Huh? Remove outside 5745-5825 MHz frequency channels for US country (all M series devices)

Why would you need to remove the legal frequencies?
Yep, that can happen

Because they are NOT legal to use with UBNT gear in the US. Their FCC Grant is only for 5745 to 5825!
When and IF they ever get approved for 5400 to 5700 I am sure they will put them back in.
One can always get around it but I do not recommend it by selecting another domain and or using the Compliance Test with a channel list.

Chill and check the release notes and the title of this post, they mistyped. :manwink:

I think gunther is just saying that It's confusing the way they wrote it in the release notes.
"- New: Remove outside 5745-5825 MHz frequency channels for US country (all M series devices)"
It sound like they are removing the legal channel 5745-5825 MHz for outdoor products.
When what they are really saying is that they are removing everything outside of the 5745-5825 MHz range.

Yeah, sometimes a person's first and second language grammar can get mixed and lead to some creative sentence structure. :manwink: :manhappy:

Yep. I read that to mean remove the legal frequencies. The "outside/outdoor" freqs that were listed.

Yes, the rest of the freqs that were available are not to be used on these products. And I commend UBNT for disabling them.

Now someone has to purposely re-enable those freqs by other means. So, at least it will get that OP's attention, and maybe save us all (WISP'S) from FCC problems.
Yep, that can happen

This is a good reason to use a
tech writer to write materials
in standard English. There are
similar phrase errors in the WIKI
docs and the AirOS manuals. Dave

The US licenced range is actually 5.725 through 5.825.

You guys cut it a little shorter! :icon_frown:

I was not "un chilled", I was just expressing the legal limit. What can I say, I am just a passionate kind of guy who loves using bold, and explanation marks, along with the color red! :icon_confused:
Aww man someone deducted another Carma/Credibility point on me again, I have gone from like 15 to 8 to 10 now to 9. At this rate I am doomed to be a dung beetle in my next life :icon_cry:

Chris, if it makes you feel better, I
went from 32 to 20 in one hour. It
wasn't people on the forum--it
was somebody in the 'back room'. Dave

Wasn't me man LOL.. I knew what you meant, and am as passionate about that topic. It just seems it's a "missed in translation" release note line :manhappy:
Yep, that can happen
