Re: More Clutter on 2.4 GHz



I presume the eventual aim must be world-wide sales to achieve economies of
scale. Quite frankly 10 km is a joke as you probably wouldn't even get that
hilltop-to-hilltop. In a real-world environment a max range of 1 km would be
more likely.

As I read the latest Ofcom Licence Excemption document it looks like these
devices may be limited to 100 mW in the UK, see
