Wireless access points can be easily overloaded by ONE bandwidth hog and if being used on the 900mhz, 2.4ghz, or 5.8ghz bands can be easily and completely wiped off the air with just ONE ham operator in the area or by a simple complaint of interference to the FCC

Since these are ALL ham radio bands, ham operators are allowed to transmit up to 1000 watts where these access points are limited by law to only ONE watt of power

And unless these people are ACTUAL RF engineers with experience in making this work in hilly terrain and in MOVING vehicles, it will be spotty at best

Not something you want lives depending on
