Subject: long distance in Perth
Yesterday we managed a 26.4km link from Doubleview to Lesmurdie
Perth. Best S/N we observed was -80dbm and the whole thing was
handheld. Elevation at Lesmurdie was 198m, and at Doubleview
Next weekend we should have an antenna mounted somewhat more
and we're looking at putting an access point up there if
performance is as
good as things are looking.
We'll let you know how we go, and this could potentially be
news for linking the smallish (and spread out) Perth networks
10dbi omni pacsat antenna
apple airport, 30dbm output model with pigtail straight into
Pole mounted from chimney mount (observe:
24dbi conifer antenna
FCC 30dbm cabletron roamabout card, very short (3m?) RG8
Total Distance: 26.4km
Best S/N: -80dbm (good for 5.5mbps easily)
I'm also pleased that the lobes coming out of that omni seem to
enough that we're getting a decent signal.
Thanks to Matt Lambie and Steve Bennett for assistance.
