How about a startup that writes this sort of free/oss RTL so that companies can release everything about their drivers? Maybe this would be better as a bounty?
If this existed, companies could sell their chips without drivers and users would have to deal with FCC discovered misuse themselves maybe?
How does the GNU USRP get sold? What does the FCC think about it?
Anyway, hardware specs and open firmware is of value to me, so I'd pay a startup to do it.
The earlier post that mentioned the balloon board is the sort of thing I'd like to have, but with desktop sized power. Maybe the Movidis x16 with totally open drivers?
