Re: Microwave oven

It's the other way around, 2.45GHz was added to the ISM list because early experiments in microwave cooking used it.

That may be true (and thanks, I wasn't aware of that) as the historic origin of the 2.45GHz ISM band but I don't believe I was incorrect to say that, now, in this modern age, "the only reason they use 2.45GHz is that it's the most suitable of a number of freely usable bands for ISM". The history is irrelevant to the explanation of the current use, although I see where you're coming from :)
