Spelling: WeatherProofing



WHY?

An good way to improve the signal coming from the top of your antenna
mast is to reduce the length of coaxial cable [1] used between your
antenna and WiFiWife, Fifi, Wini [2] device. The best way to reduce the length of coax
[3] is to place your WiFiWife, Fifi, Wini [4] device on the mast above your roof -
which means you will need to protect the sensitive electronics in your
AccessPointAccess Point, Access-Point, Excepting, Excerpting, Except, Excerpt, Expound, Excellent, Expand, Expend [5] from the elements.

HOW?

The idea is simple - put your AccessPointAccess Point, Access-Point, Excepting, Excerpting, Except, Excerpt, Expound, Excellent, Expand, Expend [6] in a Weather Proof
enclosure. Execution isn't always that easy, but is relatively
straighforwardstraightforward, straightforwards, straightforwardly all the same.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

Your average AccessPointAccess Point, Access-Point, Excepting, Excerpting, Except, Excerpt, Expound, Excellent, Expand, Expend [7] is not designed to live in the great
outdoors, they have specific operational requirements:

* All electronics generate heat, hence all devices need some means of
keeping cool. Some devices fail at temperatures as low as 45 degrees
celcius!
* Water is almost certainly going to destroy whatever it comes in
contact with, including WeatherProofWeatherproof, Weather Proof, Weather-Proof, Weatherproofs, Weatherproofed, Waterproof, Weatherproofing [8] enclosures after long periods
of time.
* Wireless is fantastic, but realistically there are some cables
involved.
