I don’t think you even need an HPG to receive.  Just a radio antenna in the right location.  The sending HPG handles opening the wormhole or whatever then beams a radio signal through.  Comstar just tended to beam their message directly into the receiving station because it makes more sense to do so.

And as Lord Harlock pointed out in another thread, Gavin Marik(-Davion) is somewhere. He has his own ROM-like organization with strong communications abilities. Julian used his services before, so he has this option in any future scenario.

Isn't that an interesting little piece of information, a connected fellow like that
might be handy in such times as these?

Sadly, I fear that Gavin will be forgotten like a lot of other things.

Yeah, instead of using this interesting character, they took the trouble to create a Trenton Marik.

It's not that I don't believe you, but first, I have to see if there are places for people like Gavin Marik-Davion in the Post IlClan to sell information to garner power in. It's kind of hard to be an information broker in an Inner Sphere run by Clan Logic. Plus, it is easy to remember that Quintus Allard-Liao got equally forgotten.
