> When I run spectools I see a lot of high power spurious noise all over the spectrum. However, as soon as I start kismet, all of the spurious noise completely vanishes and the only thing left is the noise floor. Any ideas what is going on here? If you need, I can send you a screen capture which would probably better describe what I'm seeing.

If you're running a wireless card in the laptop next to the wispy, it'll be generating noise, especially if it's looking for a network to connect to (probing across all the channels).

Kismet puts the card in rx mode only, which prevents this.
