I dont agree tony,  although I would not want to willing interfere with 
others,  I have a studied for and payed for
entitlement to utilize certain portions of the spectrum.  ATV would only 
need to be around 15MHz at the bottom
of the band so wifiers who may suffer any non intentional interference 
could change freq,  as is there option, where
as,  I as a 2.4GHz ATVer have limited options as to band planning for 
said mode.

To highlight and example,  LIPD,  dont they cause us havoc on 70cm,  yet 
they are entitled to utilize these devices and
we must suffer interference from them,  thank god for CTCSS!!

Now what would be good to see,  would be transverters for WiFi Hams that 
could take the 2.4GHz wifi and upconvert
it to the 9cm, 6cm, 3cm and/or 1.25cm bands with un-restricted power 
output,  mmmhhhh hhhmmmm.  :>)

But that is off topic.
