1. A method for wireless communication by a wireless local area network (WLAN) apparatus, the method comprising:
generating a packet for transmission via a wireless channel, wherein generating the packet includes using partial channel puncturing to omit transmission signals at a first sub-20 MHz portion of the wireless channel that overlaps a first bandwidth exclusion zone; and
transmitting the packet via the wireless channel, wherein at least part of the packet utilizes transmission signals at a second sub-20 MHz portion of the wireless channel that does not overlap the first bandwidth exclusion zone.
