Probably the best answer to your several questions (and more) is given in
the ARRL Spread Spectrum Source Book, which AMRAD authored. Not too much
has happened in SS in general in the amateur bands except for recent
interest in IEEE 802.11b, which can operate in the 2400-2450 MHz band under
Part 97 so long as FCC rules are observed. The ARRL's High Speed Multimedia
(HSMM) working group is developing applications. There has been some
material on the ARRL Web site and a QST article is in the works.
