Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti Radios as routers

2012-10-12 Thread Dustin Jurman
Hey Fred,  we did exactly that with our Hardee County Network, we use licensed 
links between MEF switches.  Rapid deployment with fiber forward design.

I think we have been through all configurations,  bridging, routing and layer2 
switching.  You could not hit the nail on the head any better here.

The advantages of this type of design include scaleability, performance and 
reduced opex.

There could be one NAT, at the access point.

My taste, which to be sure I haven't tested at scale in a wireless network (but 
plan to), is to follow what is becoming standard wireline practice and do 
switching, not bridging, at layer 2.  Routing would then be lumped into one 
place, making it easier to manage.

The problem with small Linux-based systems (this includes both UBNT and MT) is 
that they don't tend to have switching documented or set up in the UI, even if 
it's possible.  Bridging is bad -- it was designed for orange hose Ethernet, 
and it passes broadcast traffic to everyone.  We invented this at DEC in the 
1980s and discovered how it doesn't scale too well -- we had a couple of 
thousand DECnet and IP nodes on a bridged LAN, and the background broadcast 
traffic level was 400 kbps.  This was a lot for systems to handle in 1991.  I 
was testing ISDN bridges and discovered how you can't just bridge that type 
of network across a 56k connection.  (I discovered the traffic when I first 
turned up the bridge.  I ended up isolating it behind a router, built from an 
old VAX.  At DEC, we built everything ouf of VAXen.)

Switching, though, is what Frame Relay and ATM do, and now Carrier Ethernet is 
the big thing for fiber.  It uses the VLAN tag to identify the virtual circuit; 
the MAC addresses are just passed along.  Since it's connection-oriented (via 
the tag), it can have QoS assigned.  I think it's theoretically possible to tag 
user ports, route on tags and set QoS on RouterOS, but it's not obvious how to 
do it all.  Switching doesn't pass broadcast traffic; it provides more 
isolation and privacy than plain routing.  Mesh routing then works at that 
layer, transparent to IP.  It'll be interesting to set up.

WISPA did have a group of people that were attending meetings and trying to
sway policy. The time schedule has just been published and hopefully rules
and definitions will be firmed up shortly. 

WISPA could start delivering a facts sheet,  Timeline and useful resources. 

WISPA should get vendors together to monetize the event as part of the
communications effort. 

Maybe the board should think about a short term position to do this where
someone makes some bucks managing this and the communications /
opportunities for WISPA and the Members.

Charles is right 100%, and he is being as proactive as any VAR (including DR
and ourselves... Charles did a WiNOG on this not to long ago) trying to
figure the mess out so you can get the money (hopefully you'll spend it with
us right!).  

Here is what I know (and I've done more research and had more conversations
than I think I cared to):

- No one knows where the money is going to go or who is going to get it.
Some people think the States are going to get all the money, others that
Fiber will get all of the money, Telco's will get it, only people that have
received RUS funding in the past will get it, etc.  No one has a clear idea
of where the money is going, so it's hard to say what anyone can do to help
you get the money except give you an idea of what the RUS process is like.

- Realistically, the only (and best) thing WISPA can do is provide a forum
for people to discuss what they are doing to get the money, and WISPA can
help lobby the government to get the money into our hands.  I wouldn't
expect WISPA to provide a grant in a box widget :-)

- Many people are arguing already that if you haven't already filed
paperwork, you're not going to get any money.  It's amazing how many people
have already put in RUS applications to get this money, before the rules on
who is going to get it has been defined!

- There are a 1,000 people now that think they are going to get a million
dollars from the Government to start a WISP... I'm afraid they are going to
crash and burn Metricom style.  So while an incumbent might be the better
choice to get the money, the packages newcomers are putting together are
pretty impressive.  But I digress... because...

- Personally, I'm going to be surprised if the WISP industry gets even 10%
of the money... the sad thing being we can do much more with it than the
people that probably will get it.

Anyways, I wouldn't expect any reseller/distributor/trade organization to
give you the secret sauce on how to get that money.  Sure we are all doing
research to try to help people get money, but it doesn't mean they will be
right (I've seen some pretty interesting ideas on who/how people are going
to get money... some that I've wanted to laugh at).  So I would start
looking at filling out some of the RUS paperwork, and gathering as much
information as you can.  In the long run, if you want the money, YOUR going
to have to go get it... everyone else can help though :-)

From someone who's successfully navigated this process in various

Donny Bell, a WISP out of Minnesota mentioned that he spent in excess of
$250k in time / effort / manpower / legal fees for his first RUS loan

Keep in mind too, if you take a look at the comments on the stimulus

deep pockets and plenty of lawyers and DC lobbying) -- the competition

Re: [WISPA] Lightning protection

2008-12-29 Thread Dustin Jurman
A combination of surge protection and proper grounding is the key.  We
utilize a multi-point ground tester and find a large portion of our sites
have poor grounds (less then 5 Ohms to earth) or some crack head stole the
buss bars and copper. (Very likely in FLA).  Testing has become part of our
semi-annual maintenance. We also utilize static dissipaters to reduce the
conditions for lightning to form around the site as well as surge
protectors.

As far as Transtectors, The large one for the canopy is very well designed
and works well.  We have replaced all of the ALPU-ORT (PTP Transtector
versions) with the new Motorola units.  They stand up better, are made for
hanging on towers and don't fill with water after baking in the sun for a
few years.

[WISPA] RB532 and 40MBps

2008-07-16 Thread Dustin Jurman

Processor speed is only part of the answer to the RISC, CISC battle and this
type of radio design.  Things flow in a logical operation and waiting occurs
on the systems buses in the PC based design.  

