I was thinking more along the lines of something in the UHF or microwave bands which would allow me to run relatively long distance encrypted data links, for internet link or remote control, but yeah, I guess these days you can just get a bunch of high-powered Chinese WiFi equipment and do it anyway.
It might be interesting, however, to "incentivize" use of some portion of certain underused VHF or HF bands by loosening up restrictions. At least the "idiots" might be useful beacons! Or are all the bands full down in CA and back East?
