I tend to agree with Bob.  Democracy has been described as "mob rule" and
in this case the mob has part-15 devices.  Another nice result of placing a
2.4 GHz beacon on the air is that ham radio will be shown to occupy this
band better.

BTW "moving to the country" isn't likely to help.  Alaska (pop 600,000) is
known to have the highest percapita internet use in the country!  Not much
to do on a cold dark winter's night!  So I suspect eventually I will get
surrounded by RFI.

My Panasonic 2.4G SS phone seems not to interfer with my station?
