offend. Sorry to say this cannot be done.

In order of price:
1) Parallon Pathkey (206.641.8338)
2) IRE Encrypting modems (410.931.7500)
3) AT&T 3600
4) STU III
(goes up fast from here) Lockheed-Martin also has some products which
modesty forbids my mentioning 8*). Apologies if I left someone out.
However any good encryption is going to offend those who wish to know
what you are transmitting so would like to know why you feel that hardware
would be less offensive that software/pgp ?
