Our allocations are 3300-3500, but this band is for wireless LANs in
much of the rest of the world (typically 3.4 to 3.6, for instance in
Germany where it has been auctioned off for commercial broadband), so
there is some equipment out there. There is a new band at 3650-3700 for
wireless ISP's in the US but very little equipment has been certified
for it.  W6QAC operates a couple of networks in the Silicon Valley on
3.3-3.5 using modified commercial gear.

Ubiquiti radios are Atheros chipsets with transverters onboard.
