Re: 2.4 G beacon



Mark & All;

I have noticed over the years that I can tell when the neighbors have the
microwave in use by rotating the dish towards their homes.   There is a
noticeable increase in the noise floor.  My own oven at home will give a
pronounced increase in the noise floor.  The closer to 2450 GHz I tune the
higher the noise.  I have RX & TX ability 2400 to 2450 GHz.
