(Note: FreeBSD has had in-tree support for 4.9GHz and 900MHz bands
since forever. I'm actually thinking of extending it to include 5.9
and other UHF bands to cover licenced hardware people are making but
then leaving the support disabled unless you compile in very specific
licenced bits. No, it doesn't work out of the box unless your NIC
actually supports it in the calibration section.)

(Note note: some of those channels have non-megahertz boundaries,
which means ... yeah, hello inter-operability boundaries. Hilarious.)
