Node Log

09/10/10 - Installed a Ubiquiti Picostation M2HP (a 1 watt, 6db omni on 2.4 ghz) on the top of the mast to allow for connections to this node. Range tested to be about ~200 metres with a mobile phone without significant drop in signal reception, and will be attempting to do some further range / throughput tests in the near future using some proper directional equipment / proper range.

Routing seems to be working correctly to / from clients on the omni, and the subnet which ive been allocated and am using for the omni ( is being advertised to OSPF.

27/09/10 - Installed new mast on apex of roof. Link quality to KHI has improved drastically. Current signal strength at -71db, with an airmax signal quality of 45% and TCP throughput of about 5 megabytes per second.

Ordered a Ubiquity Picostation (1Watt Version) and hope to have that installed in two or three weeks.

29/05/10 - Installed Node (Ubiquiti Nanobridge M5) and secured link to KHI.

Current signal strength at -87db, with an AirMax signal quality of 38%.
Confirmed current maximum throughput of the link of ~500kilobytes per second.

Will put another mast on the apex of the roof, which should raise the current height of ~5 metres to approx 8 metres. Once this is done, ill put an omni on top and allow others to connect.


Ubiquiti NanoBridge M5 (Linked to KHI)
Ubiquiti PicoStation M2HP (1 Watt / 6db Omni )

All Ubiquity devices run Ubiquity AirOS.


Elaborate on services seen on the maps page (replace XXX with your node id). The node must be in testing or operational to be listed


Planned: Ubiquiti NanoBridge M2 (to link to JEE)
