And how is that different then the curent state of 90%+ of the WISP
industry, other then hams are "talking" about it, and the WISP's have done

Ok, so another law to fix the law everyone is ignoring? Makes sense.

HF.. you mean SSB. You do realize that this APC request has nothing at all
to do with this, just as the WISP misconception of 100watt ATV on 2.4ghz
had nothing to do with it? APC does not nor will it apply to what you
speak of nor what the WISP industry fears the most... solid on carriers
blanketing a wide area.

BTW Carl, I think it is proper for you disclose your industry connections
here, if you still have any. Nothing wrong with them, good perspective,
but Marlon disclosed his.
