[Ham-80211] Application idea for high speed amateur networking

Or for Part 14 use at 13cm with directional PtP at legal power?

5Ghz was not part of the original discussion.

PtMP makes no sense in this application.

A repeater at 2m that understands Ethernet will be the public face. The Wifi
link is only for control.

Why are we complicating this?