Processor
Cache
Memory bus
Memory
Systems bus
Ect..

Designs in the different buses or systems architectures, Bus mastering
controllers, custom ASICs, as well as memory refresh strategy and ect.. all
produce the end result.  As you move down the list or through the system,
each subsystem runs slower and slower, if you don't have custom ASIC's and
have to come back to the proc for filtering and stuff like that, then you
continue to tie the bus up.  Most vendors provide performance charts based
on minimum configuration but as you start adding thing like NAT, IP Filters
and stuff like this you put more pressure on the proc and ultimately more
pressure on the bus adding wait states, interrupt requests, ect, ect.

 Question is Why does teh 600 series outperform them all, when it

 Are Mikrotik's 532a speeds test at 266 or 400Mhz? And the 600 series 
 at 200 or 400? They did specify on their report.

 Is the 600's Power PC's processor really that much better that it gets 
 so much better speed at slower Mhz?

While I can not speak of it in use between these two routers, there is a
reason why it was logical to move to RISC. They are more efficient chips and
tend to be even more so when they are used in specific environments. If
anyone is a Mac head from way back, you might remember the raw numbers
between the 40MHz 68030 and the 25MHz PowerPC when Apple first moved to
them.

Re: [WISPA] unlic wimax on 3.65

2008-06-30 Thread Dustin Jurman
A while back Jack Unger explained how to get your product and antenna
through FCC licensing (Certified System).  If you are doing this and you
have UBNT radio's then I believe he said that the costs of certification
could be less because you would only have to do a mini certification.  I
also believe he suggested that he could assist with the process for a fee.
If you need something right away then I would suggest that you consider
doing something like this yourself,  asking WISPA for some help, or possibly
getting with other WISPA members in need.  

Current WIMAX gear is limited to 7.5 mhz channels at max so you're only
going to produce a certain amount of bandwidth (18 meg at the port).
UBNT cards can run at 20mhz and if you can get them tested they can run
closer to 29.00 real world bandwidth. (Tested at the port in the lab on
UBNT cards).

If I'm wrong about that Jack can slap me for mis-understanding a post.

Re: [WISPA] Dickson tn

2008-06-26 Thread Dustin Jurman
Disclaimer like Marlon as we are a dealer of MRV and Lightpoint but these
are my unbiased reviews.

MRV has been a solid product for short shots.  I haven't had the cleaning
and reaiming problem that some have claimed.  It's really a matter of using
the right mounts and learning how to aim these things.  Like anything else
you do a path calc and have a number to shoot for.  The MRV's have an
digital reading in the back telling you how hot you are, other units have a
series of LEDS.  The MRV is one of the best built units around and I like
the POE unit to ease installation VS some of the other systems available.  

I have had nothing but trouble out of LightPoint and would encourage folks
to use Plantree or MRV.  

Plain tree is interesting because of the fact that are LED based.

What do others here do in situations where a mesh has multiple gateways?

Say you have a large mesh and each egrees is a satellite uplink to a 
different ISP provider.

Would you just assign multiple gateways on the DHCP server?

Or would you use something like RADIUS to assign different network 
parameters to different users?

  Hi Jory,
Tuesday, July 31, 2007

  Hopefully you haven't forgotten me since a lot of water has passed
under the bridge since I last communicated with you regarding the T-1 to T-3
level mobile wireless Internet service that is soon to be launched on the
world. 

  Well, you may have thought that we went away but it was only a
temporary delay.  First of all I want to apologize to you for the early
notification that turned out to be a false summit.  We had felt that launch
was eminent when we sent out the cards late last year. The setback was only
temporary though and we are finally emerging from the quiet time and able to
share what is going on with everyone.

  I have included the last 7 months of short notes from ItsYourNet CEO
Ken Stewart to catch you up on where are are and what can be expected in the
next few months.  I don't have any information other than what comes out in
these news briefs so just stay tuned for further developments.

  January 4:  From ItsYourNet CEO Ken Stewart...

  The questions are still coming in about the Wireless Internet project
and Stock in the Corporation since I released the last newsletter announcing
the orders we are under with the Quiet Time on Thursday, December 22,
2006.

  So...
  Let me say this again...
  We are under strict orders to not say anything further about the
Wireless project until authorized to do so.

  And as a result, these questions need to stop coming in to our support
channels - Thank you!

  Furthermore, with a $13-Billion investor, no Seed or Preferred Stock
needs to be offered and no other investment capital needs to be sought, so
sale of Stock is not required to raise the money needed to launch the
project.

  What you do and will receive as an Affiliate with ItsYourNet is
notification of the Stock being made available to the public before you can
learn about it going live anywhere else.

  We will let you know when the Stock is live for public purchase even
before your Broker calls you to recommend buying it, but that is all we can
do; ItsYourNet does not own the Wireless Company, and even I personally have
no way to obtain Stock before it is available publicly.


  April 26:  from ItsYourNet CEO, Ken Stewart...

  The Wireless Corporation CEO, Mr. Gary Brown, met with us here at
ItsYourNet's office last Tuesday and shared some wonderful new developments
that we've been authorized to pass on to you.

  The latest on the CPU / chip development is that there are now just
two (2) chip manufacturers remaining in the bidding process for the mass
production of the chip required to run the Wireless systems.

  Although we're not yet authorized to disclose the name of these two
manufacturers, we expect by the next Newsletter release on May 10, 2007 that
we should be able to provide a solid time-frame for the prototype chips to
be created, and, thus project a solid time-frame for the mountainous terrain
testing.

