list of devices using 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Hannah Sassaman, Prometheus Radio Project, Jan 9, 2006.

  1. hey, i'm interested in compiling a list of devices that use the 2.4 GHz
    and 5 GHz bands, respectively. i know microwave ovens and cordless
    phones tend to use 2.4, for example. this is reasearch that may exist
    out there already, but i work at a media advocacy group called
    prometheus radio project that's trying to compile as much as we can on
    wireless broadcasting and community wireless networks. drop me a line
    here, or at hannahjs (at) prometheusradio.org with your thoughts.

  3. Hmmmm... Well, maybe go to the FCC ID web pile at:
    https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/oet/cf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm
    and search for devices that have receive approval for Part 15
    intentional and unintentional radiators. There should be several
    thousand devices listed. Is that what you want? What's a "device"?

    Well, if you want classes of devices and technology that use
    2.4/5.7GHz as intentional radiators, we have (off the top of my
    rapidly deplititating head).

    1. 802.11b/g wireless devices.
    2. 2.4GHz cordless phones (various modulation types).
    3. High speed point to point links that use proprietary protocols.
    4. Microwave ovens.
    5. RF excited sulfur lamps by Fusion Lighting (defunct).

    6. Wireless video extensions for security cameras and X10 systems.
    7. Wireless mouse and keyboard (mostly using Wireless USB from
    Cypress semiconductor).
    | http://www.cypress.com/portal/serve...=215&gid=14&fid=65&category=All&showall=false
    8. Bluetooth
    9. Zigbee
    10. Microwave fruit dryers, plastics preheaters, and moisture
    removers.
    11. ISM (Industrial, scientific, manufacturing) devices used in
    research.
    12. Low speed 2.4GHz data links. For example:
    | http://www.freewave.com/fgr24series.html
    13. WiMax on 2.4 and 5.6GHz. (Clearwire, NextNet)
    14. Karlnet based WISP (wireless internet service provider).

    I probably forgot a bunch, but is this what you want?
    Why are you making this list (I'm curious)?

    I think they already have a list.They seem to be fairly well acquainted
    with the FCC.

  5. JUst trying to help. The site appears to be 99% about Low Power FM
    broadcasting. Reading the last link (above), they seem to consider
    2.4GHz as an alternative to LPFM as a means of providing "community
    media". I read all 9 pages twice and still can't figure out exactly
    what they're trying to accomplish.

    I just re-read it and I know what you mean.
