1,6,11 is to wireless as English is to business language. Trying to use Miller Analogies..
So while we deploy ETSI/Japan/MII to foreign countries to met Regulatory Domains, do they commonly deploy 1,6,11? Or do they use 1,5,9,13? What happens if a visitor with FCC client can't see channel 13? Do they have coverage gaps?
I went to Asia for 6 weeks last year and almost everyone in business spoke English. I guess you could call English the language of money. I also noticed my FCC A 802.11b laptop worked in all the hotels without issue.
