[AUBREY] Tower Sites Active

Post by KD7CAO » Sun Mar 29, 2015 3:49 pm

As many of you have been following along the DCARA has been working hard to build out sites for all interested in BBHN to participate. Yesterday, March 28, 2015 several hams got together and installed a Part 15 link at the Aubrey tower site directed to TWU Guinn Hall. The link is functioning, however link quality tests show it to be at 50% or less. We hope re-aiming the link at Guinn will bring it into alignment.

In addition to the link being installed, a 2.4 GHz Rocket was installed on the tower. One has a South facing panel while the other is East. Both are 120 degree panels. So if you are in the coverage area of Aubrey tower try linking up with the latest firmware.

The signal is holding at about 72% on my Air Grid with a very temporary mast. I hope that connecting to a more permanent structure will allow it to stabilize.

Moved this to the BBHN Announcements forum and added the [AUBREY] note to the title for more specificity.
