    I should qualify what I meant. Using a Yagi on it's own is not illegal but the directed radio energy will exceed 4 watts. Operating a radio transmitter on an unlicensed frequency and exceeding 4 watts of effective power output is illegal.

    And isn't it also along the same as the old "power lines are bad for your health" chestnut?

    Geoff: Thats what I thought you were getting at but just wanted to clarify. Of course power of the signal isn't everything quality/noise of the link is more important.

    Re: Wireless solution to astroturf

    I thought the power restriction is before it reaches the coax and/or antenna?

    EDIT: here we are .... "In Europe the maximum signal that your antenna can transmit in ANY direction is 20 decibels. This is calculated by adding the wireless device transmit power (in decibels) to the antenna gain (in decibels)"

    No link to anything from Ofcom, but here it is.
