[Olsr-users] HSMM-Pi Project using OLSRD

Hi Ben,

It's my understanding that HAMs in the US have primary privileges only on channels 1-6 of the 802.11b/g/n spectrum.  Users of that spectrum wanting to avoid interference or degraded services are best off using channel 7 and up, which is why a lot of consumer wireless access points have a default channel or 7 or higher.  I am not encouraging people to blast their neighborhood with 1500 watts on channel 1, but their obligations to their neighbors are no different than when transmitting on the HF/VHF/UHF frequencies (in the US).

That is, what are interference mitigations, whether caused toward other users of the band, or vice versa?

The project is HSMM-Pi (https://github.com/urlgrey/hsmm-pi), and it turns a Raspberry Pi into a High-Speed Multimedia (HSMM) wireless mesh node.  The OLSRD daemon and its assortment of plugins are truly amazing!  I'm very grateful to the OLSRD developers for creating such an excellent tool.