  Further developments and news Gary offered is that the Wireless
services are going to be going global much faster than originally planned!
Due to recent business connections made, shortly after the North American
Wireless service is introduced, China will be opened up

RE: [WISPA] Industry failings

2006-12-05 Thread Dustin Jurman
They absolutely will.

Being an ISP you understand build out costs, some put a lot more into a site
than others. We'd probably do things a little differently, maybe not. Here
is what I do know.

1. They spare no expense at building sites, sites are solid. We share many
sites with Fiber Tower.  Very nicely done.  
2. They seem to have very good dealings with all of the tower companies
which gets them bulk pricing, reduced costs, etc..  
3. I think if we all haven't learned the lessons from Winstar then we would
be foolish. Fiber tower does have a huge market and there is very little
competition.  
4. You know the LEC actually put someone beneath ISP's, the cell phone
carriers so when their T1 blows out at a tower, ISP's are actually serviced
before the cell carrier. 
5. The architecture is very nice, very good equipment.
6. Look how many sites they have built in a year.  It's sick...
7. We all know that once you build a site it takes some time to monetize
them, they seem a little behind but maybe not.  
8. Wall street will keep feeding them as long as they are executing, and
they are doing a good job of that.

Do you have any factual basis for those statements,

send lots of jobs and money translate in any way
to a net loss of 14.5 million in the third quarter of
2006, as opposed to a 4.9 million dollar loss in
same quarter 2005?

It is kind of scary when a company in that shape
sees their general and admin costs go up 354%
in that period, when the actual costs of providing
that service go up only around 105%.

Now, with that said, it is a good concept.  The only
issue is whether or not Wall Street will let them

 The one thing that has been the failure of SO many companies including
 NextLink, Yipes, et al - NOT ENOUGH SALES.  Folks in the greater ISP

 Building, tinkering, tweaking.  Equally, your focus has to be on sales 
 marketing.

 It's the end of another year
 (http://radinfo.blogspot.com/2006/12/eoy-part-ii.html), take time to
 make goals for the new year - and to create a sales plan for your
 company and a marketing plan.  (Even if you don't follow it, at least
 you have taken the time to think about it).

 One the biggest factors holding our industry back is a lack of success
 on the part of the big poster children. People look at the past
 failures of WinStar and Teligent and wonder if new entrants can
 succeed. Many investors are watching FiberTower and NextLink to see if
 these new poster children can prove the business model.

 It doesn't really matter that neither FiberTower or NextLink are
 representative of our industry. What matters is they are both publicly
 traded fixed wireless companies. This means that all fixed wireless
 companies are viewed through the lens of these publicly traded
 companies since they are the only ones with enough information for
 people to draw conclusions on.

 If you look at FiberTower's and NextLink's latest numbers you should
 be very worried. NextLink is failing and I predict will be out of
 business in the not too distant future. FiberTower is much better off
 than NextLink, but they are burning cash at an impressive rate. One
 can easily predict them running out of cash sometime next year if
 things follow a similar trend.

 Some of us on this list do more revenue than NextLink, but I doubt
 that will matter when they go under. Our valuations will decline in
 lock step to any failures by these two companies.

Well I guess we all learned something different from Winstar.  I can think
of a bunch of other things, I surely have never thought that a 10 year ROI
was a valuable lesson to be learned from them when they clearly made more
grave mistakes.

As far as American Tower is concerned, Fantastic! To have a tower company in
your back pocket, we'd all kill for that one. Funny thing is I haven't seen
them on very many American sites, but I have seen them on everyone else's.


Doesn't matter where I am at, I'm always looking up and counting equipment
hanging in the air. I've seen a lot of good and a lot of bad.  I also make
it a point to speak with everyone going in and out of tower sites and the
local groups that support them.  Like I said, I run into these guys quite a
bit at a lot of different sites.

Time will tell how they monetize the network. 

I'm just pointing out that a lot of folks in this industry have a very
different viewpoint on fibertower, and they can do a lot of good for
legitimizing the industry which I believe was the original intent.

 is what I do know.

   
WinStar's plan assumed a 10 year ROI on a site. In hindsight that seems 
rather foolish now, but back then they convinced people it made sense.
 2. They seem to have very good dealings with all of the tower companies
 which gets them bulk pricing, reduced costs, etc..  
   
American Tower is a major shareholder, so this should be expected.
 6. Look how many sites they have built in a year.  It's sick...
   
Look how few they have monetized. It's sick...
 7. We all know that once you build a site it takes some time to monetize
 them, they seem a little behind but maybe not.  
   
Very behind!
 8. Wall street will keep feeding them as long as they are executing, and
 they are doing a good job of that.
   
Who says they are executing? Good installs, good equipment, lots of 
sites built, and happy customers are all important things, but none of 
them mean they are executing well. They actually need to execute against 
their business plan, which includes things like cash flow and 
profitability. Both currently stink.

Subject: [WISPA] Industry failings

One the biggest factors holding our industry back is a lack of success 
on the part of the big poster children. People look at the past failures 
of WinStar and Teligent and wonder if new entrants can succeed. Many 
investors are watching FiberTower and NextLink to see if these new 
poster children can prove the business model.

It doesn't really matter that neither FiberTower or NextLink are 
representative of our industry. What matters is they are both publicly 
traded fixed wireless companies. This means that all fixed wireless 
companies are viewed through the lens of these publicly traded companies 
since they are the only ones with enough information for people to draw 
conclusions on.

