IEEE 802.11y-2008; 3650 to 3700 MHz band

Anyone see this.

http://en.wikipedia.org:80/wiki/802.11y

Wonder if the Ubiquiti XR3 will support this?

Probably not, the XR3 uses an Atheros AR5413 chip which is 802.11a based. RouterOS sees the card running in the 5Ghz range as a 802.11a card.
Ubiquity could create a new card that could operate with the new 802.11y-2008 MAC. But since Ubiquity normally uses Atheros chips, they might need to wait for Atheros or someone else to create a new chip to operate in accordance to the 802.11y-2008 standard.
