Have to agree - I've yet to see an illegal use at 11GHz - licensed stuff is expensive to start with and the FCC is really serious about finding violators. Their spectrum analyzer wouldn't even be all that useful in finding violators because of the narrow beamwidth of the antennas - the FCC has some really specialized stuff they use for this, and no chipset analyzer is going to do it... ;-)

Also 11ghz has very high gain, very narrow beam width antennas. I've used the unreleased AF11-FX spectrum analyzer and with the larger gain antennas, even channels off your licensed channel are very quiet. But this is not something you ever need to worry about with licensed spectrum.