If you look at FiberTower's and NextLink's latest numbers you should be 
very worried. NextLink is failing and I predict will be out of business 
in the not too distant future. FiberTower is much better off than 
NextLink, but they are burning cash at an impressive rate. One can 
easily predict them running out of cash sometime next year if things 
follow a similar trend.

Some of us on this list do more revenue than NextLink, but I doubt that 
will matter when they go under. Our valuations will decline in lock step 
to any failures by these two companies.

RE: [WISPA] Diagnosing interference

2006-10-04 Thread Dustin Jurman
Hey Marlon, Here is my anritsu list.

Love it, with all the upgrades I can't remember the cost but it was in the
same ballpark.  

1.  3.0-6 gig attachment is a little annoying because you have to take it on
and off.  
2. Battery life is Ok, like the care charger, Big brick to lug around on the
AC cord.
3. Use in sunlight is great, Buttons work really well and placed in good
position.  Don't like the interface to label saved sweeps. Kind of like
using your cell phone to txt someone.  Big pain in the ass.  
4. Resolution is really good
5. It's very flexible as far as software options. 
6. support is very good.  I had lots of questions when we got our first one.
They answered them all and did some guiding over the phone.
7. Yearly recalibration is recommended.  
8. Durable and light weight. Still need a backpact to carry all of your
antenna's around. 
9. I've seen better PC software on other units but it's not too bad. Some of
the PC based stuff seems better for generic long term stuff but not high
resolution scans.

Hiya Dustin,

I have an Advantest.  9k to 8g.  Very nice.

When I get another one I'm gonna look for a couple of things.

I like the color lcd display, but it needs to be brighter for use in the 
sun.

I'd get one that's got fewer buttons on it.  I don't need to decode cell 
phone calls.

Portable with battery backup would be cool.

I LOVE the Anritsu units that EC carries.  Too bad that the small ones need 
the frequency converters for our use.

I also need to get some more of the super flexible 10' lmr 400 type cable.

Having been in the wireless business for 30 years I've seen a bunch.  
And antennas can fail.  There are a multitude of components that can

connectors first, then active components like the radio and antennas 
last.  In the radio business everyone has a power meter to test these

I understood Charles post regarding net neutrality, that you summarized also

very clearly.
My point is that Net Neutrality conflicts with other laws and regulations as

well.
So voting for some thing for one reason, could also mean voting against it 
for another.

For a strong Net NEtrality act, you'd aahve to allow FON, but for other 
leegal matters, you'd have to deny FON.  So it becomes a compflict of which 
issue is more important to protect? Whcih has precidence?

Thats what Congress and ISPs have to decide. Its not a right ro wrong 
answer. Its what answer has more (or more important) rights than wrongs?

I think Home Land Security/Law inforcement/ Privacy advocates, and Net 
Neutrality experets really need to be ALL working on the Net neutrality 
issue together, because its all intertwined.  What I see happening is a 
bunch of conflicting regulations being passed, with out rtealizing it when

 my email client just pulled about 30 emails today on these old threads as
if

 they were new.  I'm reading along ... and this thread looks familiar ...
and

 only after sending a reply to one of them did I notice Patrick had penned 
 that mail back on May 26th.  Wierder yet is that I'd completely failed to 
 notice that the 30 or so old emails were almost all old posts from Patrick

 that were several weeks old, with a couple from Brad that were about a
week 
 old.  Don't know if the server hosting my mailbox did a drive restore that

 ressurected old mail or whether anyone else got a copies of old mail too. 
 Has this ever happened to anyone else?

 With dozens of email arrivals on the thread 3650 equipment and This is 
 HUGE! I thought that these topics had reborn again!  :-)  My mistake.

A refund or a credit?
I'm not aware of many vendors that agree to give refunds.
A sale is a sale.
Just because the cost to get it shipped is near the profit margin, and 
probably more costly to process the return than the profit on the sale in

 Marlon has been asking us for a while to give him feedback on Universal 
 Service. We have not helped him as much as we should have. He asked for 
 input from the WISPA membership originally. I am asking everyone, members 
 or not, if you can help. Marlon has been asked by a member of the House 
 Commerce Committee (One of his Reps in Washington) to help them structure 
 legislation toward the re-working on the Universal Service Program. 
 Thoughts on the Hill are now leaning toward making it available to 
 multiple operators in a market and opening it to aid in broadband as well 
 as telco.

 The feeling from most WISPs is two things to date. Most think the 
 government should make Universal Service just go away. I share some of 
 that feeling myself. What should be known though is that government rarely

 makes things go away. They usually want a role. With that said we need to 
 give them ideas on how to make this program help us in our goal to bring 
 broadband into underserved and/or unserved areas.

 To do this we need to understand what the program does, what was its 
 history, how it works and how it does not work. We need to develop a 
 strong strategy for dealing with Universal Service and offer a position 
 that legislators can feel good about and that helps show we are serious 
 about helping in legislative issues. I welcome feedback from anyone with 
 information which can help us develop this position. We need to act soon 
 as the legislature is wanting to do something now. Please help us mold our

 future through this important effort. Your thoughts and knowledge are 
 needed.

 Input from anyone with knowledge of Universal Service would be helpful at 
 this time. What we do not need is an argument that we should just tell 
 them to make it go away. We know that is what many of you want. In lieu of

 it going away we need to know how it can be made to help us.
 Thank you,

RE: [WISPA] Licensed Backhaul options

2006-03-20 Thread Dustin Jurman
Title: Message








Actually using both poles increases the
sensitivity of the radio at least by the way the Orthogon/Canopy 300s
operate when in single payload. 



