A wireless Internet service from Metricom, Inc., Los Gatos, CA. It uses appoximately 100 small "microcell" radio transceivers attached to utility poles within a 20-square mile cell. Each cell has one wired access point, which is a sp-q, frame relay connection to the Internet. Each microcell bounces digital signals from the mobile devices to other microcells and eventually to its wired access point. The transceivers in this MicroCellular Data Network (MCDN) employ 162 frequency-hopping channels in the 902-928MHz band from user to microcell. The 2.4GHz band is used in the rest of the system, and licensed spectrum in the 2.3GHz band is used for its high-speed service. Rocochet modems attach to laptops and other handhelds via the serial port. Ricochet 1 provides 28.8 Kbps service with access primarily to stationary users, while Ricochet 2, introduced in 2000, offers 128 Kbps for the commuter in transit. First deployed in Washington, DC, Seattle and Silicon Valley, coverage in more than 40 urban areas is expected by 2002.

"Ricochet" (sometimes rendered "Rick-o-Shay" and also as "Ricochet Romance") is a popular song. The credits show it to be written by Larry Coleman, Joe Darion, and Norman Gimbel, without apportioning the work on the lyrics and music, in 1953. In fact, since Coleman and Darion wrote "Changing Partners" the same year, with Darion as lyricist and Coleman as composer, while Gimbel wrote the English lyric for "Sway" the same year, it can be concluded that Coleman wrote the music and Darion and Gimbel the lyrics.
Heath Wright, lead singer of Ricochet, was born April 22, 1967, and was raised in Vian, OK. The band Ricochet was formed after brothers Jeff and Junior Bryant disbanded their own Texas-based band, Lariat, to team with Wright, as well as musicians Greg Cook, Teddy Carr and Eddie Kilgallon. After producer Ron Chancey saw the band play in a club in Columbia, Mo., he tipped off his son Blake Chancey, an executive at Sony Music in Nashville.
