Hi Peter,

How about we start out with the Australian WiFi record?  I believe the 
W.A. guys established a fairly long link out to Rottnest Island some 
time back.  However, I know of no longer link than Peter Buncle's hop 
from Kallista to the original Highton location at around 100 Km's.

A Picnic/BBQ trip to Mt Buninyong would give us a path of 127 Km back to 
node GHO at Mt Dandenong.

I donated a 2.4 m domestic sat dish and Rob B built up a 2.4 GHz feed 
and tripod for the dish.  They are still sitting in my shed ready for 
such a project.