The dual payload option decouples this
feature and you really have two radios sending information on the same dish,
one in H and one in V. If you look at the release notes any time the
radios are in dual payload you need more receive sensitivity then in
single payload. (makes sense right?) Only the Spectra/Canopy300s
operate in dual payload mode. 



The Gemini/Moto 60s operate in
single payload all the time giving them a very high system gain by allowing
them to combine both poles into a single signal for processing. 



So to answer your question, Yes dual pole
can combat noise by increasing system gain really just creating more C/I. A
while ago I told you that I was testing some of the new Gabriel High
Performance dishes. When I get some time I have some screen shots that Ill
post that I think youll find very interesting.

Dustin,











You have showed how using both Pols,
can reduce the sensitivity requirements of the radio, able to extend link
distance, and likely aid in NLOS(that could degrade signal) as well.





However, when Tackling noise, that
doesn't really help, does it? As the sensitivity drops, that RSSI level also
gets closer to the noise floor, in many cases cancelling out the benefit.











So my question to you is have
you seen theDual Pol config help combat the noise? Meaning... Allowing
the radio to operate closer to the noise floor at high modulations. Maybe by
rebuilding the wave by comparing them?For example, Proxim's circular pol
solution, often allows it to operate closer to the noise floor because if it.

The main difference is that the spectra

In addition, the Rx sensitivity of the
Spectra at the 300 Mb data rate (256 QAM) is -59 dB with an output power of +18
(so you'll need HUGE dishes to guarantee the link budget)











So, lets do a theoretical path

11 Ghz Licensed Link (100 Mb Full Duplex)





Rx Sensitivity: -76 dBm

4' Dish: +39 dBi

5 GHz Spectra

RE: [WISPA] BPSK QAM16 DSSS interference

2006-02-10 Thread Dustin Jurman
Tom,

There are always several ways to skin that cat! 

Well the larger antenna would certainly allow you to decrease your back lobe
and increase power and the size of your ear.  

If the problem is interference at your site, a lot of this is going to
depend on how your site is built, length of the face of the tower, and
direction of all of your equipment.  

While I haven't done any current work with the 2 foot Gabriel professional
series I've been hearing enough good stuff about it that I ordered one to
play with and see if it worth deploying. 

What I like to do in situations like this is break out the Anritsu spectrum
analyzer and spend some time documenting the site.  Knowing the ambient
noise floor at the site is important before putting any additional equipment
up as it's likely to interfere with other equipment.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] BPSK QAM16 DSSS interference

Thanks, Charles and Dustin,

The challenge I'm working on is to determine if the degregation of my test 
link, is caused by

A) Distortion on the transmitter, at full power? or
B) Overload or lack of acuracy of the receiver. or
C) Or Just plain interference creeping in. (tested at about -80db)
note: multipath unlikely, as LOS link, 10 miles, parabolic antenna, o wall 
behind antennas, 100ft above other buildings.

In my Trango test case, w/ 2ft antennas, QAM16, at -55 db I got worse signal

Quality quality (packet loss) than at -65db. To me that would infer case A 
or B was happening.

What was interesting, is my Mikrotik test link w/ range5s, actually got peak

rssi (full power) of -47db apposed to Altas's peak signal of -55.
(note: path analisys calculated -55 db appropriate, so not a negative for 
the Trango, but a Plus for the Range 5, exceeding expectations).

With the Mikrotik, the higher the rssi radio power, the better the speed 
results, and lower the packet loss. So Mikrotik did not seem to be plagued 
with the same delimna. However, at a surprise, the Mikrotik performed at a 
slower speed, and had more packet loss, in its best link configuration, than

Trango had.  So the Trango at -65db QAM16, outperformed the Mikrotik 
at -47db.

I attribute those results partially, to how the radios deal with 
interference. One side of the link (AP/MU) had significant noise, causing 
the Mikrotik to lower modulation more frequently.  I proved this, by 
repeating speed tests with Trango using 5.3Ghz, which performed perfect 
links (no loss). However, the 10-11 miles was pushing the maxrange of 5.3, 
and I felt 5.3 was to risky, based on that. I actually had to turnup the 
Power a little over the legal limit to get the perfect link, but still lower

rssi than the 5.8G link.  But my point was, when noise wasn't there, the 
links worked much better.

So the decission I am trying to decide on is,
a) increase the gain (dbi) of the antennas and lower the gain (dbm) of the 
radio, to improve the link.
For example, upgrade from 2 ft dished to 3 or 4 ft dished.  or

b) get a better 2 ft antenna with more isolation.
For example, upgrade Gabriel cheap 2 ft para to the high performance 2 ft 
Gabriel Drum style antennas?

Either one could have a possitive effect. Its likely that my noise is 
comming from my colocated antennas at the same site. The Drum style antenna 
will likely have much better isolation comming from the sides.  Better F/B 
ratio is not jsut about an antenna behind me, but also beside me, and 
interference is not always cured by lowering the beamwidth, if the 
interference is comming from the side. So better isolation antenna could be 
the choice.

However, if the packet loss was from self generated noise, larger antenna 
would keep my gain up, even after lowering power. However, I actually would 
still have a gain improvement, because the antenna increases gain in both 
directions, where as lowering he TX power only does it in one direction. 
Because most of my interference is at the AP/MU side my paln was possibly 
to

Increase the antenna at the RU/Client, to a 3-4 ft dish. If packet loss 
at -55db was due to transmitting to high power, and loss was at MU/AP then 
it would be most importantto lower transmit power at the RU/Client side. 
Increasing dish size at RU would help this.

