Channels 1 ~ 6 of your 802.11 internal logging lan fall in the ham
band. If you ID in any mode including within the traffic being sent then
you can consider these devices are operating as ham radios. So far
there are no rewards (extra points) for doing this and the sites I have
visited almost always work under part 15 rules. I have suggested to the
ARRL that a good reward for an internal all ham radio logging network
would be the elimination of the physical boundaries of the FD site. A
good reason for this is your current planned FD set up. Why park a
beautiful mobile unit next to a tent? The rules should allow you to
move the van to all the shopping centers (or libraries or what ever!)
and still allow you to operate with VWS as one site. Also scoring
should be real time!
Please take a look at my dog eared site for proposed FD rule changes.
And what a MESH we should make!
