In the USA, the limit is 1 watt output.  You can take all the gain you
can get thru antennas.  There is a restriction to not use "repeaters".
The rules don't really say what a repeater is, but it's generally
mean't each end-point must be something useful besides a pair of
radios.

It would be a very good idea.

To comply with USA/FCC Part 97, you would have run the specific
spreading sequence listed in Part 97.  The NCR units don't.
In fact, I've heard they have a dismal processing gain of 10dB!