Then on the MU/AP side, I would add the high performance 2ft antenna, with 
better isolation, taking that most of teh interference may be colocation 
interference. Increasing the antenna size may not block interference comming

from the side.

But then again, if interference comming from the front (I have another site 
20 deg off to the left), its possible the larger dish and narrower beam may 
in fact also help isolate interference.

Now to make it complicated, what if the cause is not interference at the 
radio receivers? But instead its all the RF in between

If the spectrum analyzer is left in place for a period of time and setup
with peak hold you will quickly find that radio that is used at the end of
the day. It still speaks, handshakes and more. 

Just setting up big shots and blowing people out is bad business for
everyone. If the customer wants a quality shot then there should be no
problem doing a spectrum analysis, freq decision and installation shortly
after.

AUGH!


This whole thread..

Some have touched on pieces of it but how about this summary..

The Redline is a two piece radio.  It does not send 5 Ghz up the cable. 
It sends an IF frequency which is lower and more forgiving as well as 
power to operate the outdoor unit. The Redline as pointed out does not 
have a spectrum analyzer (in the versions I have worked with).  As such 
they probably just checked for RSL on any or all channels.  This is not 
a spectrum analysis by any means. The Redline equipment is great 
equipment but it is not a spectrum analyzer.

A spectrum analysis is flawed in almost any case really because it is 
only good at the time of the testing and along the path of the test. You 
really will only see stronger signals with an omni. But you can still 
have your signal killed if someone is using directional antennas and 
looking down your path. There is a big difference from 8 dB to 29 dB.

The other case is a 5 Ghz. system in place that only is used at the end 
of the day or does dumps' at certain times.  Unlike a full duplex radio 
like a Proxim Tsunami that is talking all the time regardless of the 
received signal, you may only see a signal when the associated equipment 
is passing data. 

In my book you can't do reliable spectrum analysis with any radio or 
assocaited radio card. Yes, there are systems out there that work really 
well but I would not be willing to bet my reputation on most.  Will they 
get you by in most cases???  Sure.  
But...

To answer your question..Yes, the spectrum analysis was flawed.

Personally...we never do spectrum analysis.  It causes more headaches 
than what it is worth IMHO.  Is it great for finding interference??  Sure.

I have installed links in lower Manhattan (nearly 70 to date on 
unlicensed 5 Ghz), Washington DC and Boston without ever needing a 
spectrum analysis. All these locations are RF hotbeds.

A few things to consider. Use a radio with a very good C/I value. Use 2' 
or larger antennas to keep the beamwidth tight. Use radios that are 
capable of 5 or 10 Mhz. channels.  Use radios with high RF power output. 
If you need to run transmission line to the radio, use the right stuff 
for the job. LMR400 and 5 Ghz. are not my considered options unless the 
cable length is less than 24.  We use LMR600 up to 100' and 5/8 heliax 
after that. make sure the radio has a good receiver threshold. Wherever 
possible we use 5.3 Ghz.

Last and not least consider your neighbors. If there is only one tall 
building in town and everyone is on it use 5 Ghz. you are probably in 
for some challenges. But if you do a spectrum analysis, find a clear 
channel, build on it and then smile and walk away only to have one of 
the existing operators change channels and rain on your parade.

Its a game of chance but with the proper engineering you can move the 
odds more in your favor.

Good Luck!

Takes no more than a few minutes to perform a peak hold Bob,  maybe you
should get one and play with it a bit.  It's a very powerful tool and I
think your opinion will change.   

I agree that we have two different schools of thought. 
1. Plan the play, play the plan.
2. Show up for the game.

Cliff was doing the right thing by doing a spectrum analysis, esp knowing
that he was going to go trough some existing equipment.  Anything short of
that would be irresponsible.  I would say to Cliff that if they cannot
produce results from the analyzer, graphs and charts than it's worthless and
done improperly,  just because you have an analyzer doesn't mean you know
how to use it.  

If it's helpful I will post some shots to a website if Cliff thinks that it
is helpful.

I am not saying to blow people out of the water with power. I am saying 
to make sure you have ample power and gain to supply a solid signal. 
Running at -78 on a link is not a solid signal in my mind.  We only use 
equipment where we can control the power. We don't run full bore unlike 
alot of WISP operators. We don't plug radios like Motorola Canopy units 
into omni's. And my opinion is if I blow that guy off the air, so be 
it.  It was not properly engineered to begin with. It was finacially 
engineered to get by cheap.



If the customer wants a quality shot then there should be no

But the point is moot if Johnny O comes along on your channel tomorrow 
and blows you off the air (I am only using him as an example).  Then the 
customer is all pissy because he spent money for spectrum analysis that 
was totally moot.

I agree it's only good for a certain amount of time, but if the customer

I don't think a properly engineered link is chance luck. We don't just 
pick a channel out of thin air and go with it. Alot of engineering goes 
into it. Spectrum analysis is just not a factor 99.999 percent of the time.

RE: [WISPA] BPSK QAM16 DSSS interference

2006-02-08 Thread dustin jurman
Tom,

DSSS modulation is a single-carrier modulation scheme, BPSK operates much in
the same way as DSSS which usually are much more robust then other forms of
modulation because they seem to run like a single carrier modulation
schema's. 

The neat thing about BPSK is its ability to take interference and still run
because it sends multiple bits of the same data and then aggregates it into
a single bit so it's not an all or nothing but more of a something.

