This paper presents a detailed account of a novel scheme for finding profit optimal BFWA networks, extending an existing network optimisation tool, and using the principles of emergent, self-organising systems. We describe how populations of agents representing potential users and base sites will disseminate and react to `local' information to optimise global objectives. The use of two distinct types of agent entity allows the multi-objective profit/coverage nature of the optimisation to be satisfied. Preliminary results are presented to indicate the potential of the scheme.
