You might want to look into the possibility of paying a licence for a
specific frequency where you will be able to do more and be less
regulated,/restricted than unlicensed frequencies.
The investment might be cheap depending on the country.

I am also looking into HAMM Radio Repeaters and some time ago i sold a
few routers for HSMM (http://www.broadband-hamnet.org/)

I got an amateur lisence about a year ago, to do some experiments with transferring data in a community in rural france.  I am interested in lower frequency, lower bandwidth, communication.  Many new projects seem to be using higher and higher frequencies (5Ghz etc), but for very rural areas something more robust is needed, and perhaps having high bandwidth is not so important.

Im am not from any specific project but I would like to come to battlemesh Leipzig with some wifi routers which work on 430Mhz amateur band, for experimentation.  This is a bit of a legal grey-area, but it is an idea for discussion rather than a practical proposal.  See http://ehion.com/~ameba/mediawiki/index.php/430mhz_data_transfer
