      O.k. someone owns this band huh?

      ...well...first I would love to know who was the genius who sold a
      supposedly public band to a private individual...I'd like to
      um......CONGRATULATE him on the brilliant sale

      Than I'd like to know exactly what is needed for me to set up a 2.4 Wireless
      LAN...license wise that is.... This is getting frustrating...I might as well
      go back to the old reliable smoke signals....

      Aha... Found the email - was on the TTCS list; Mike Tikalsingh:

      TTST does not own the airwaves, but the Government controls its use.

      The 2.4GHz range has been assigned to a local company and IS NOT an
      unlicensed band in T&T!

      I found this out when my company was thinking of doing some wireless
      communications 2 yrs ago. We had to scrap those plans!

      Be careful how you go!


      Now, note I never said 'owned', I said 'licensed'. Perhaps you could share
      your source? Mike said he had first hand knowledge of this, so I have to go
      with Mike until proven otherwise.

      Perhaps there has been a change?
