[Ham-80211] OT??? High power 2.4 GHz rules change

Fri May 19 16:17:42 UTC 2006

Note...being on-the-air or transmitting DOES NOT equate to channel usage.

Frequencies set aside for 911 call boxes are used less than 0.01% of the
time (thankfully)...yet their usage is 100%.

pairs do not equal utilization.  In Boston, it's also similarly 
impossible to get a pair on 2 meters or 440. yet if you scan the bands 
outside of a 30 minute to one hour window in rush-hour, you hear 
virtually no activity except a few retirees here and there.

Anyway, this is getting a bit far afield of the topic.
