Remember the 9-11 high-jacked aircraft that the hostages crashed into
It was widely reported that _numerous cellphone_ conversations went on
hostages and their families and etc...
Some 20 years ago, on a private aircraft flight, I received permission
the opportunity of using my 1 watt 450 MHz Icom 4AT at ~35K feet altitude.
I can assure you - kerchunking a common frequency pair _very enlightening_.
At that altitude I had tri-state simplex coverage, unreal!

Would one or two watts at 2GHz make it over 5-6 miles to ground to
antennas which are optimized for ground signals? I'm thinking how
difficult it is with WiFi without high gain antennas.
