Ethertype 0x8948 is already assigned (although not listed on the IANA's page for Ethertypes, which is not the definitive listing of Ethertypes).  If you have a need for an Ethertype, you should reference RFC 7042 (Section 3) and the IANA's IEEE 802 Numbers page (  for more information.  Donald Eastlake (primary) and Juan Carlos Zuniga (secondary) are the IANA-designated experts for Ethertypes.

One of my collaborators (RSU manufacturer) asked me in private which 
EtherType to use  other than the allocated 0x8947 for GeoNetworking, on 
which to send CAM messages from car to Road-Side Units that use empty 
GeoNetworking and BTP headers.

These are not IP messages, but are transmitted on IEEE 802.11 OCB.  They 
do contain ETSI GeoNetworking headers but these headers are empty 
because we dont trust their necessity.

We agreed to put such CAMs with empty GeoNetowrking headers present both 
on cars and on Road-Side Units, we agreed to put at a particular 5.9GHz 
channel, but we explore which EtherType to use.

Is there some 'trial' EtherType for vehicles, which would not disturb 
others, be future proof, be available immediately (in the following 

I thought to suggest 0x8948 (the next after 0x8947) but I dont know.
