    We don't have an allocation on 50 milliHertz.

    Sorry, I cant find anywhere that he specifies the word "milliHertz" either in the text or the video, Just sayin....

    He did indeed. Look at the thread title.

    mHz is the abbreviation for "milliHertz".

    You found it!

    Not exactly. He said, "50mhz" and we can safely assume he meant 50 MHz, not 50 mHz. By the way, the word is 'millihertz', not 'milliHertz'.

    Nah.

    Hertz is a proper name. Go look up the IEEE dictionary.

    He said "milliHertz" (=mhz) .

    Do we have to ACT like amateurs?? Just correct what's wrong and move on. Don't defend things that are incorrect.

    Often best to do a little research first. You'll find that the H, and other letters derived from a proper name, is capitalized only in abbreviations, for example: mHz = millihertz, MHz = megahertz, dB = decibel, which is one tenth of one bel, named after Alexander Graham Bell, mW = milliwatt, named after James Watt, and so on.

    I am glad you did your own research and are now in line with the reality I enlightened.
