DASH7 vs. Bluetooth

JP Norair and I have the opportunity to meet lots of people interested in DASH7 and recently we were introduced to someone who tried, unsuccessfully, to deconstruct the facts around DASH7 and then argue that Bluetooth (the cable replacement technology some of us use for “hands free” mode in our cars or for some wireless headsets, mostly) could do
