Ah, for some reason I was thinking wavelan. Thanks.
The frequency-hoppers are a bit less interesting to me. I'm hoping to
find some direct-sequence cards.
The military comm stuff appears to be direct-sequence now. (They gave
up on frequency-hopping.) I'm seeing the same trend in wireless
I haven't seen any programmer specs for direct sequence cards yet, but
I'm assuming that they are all limited by crypto export restrictions
to enforce some nice and short and easily breakable spreading