As you start to walk up the modulation line you definitely need more C/I,
but you also start to loose the ability to use full power out of the radio.
As you turn the power up on the radio, the more distortion you get so you
can't achieve full modulation at full power where as you can run BPSK at
full power.  So dish size and quality becomes more important than radio
power when you are gunning for full modulation.

Subject: [WISPA] BPSK QAM16 DSSS interference

I have a problem where BPSK modulation has packet loss due to interference
greater than QAM16 at good RSSI levels.

I am using tons of DSSS all around the troubled OFDM link. (16 PtMP links
totalled from two cells, 2 miles apart). And my DSSS links most likely are
the culprits causing some self interference with the OFDM PtP link. So is
there anything about BPSK modulation that would make it more prone to
interferrence from DSSS radios apposed to QAM16?

RSSI at -65 when this occured most obviously.

QPSK had similar characteristic/loss as BPSK, when comparing to QAM16.

At -55 QAM modulations got worse/unusable, possibly because overloaded by
self noise.
At -75 QAM modulations got worse/unusable, possibly because to close to
noise floor (-80).
Testing at -65 was the sweet spot that QAM worked well, much better than
BPSK and QPSK.
QOS loss was relatively consistent for BPSK/QPSK at -55,-65, rssi, with a
little more degregation at -75 for QPSK as getting close to noise.

Note: 10 mile link. Rssi adjustments accomplished by reducing radio TX power
on both ends, Antenna type remained constant.  For the purpose of this
discussion, I'm looking for theory pertaining to all radios, not a specific
brand.

 What are the advantages of using
 both polarities for the same signal in a good LOS environment?

There isn't.
But having one on standby means, that when someone deploys on that
channel/pol, in seconds you can switch polarities, to get past it.
Broadcasting on DualPols, does have benefits in NLOS environments.  However,
the antenna design is more critical for transmitting on both at the same
time.  Often the Dual Pol antenna is used to create Circular polarity, such
as the higher end Proxim Dual Pol gear.  Or Orthogon that may compare

 I'm not saying there isn;t a benefit now and then sharing a Dual pol 
 antenna

 between two freqs, otherwise nobody would make them. BUt

 We have found most tower agreements also, have restrictions in the 
 agreement

 that disallow using multiple radios our spectrum ranges on the 
 antennas without paying for that as a second antenna, even though 
 taking up only one antenna position.

 We found that its just as easy to sneak/put up a second antenna, 
 without managers knowledge as it is to put up a dual freq antenna 
 without them knowing.  So normally you gotta pay regardless, if you do 
 it honestly. It becomes an issue of wether you are honest about what you
put up, versus
 sneaking up extra options without paying.   Wether its spectrum or 
 antennas
 is irrelevant.  Most tower owners don't audit their sides regularly 
 because its jsut to expensive and even if they do, the auditors often 
 are over worked, and don't always check thouroughly what they are 
 required to supposed to check.  Most colocators also aren't short on 
 antenna space, so they are really charging you based on the value you 
 are receiving being there, not really the actually antenna space. 
 Although special cases do apply such as with windload requirement of 
 over weighted towers or towers like clock tower that have a limited 
 number of window openings for the antennas.

 I also find saving money isn't that much of a savings because the 
 antenna makers then also charge more for the dual pol antennas to 
 counter most of your planned savings.

 However, saving on time, clearly is an option, with only one antenna 
 to carry and bolt up.  However you may run into issues, where the 
 alignment of the antennas may need to be varied to get optimal signal 
 based on wether you

 are aligning for 5.8 or 2.4. So because we like to engineer for 
 OPTIMAL signal, apposed to compromised mostly best signal, we prefer 
 to use seperate

 antennas.

 As a disclaimer: We pay for all our colocated antennas at our cell 
 sites, and we do that because we honor our tower relationships, and 
 have negotiated

 good terms, and do not want to abuse the trust they have in us, so we 
 maintain good relations.  I mention sneaking up antennas only because, 
 every

 once in a while, we may have sneaked up an antenna to do the inital 
 testing (which often requires it left there for a few days), so that 
 we can avoid the lengthly antenna request process and timely paper 
 work until after we are certain that the link is doable and tested.  
 We justify sneaking the antenna up, because not only are we saving us 
 time, we also are saving the management a lot of time, preventing the 
 need to do paperwork unnecessarilly, if we are unsuccessful in pulling 
 off the link we
 engineered.   I do not advise attempting to pull one over on Management
 companies. If the Management company does not care what spectrum gets 
 used, and charging just for the antenna space, the more power to you 
 for being smarter.

It's disturbing that you take offense when someone makes a profit  for 
building a better product

You have misunderstood. No offense was taken.  My point was that just
because it has a higher price tag does not make it a better antenna.  Many
people assume a name brand means better, which rarely is the case, it just
means they spend more money on marketing.  Also, I just questioned, what
value should be given to a product of a higher price. If I pay twice the
price, do I get twice the benefit from the product? In andrews case, a
better mount does not add value for me, as the competitor mount is already
good enough.  Travis, Posted an interesting point about the Drum design
antenna, that added a much ,arger value for him, getting rid of truck rolls
to the top of the mountain every time it snows daily.  I'd pay an extra $300
for that benefit any day of the week.

I don't mind paying more for value. I just expect to understand clearly what
that value is, and I need that value to be proven.

There may be many on this list including myself, that may not totally
understand all the factors to consider in an antenna.
With Dual Pol 900 Tilteks, I learned the value, and have no hesitance to pay
the price.

