I think I was clear that the intended implementation is for multi-access in suburban/urban areas, not point-to-point. The signals will not be as clean as typical point-to-point connections.
I really don’t see a need to debate the need for FEC any further. Our measurements – including different digital radio formats -- show it will help. And there’s a reason why it’s so commonly used in so many different digital radio formats and modulation schemes. You may not agree. But I’m betting that pretty much the rest of the world is not wrong. ;-)

The 'plan' is to release the platform into the wild and enable the community to produce the SDR components needed/wanted for higher speeds - I don't see this a long-term goal, but a very short-term one. Much of the required software already exists, I'd be surprised if it's more than a month or two before the first, practical 56 kbps transmissions start to happen. I know that I'm going to be experimenting with this as soon as the unit is available. The beauty of SDR is that if the first efforts are less than stellar it's a simple matter to push new code out to one or more nodes, if need be.
