Non-Traditional 802.11 frequencies

Mon Jan 30, 2012 9:04 am

This is an off the wall question for most of you, but does anyone know if anyone is making 802.11 (or any protocol for that matter) wireless cards in higher frequencies? I am thinking 10GHz, 18GHz or maybe 23/24GHz spectrum.

Looking specifically for Amateur Radio use. I know there is a lot of the 2.3-2.4GHz and the 5.6-5.9GHz spectrum available, and a lot of cards will do those, but I was hoping to stay out of the SOHO / WISP spectrum, as to not interfere with each other.

Please let me know if you do know of any vendors, projects, thoughts or ideas you have had or may know about.

Thank you.

There are frequency convertors that raise up 5ghz to 10ghz or even higer . You can use standard CM9 card with freq convertor to get 10GHz. Also Ubiquity has new product PowerBridge M10 that operates in 10Ghz spectrum..

If you find some "24GHz card" you will never be able to transport signal from it to antena wthout too much loss, interference or other unwanted issues. This is why are High frequency units using converters or transponding units direct on antena. So ill go this way. Also DVB-S is using converter adding something over 9GHz that direct on the antena, and the cable dont need to transport so high frequency signal.
