Amateur Radio channels / HAL

Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


I am currently working on a project that uses Atheros based 802.11a products for amateur radio networks. I am requesting an addition to the "countrycode" and/or "regdomain" list in the HAL that will allow the use of 802.11b/g channels 1-6 inclusive and 802.11a channels 132-165 inclusive at full power. Currently the only way that I can do this is to set the countrycode to 0x00 and allow all channels (even unwanted ones).

What would also be beneficial is a 2.5 MHz channel width. I think outside the amateur world there may also be an interest in this as WiMax? has selectable channel widths down to 1.5 MHz.
