and kiss goodbye to most radio services below 30Mhz once it gets into
widespread deployment and if they achieve 200Mbit/s as listed in another
story then nothing below 200Mhz is safe. FM Radio at 88->108Mhz,
Aircraft at 108->136Mhz, Low band VHF 2-way radio which is excellent in
mountainous terrain would all suffer badly.
