Dave Täht pointed out that the FCC has proposed new rules (by issuing a Notification of Proposed Rule Making - NPRM) His one-line summary - "these fcc rules look bad")
The rest of this message has links for the BattleMesh presentation and for submitting public comments, etc. You can read the actual filing at: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2015/db0722/FCC-15-92A1.pdf
THE DEADLINE IS 16 AUGUST 2015 (NEXT SUNDAY). I plan to submit a comment saying that any rules that lock down the router firmware will hamper research into important networking technologies, and leave the US in a less competitive situation.
