That's about what I thought.

Let me ask you a question if I may.

You are in Odessa Wa. (population 1000) running your experiments.  And we 
quickly find out that your 100 watt always on transmitter completely shuts 
down my wifi broadband system and many of the portable phones and home wifi 
networks in the area.

What do we do then?
