Re: P3D 2400 MHz band use?



More wireless LAN products are finding their way onto this band and there is
also talk of wireless Internet on 2400 MHz.  Bob makes very valid points and
we should all take notice and action.

The sad reality is that we are the ones who sit with the problems when
sharing the bands with licence free users.  This may sound very selfish, but
the hams always end up as the villains.

I also prompt my wife to use it or loose it.
