I did see the 450MHz N=1 Flash-OFDM working in Brataslava. I think they
are now on N=2
The Irish system is the World's first 870/920MHz N=3 Flash-OFDM, I'm
fairly sure the Finnish & Slovak drivers don't work here (we did try
about 3 months ago). But it may show me what I need to change on the
Source I have.
The original OFDMA HW / Chip was able to support N=2 and N=3 systems as
it has TWO simultaneous OFDM receivers, one can monitor potential base
stations which one is used for data transfer.
The Finnish and Slovak cards don't work here as they are not dual band.
(N=3, 3 x1.25MHz bands in the 4MHz Comreg allocation).
