The new 802.11D devices like I've got operate at 2.4Ghz because
         1) its easy to do spread spectrum there
         2) its the same frequency as most microwave ovens so the spectrum
            is considered 'junk.'

The note with the card said, "do not operate closer than 2.5" to your skin
for extended periods of time." No definition of 'extended' as far as I
could tell. Now the microwave is 500 - 750 watts I believe and this thing
is less than 2 so we're not talking about roasting here.
