Re: It stupidity anyway

I agree as well. When I first underwent certification training for line of equipment, I was given the rule of thumb; the higher the frequency, the more it acts like light. at the time we were talking 2.4 and 5.8 and that 5.8 would give near line of site, because it would reflect off of things while 2.4 was a lower frequency and it needed line of site. Also part of that rule of thumb is that the signals wouldn't penetrate solid water. A rainstorm is solid water as is a tree. 24 GHz would be good for setting up short hop meshes which, I think, is the idea.
