    Just noticed that you were a amateur radio operator. Are you a part of any
    802.11 wifi stuff that is licensed hams only? Where I live we are working on
    a large scale (city wide) 2.4Ghz network using higher power radios and amps
    than are allowed by unlicensed users. We are also going to use 5.8Ghz links
    for backhaul stuff. currently we have 4 high level (above 150') sites that
    we can/are going to put equipment on. We have not installed anything as of
    yet as we are still playing with stuff on the ground and between home sites
    (1.5 miles)

    Just curious.

  2. Groan. There's no escape.
    Hell no. There's a sub-group of the local radio club that's suppose
    be working on what the ARRL calls high speed multimedia. I've
    contributed some hardware, wasted a few days setting up systems, and
    done most of the calculations. However, it's being done in such an
    erratic, crude, and unprofessional manner, that I've done my best to
    avoid any involvement and discourage any attempts to create what I
    consider to be RF pollution.
    This one?

    Fine. Have fun. When the FCC pulls the plug on ham radio high power
    in the 2.4GHz/5.8Ghz bands, don't say I didn't warn you. Warning
    against using the ham license as an excuse to use exessive power is
    all over the various 802.11 for ham radio web pages. Given the choice
    between a few thousand hams, and millions of Wi-Fi users, who do you
    think is going to win when the users and manufacturers complain?
    Well, good luck.

    Then why include your call in your signature?

  4. The call sign is included for when I get involved in the ham radio
    forums, newsgroups, mailing lists, and politics. I guess I could
    customize my signature for specific newsgroups.

    Most ham radio related projects are interesting to me, especially if
    they involve building something new and wonderful. However, the
    pollution of 802.11 by hams using higher power than necessary is not
    my idea of a worthy project. You managed to ask me about one of the
    few aspects of ham radio that I find quite literally disgusting.

    You also didn't answer my question. Is this the one you're working

    So you have a problem with with OT posts to indivuals?
    I could have emailed him yes, however I didn't because I thought it might be
    somewhat interesting to the group and inspire some other discussion on the
    topic but was pointed at jeff because he was also a ham.
