Well, not much of a subject title but for a door opener I'll settle for that.  I thought I'd cast a pebble into the BBHN pond and see what happens for the Indiana/OH border area along I-70 maybe?  Hamilton, OH? Maybe over into Dayton?  Hoping this forum might be of some value.

I have three Linksys units up 'n running and talking to each other in the  house.  My first attempt and it worked out.  Yes, I know the big focus is Ubiquity but the WRT boxes were really easy to come by and, cost effective for me right now.  Might be a good way to test the waters in this area without a big outlay.

I'm working toward VOIP, IRC, messaging, APRS, and finding ways to use a mesh daily.  Not just for a special event or strict public service.  I'm thinking that I'll probably have the mesh up for my own use until someone else makes a node and has a try with it.  Now, as for a site survey, that's another matter.  I need to look at that and look at external antennas now too.

But, that said, my mesh is up.  Nothing official to put on a map yet but the first step has been taken.  I'm hoping to do a "show 'n tell" at the next Races meeting at the EOC.

Located about 35 miles West of Dayton and about 60 miles East of Indianapolis, give or take.
