+09/07/2009 - Mast is up for testing, first thing i can say is very heavy! It may only be 10kg all up, but 7m of leverage makes it seem so much more. Need to affix more guy ropes from the base to the mast, to stop any swap and keep it at a firm 90deg upright. 
+Happy i got it up and running, already seeing +2 to +4 dBi gain on some local AP's in the neighborhood. Still have 2.5m~ of height left if need be. 
+Hoping to test with local nodes soon. 
 04/07/2009 - First Entry. Recently purchased an Asus WL-520GU after having no luck hunting down a pre V5 WRT54G, looks like everyones snapped them up. 
 
 Started on making an antenna mast. I'm renting a new house, so additions are a no-go (ones that are visible ;). Planning to make the mast free standing with 2x4" pine, 100mm PVC and a road safety bollard i stole many year ago. Picture it like a packing crate, with the bollard held in the middle, with the PVC slipped over that. I have up to 8m of PVC available, but will probably only use 6m, wind would have too much leverage to knock the mast over, and would require more LMR-400 (currenly have 5m).
