Matt, Most Radar systems are built with extremely sensitive receivers and extremely high gain antennas that can detect things like a double echo which means it can receive the signal that was generated by itself and then bounced back to the antenna not once but multiple times. In many cases is also designed to sit there in a passive mode to detect other signals and not give out it's own position which gives an enemy an easy target to attack. Some of it is used to direct weapons to it's proper targets, some if it as navigation aids for military aircraft the just like civilian air travel. Do you want to let WISP's be responsible for disabling some of that technology? Please do not get this list started thinking that WISP's and or the manufacturers are much smarter in radio engineering than a government agency who has spent billions of dollars in research and construction of radio systems that are partially responsible for the incredibly cheap radios we have today. Most of what we use on the air today has been in use or manufactured in one form or another by the government since the 60's. You haven't heard of it because for most of those years it was considered part of a national secret and any of us who did know about it are not allowed (including the manufacturers) to say a thing about it. RF Engineering, complex radio systems and digital modulation techniques have been around for much longer that you realize, where do you think many of the geniuses who built this stuff got their experience in the first place?

I think everyone is missing the real problem with 5.4ghz..... How big of a piece of crap is our military radar that a $49 minipci wireless card and a homemade pringles antenna can render it useless??? ;^) Matt Larsen vistabeam.com J. Vogel wrote: > Fair enough.
