Hello

Does anyone know this?

I thought it was 1w for 5.8 and 4w for 2.4
but I am getting told is also 4w for 5.8

Thanks

ACMA approved power limits:
  • 915 MHz - 928 MHz Not exceeding 1W EIRP
  • 2400 MHz - 2483.5 MHz Not exceeding 4W EIRP
  • 5150 MHz - 5350 MHz Not exceeding 200mW EIRP
  • 5725 MHz - 5850 MHz Not exceeding 4W EIRP
So what's been suggested to you is half correct. The 5GHz ISM band is split into two parts in Australia - lower end is indoors, the upper end is outdoors. In the US I think there's a middle part that is either indoors/outdoors.

I haven't found anything regarding the newly released spectrum - I'm guessing it's still going through the paperwork machine...

Looking through the news section and found this too:
ACMA seeks comments on proposals for broadband wireless access services in regional areas in the band 1785-1795 MHz and remote areas in the band 1785-1805 MHz
Should I bug MT regarding the support of the random radio devices that will pop out to service these frequencies? :D
