Re: wanted: wireless magic tricks

	I believe there are limitations on antenna gain and total EIRP in 
those frequency bands which would make it difficult - if not impossible - 
to get any kind of link budget over that distance.  I could be wrong, but 
that's my reading of 47 CFR Part 247(I think that's the correct citation).
