Answer in the radio regulations:

1.15 industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) applications (of radio frequency
energy): Operation of equipment or appliances designed to generate and use locally radio
frequency energy for industrial, scientific, medical, domestic or similar purposes, excluding
applications in the field of telecommunications.  (Emphasis supplied.)

So, no ISM for long distance work and, in fact, no telecommunication at all for ISM devices.

Seems pretty clear.

I hope this helps.
