> Perhaps the other difference is that the antennas on the Nodes are potentially much more directional. A 1 watt signal into a 30 dB antenna is equivalent to 1000 watts.

Antennas focus - they don't amplify.   A 1 watt signal is still 1 watt
- it's just focused in one direction instead of being spread out in
all directions.

Still worthy of concern and care, don't aim it at your eyes and run
low power when possible, but it's no microwave oven..
