+__Status:__ waiting/gathering %%% 
+__Line of Sight__: 
+* North - no further than the railway line (800m) 
+* West - no further than about Elgar Rd (800m) 
+* South - no further than about Kingswood College (600m) 
+* South-East - a little further than the East Burwood Kmart (>5km) 
+* East - The dandenongs on the horizon (20km) but I'm not sure about what I can actually see in front of them 
+__Current Hardware/Software:__ 
+* PC Router 
+** 75Mhz Pentium 
+** 32Meg of RAM 
+** 100BaseTx NIC to LAN with 4 clients 
+** 10BaseT NIC to optus@home 
+** 11Mbps 802.11b wireless NIC for wireless clients 
+** [Debian] [GNU]/[Linux] 
+* One yet-to-be-modified 18dB [galaxy] antenna 
+__Probable Hardware/Software:__ 
+* several ex-[galaxy] antennas 
+* [AccessPoint]s to be mounted in antenna mast for point-to-point link (hopefully running Linux) connected by cat5 UTP with [PoE] 
+* an additional NIC in the router for each link 
+__Obstacles:__ 
+* [AccessPoint]s are too expensive so I may have to look for another solution 
+* No one to link to at this stage, although [NodeDBD] has expressed interest 
+__Progress:__ 
+* 24/04/02 - On Friday I got hold of my first galaxy antenna.  Tonight I went up on the roof and was able to see Kmart in East Burwood.  Hopefully I'll be able to get a link in this direction and from there a link towards the city.
