Looking to experiment with equipment in this band. Problem is, there isn't a lot of info available. Ran across on 802.11 device that can be modified, but that was only one. There must be more out there. Looking for any info.

Interesting equipment. Looks like primarily transverters - 5760 to 144 MHz that might operate in the upper 5Ghz band. They also have antennas.

I'm also aware of a product that is made by Ubiquiti (sp?) for point-to-point microwave operations. I've seen a few sites that have those set up for networking - something like a backbone. Bit too pricey for me. Was looking for something less expensive and that I could build on.

Very helpful! Guessing I just needed the right search term in Google!

Much appreciate the help on this. I may have more questions, but this satisfies the immediate need.
