Sounds cool

What do you propose regarding the Mr Dandenong end - we link into GHO?

cheers Peter

  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.

    Hi all

    Would anyone out there be interested in attempting the world unamplified 2.4 ghz wifi record?

    The record I think is held by some Venezuelans (some Italians hold the 5.7 Ghz record).

    The strategy would be as follows

    1. Use an established MW node such as GHO North as one end of the link.

    2. Go about 400 km+ in the direction the node antenna is pointing and erect a node and directional antenna, perhaps solar powered, with a small computer and high gain antenna pointing at the MW node. Perhaps our friends at the Adelaide wireless group could set up a node in their group pointing at us?  

    3. Monitor 2.4 ghz beacons and when there is some tropospheric ducting try the link. Or better still just automate things so that when the station is heard it automatically tries to transfer a video from one end of the link to the other.

    Successful transfer of video = world record
