Hi,


I'm new around here in austin and I have an old WRT laying aorund. I decided to check this out and rekindle my old love for all things Ham and packet related .  I have this reflashed and I guess I just dont have enough signal where Im at or enough height.

I am in the same situation. If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound? If a node can’t mesh to anything… is it really a node? I would love to see a bunch more HAMs jump on the BBHN band wagon.

Yea, I could see if you are not even within another ham, it'd get more tricky. :D I hadn't done anything yet with the things they call *antennas* on it yet. I'd probably build something inexpensive that's directional. I wonder what people around here might do for that? I would probably run a minimal length of some coax to it from the ant connector(s) to either on top of some kind of portable mast system. What do you use? :D
