One simple test would be to set the txpower to 1dbm.

There is no need to shout that loud if your neighboor is 5m away.

And/or fix the bitrate to a particular value (5mbps for ex).

Also, there is a need for a map of airtime consumption, you cannot
understand the results without understanding the physical layer.

I listened to the discussion about the testbed yesterday, to have
worked on the tested for wbmv1-4, I came to the conclusion there is a
need to have an outdoor tested to validate the tests. There is low
chance that you gonna get scientific reproductible results out of a
testbed made up during WBM, at least I gave up on that.

I think Dave has a location in California where a permanent setup
could be installed.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
