A few friends of mine are setting up a WAN around our Lenah Valley, a few of the other links have been checked out. Today we investigated the link from my place. It was always going to be a bit harder for my place, as there is a bit of a hill in the way, so we have opted for a 900MHz link. The initial test using the built in antenna worked well enough to give us a theoretical 3Mb/s. Whilst thats not much, it was also from just standing at the front door holding the antenna by hand. Hopefully with a more directional antenna we'll be able to get some more speed out of it.

First stop will be a yagi antenna:
