Well, if you're using an antenna designed for a wavelan card, then you're
fine - there are antennas which were approved for such use.

FCC approval is one reason to only use a single design - it's probably not
cost effective to design mutliple designs and get them all approved.
Every time you want to change any aspect of the RF design of the thing,
you must submit eachand every (PCI, ISA, NuBus, PCMCIA, ethernet, etc.)
version for FCC testing. With a PCMCIA derived design, you have a single
approved card, and can produce an interface trivially.
