I was confused about some rumors from a friend to have a full duplex
radio in 802.11a.

After some research, I found out that the atheros ar5xxx is a software
radio, and that it uses 2 channels in 5ghz to have a 108MB/s mode.

I think there were some discussions at WTH about having a modified
version of the openbsd openhal to have a full duplex radio.

The main problem right now with OLSR is the half duplex layer of the
radio, where bandwidth is decreasing after 4 or 5 hops.

Are there any plans to help the openbsd coders in that project?
