Cool, so C-band antenna development becomes critical real fast!

Wuhoo! And *whew*. That's great news.

So what's the easy and quick way to test the 802.11a functionality?
Should I go ahead and get another couple of these puppies so we can do
direct tests between them? Or should we try and dig up a 802.11a access
point somewhere? Anyone out there have an old 802.11a* access point out

We just tested the D-Link DWL-160 802.11abg USB device, and it seems to
work perfectly with Linux 2.6.30 and the in-kernel ar9170 driver.  We
successfully connected to an 802.11b network on the PSU campus, and this
email demonstrates that it can communicate. :)

As an added surprise, when we went to search for the firmware for this
card, we discovered that the ar9170 driver

SH2 toolchain.  (We haven't tried it yet.)

We haven't tested 802.11a yet, but we think this one's a winner.
