I stand corrected. I know my wireless router puts out 100 MW, and cordless phone etc. What I did not know was that spread spectrum was allowed more power. Sounds like discrimination to me

Now for my real opinion on the matter, 1 watt at 2.4 GHZ does no go more than a few miles, so you are not going to be bothering anyone unless you are flying over New York City.... I am a ham, but if I did not have a license, I would run my transmitter when needed and not worry about it. It just wont make any difference to anyone.
