NET-EL-SUB-862EXT-0x00 This is the same spec as the 'oldl' 862EXT BUT it is US FCC. It will therefore allow use bands A & C 5GHz bands. Because this allows these bands the user MUST ensure that it's use conforms to the local 5GHz operating restrictions applicable. e.g. for indoor use in the UK the equipment must conform to Band A IR2006 and, for outdoor Band C use in the UK, it must conform to IR2007.
