K6JAC, KG6SJT, K6WLS and myself installed two new BBHN nodes at K6JAC's QTH yesterday. They are on his tower at about the 30 ft level.

AG6QO-700 is a Ubiquiti AirGrid 20dB dish, pointed at the node at the Berryessa repeater site (AG6QO-500). AG6QO-800 is co-located with -700 and is a Ubiquiti Bullet with an 8dB Omni antenna to serve the local area.

For some reason, connection with the repeater site did not occur immediately as it did during preliminary ground tests earlier. AG6QO-500 is not being heard at all today.

K6WLS and I will be investigating that on Sunday. Meanwhile these new nodes are available to anyone who can hit them. Please note that these nodes are all running V1 of the BBHN firmware. Upgrade is planned after all planned nodes are communicating reliably.

Update... There are now two Ubiquiti nodes at the repeater site on Mt. Berryessa, AG6QO-600 is a 120 sector antenna and AG6QO-900 is a 20dB AirGrid pointing at K6JAC. At K6JAC, we have another AirGrid AG6QO-700 pointing at Berryessa Peak and an omni, AG6QO-800. The two air grids have LQ of 100%. These are permanently installed on battery backed power. This is a 16 mile link with stock power and antennas.


K6WLS-100 is able to connect to both Berryessa nodes with another AirGrid in Woodland. A 21 mile link! But we are still trying to determine a permanent location for his nodes.
