-[Node BAE] (formerly in Hawthorn and the provider of the Internet link for the MW Annual Christmas BBQ on the Yarra) has moved to Bridge Road Richmond halfway between Church and Burnley. 
+In late November 2009 I established a weak link (-86dBm) in the 5GHz band to HVC at a distance of 3Km. We are currently testing to improve the strength and reliability of the link. 
 
-Currently testing a Motorola Canopy link to [Node HVC] in the city in order to gain access to the backbone. The Motorola Subscriber Module (SM) is mounted in front of a Conifer reflector using a home-made mount on a 3 metre length of 61mm diameter steel tube. Have discovered I could have purchased aluminium tube for same price as mild steel and of teh same diameter. The antenna system is now very rigid but there is no sign of the Canopy AP in the city. Tim has been given the Subscriber Module in order to determine that it is correctly configured.

+Currently testing a Ubiquiti Bullet 5 link to [Node HVC] in the city in order to gain access to the backbone. The Bullet 5 is connected to a 15dBi parabolic given to me by MW sponsor Duxtel. The antenna is mounted on a 3 metre length of 61mm diameter steel tube, the base of which rests on my roof. I have discovered I could have purchased aluminium tube for same price as mild steel and of the same diameter. 
 
 Have been contacted by [Node KGC] who is nearby and will commence testing shortly.
