Google earth is your friend there,
Draw a ruler line to the far node, then zoom in on your node and pick a
local landmark like the corner of the neighbors roof or similar

Thanks again for your replies.
I remember looking into Melbourne wireless about 5 years ago it must
have been and there wasn't much around from memory.
The whole reason I jumped back onto it was because KFI was showing up as
an AP on my laptop in the lounge room with the melbournewireless
We are relatively high up, so I'd like to try pointing at the Leopold AP
to see if I have any success.
What's the best way to position the antenna so its pointing as directly
as possible to the AP?

I'm not sure if you'd be able to hit node KFI, but it looks like you
should have very good line of sight to KHI up on the Leopold hill.
We're running both standard 2.4gig and Ubiquiti 802.11n 5gig AP's up
there, so if you have something handy that you can point in that general
direction, have a scan and see if you can pick it up.

I'm located in Belmont, Geelong.
I registered the node and its call sign is KIP.

I'm new to all this and just looking to get some information.
I've trawled through the resources on the website and was just
keen on some assistance to take it on from here.
I couldn't find much information regarding the Geelong area. I
seem to be surrounded by quite a few members, so it looks as though I'd
be in business regarding getting setup.
Is there anyone in particular I can contact to get some more