We've discussed many reasons, why one antenna could be better than another,
however, not all the antennas we have discussed as a overly priced antenna
possessesthose higher quality traits.

I've considered using Andrews, because the extra, 2 db gain, but I wanted to
know that was infact the case. Manufacturers often do exadurate their spec
sheets. You never know.

 go hand in hand but don't take my word on it, This is an excellent project

 on
 some 3 foot dishes.  (Ok they are 20 feet apart! But horizontal not
 vertical).  But Spectra/Moto300's are super sensitive so they hear a lot
 more than the standard 802.11a radio.

 You really can see dish quality with the Orthogon/moto radio's because 
 they
 give you so much information on how the signal is received over a generic
 RSSI or DBM level.  Charles are you listening?  A lot of value can be 
 taken
 from this rant.

 Lastly since you are really broaching a few different subjects, if you 
 want

You cannot forget that there are big differences in quality, it's not just
the dish but the mount as well.  As we utilize almost everything that you

Subject: Re: [WISPA] 3 ft Dual Pol antennas

I actually got clarification on the Pacwireless solutions yesterday.
2 ft feeds do not work for 3 ft dishes, different lengths.
The PacWireless is a dual pol feed on a 3 ft dish, but only has the gain of
less than a 2 ft dish.
The purpose of upgrading from a two foot to three foot was to increase gain
not decrease it.
So PacWirelesslesses Dual Pol dish today, is a useless product. I was told,
its in engineering now for a redesign.

Gabrial 2ft dual pol- 28.9 dbi   ($350) - best value to day.
Radiowaves or Andrews 3ft dual pol- 32 dbi ($1024) - desperate to get 3 more
db.
Gabriel 4 ft Dual Pol -34.5 db ($1000.)
Pacwireless 2ft single pol - 29 dbi ($180) Pacwireless 3 ft single pol- 32
dbi ($250) - Very cost effective Option, if you can live with Single Pol.
Pacwireless Dual Pol (3 ft)- 27 dbi. ($450) - worthless.

There is a clear gap in our options for 3 ft dual pol, and good value.

Four feet dishes are a big pain, won't fit through some hallways and most
roof hatches. And the windload is atrocious, when trying to mount it.

Three feet dishes are MUCH easier to work with, half the windloading, are
safe to install on existing wall mounted masts of slightly smaller diameter
(2.5) left from Teligent and simliar companies.  But yet maximizes the
available DB able to get from an antenna for a link.

I'd really like to see a 3 ft Dual pol option under $600, at some point. 
What really is Dish antenna anyway? More or less just a large trash can lid!

How much can it really cost? Its not that difficult. I'd like to see
PacWireless finish the job, and redesign that feed to get the 32 dbi that it
should be able to get.  Or Gabriel to fill in the hole. What I'd really like
to see is Maxrad make a Dual pol version of their 3 ft dish. There 3 foot
single pol dish was the best we have ever tested from a gain point of view,
really sweat.  It out performed all the 4 fts from competitors. Its around
$450 but its only single pol now :-(

 The street price I have found on 3 ft Dual pol 5.2-58Ghz parabolic

 have been around 

 $1045 for Andrews, and $1025 for Radiowaves.

 Any vendors on list in a possition to do better than that? If so, contact

 off list.

 I find it odd, that there is such a large gap between 2 feet and 3 feet.
 2 feet Dual pol gabriels are runing around $350.  It would be nice if
 someone came up with something half way in between for 3 ft dual pol.

Not all OFDM radios are created equally (especially PTMP). In many areas of
NorthEast USA we have 1 mile radius's with eave mounted BreezeAccess VL
Subscribers (5.8 Ghz) doing mod 6 which reflects a 10 meg true data rate.
Typically these are obstructed NLOS links instead of going thru 1 mile of
solid treelines. Rain/Ice does occasionally change mod levels but more than
adequate data rates are achieved with this model. I have 2,400 subscribers
(and growing) deployed in this fashion with one customer. Brad

My practical tests show that 2.4GHz works better in a rural Near LosS

I have had no luck with 5.3/5.8GHz in a rural Near/Non LoS environment.  On
the other hand, 5.8Ghz seems to be fine at range in LoS conditions.

Go figure.

Paul,

5 GHz works NLOS in an urban environment.  Bouncing around buildings, etc.
Look at the success of Redline and Orthogon.  OFDM and 5 GHz works well 
for them.  An environment with trees is different.  Trees absorb the 
signals, instead of bouncing them.  Especially wet trees!

We utilize 2.4 at every pop, mainly because of the low cost for 
deployment, and general coverage.  We utilize 5 GHz frequently and also 
900 MHz for
NLOS
issues.


I hope this helps

Mike

Ola everybody,

   I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year and are all ready

for 2006, the year of the WISP :)
   When I have setup wireless in an area it has always depended on the 
Geographic's of the area as to if we deploy 2.4GHz or 5GHz and I have
always
decided that 2.4 should be used where NLOS could be an issue. This 
decision has always been based on the fact that the lower frequency 
will pass
through
trees a lot easier however I have recently read a white paper that 
suggests otherwise. Basically the document says that the higher the 
frequency, the better the scatter (the ability to bounce of and around 
objects). It also says that 5GHz is better at penetrating walls.
   So my question is, have I been basing some of our deployments on
false 
information or am I missing something here? I know that in tests I have 
seen a more stable signal at 2.4GHz in a NLOS environment but is this 
just a fluke?

Cheers,

P.

You guys haven't been going to enough conferences and listening to very

industry. Shame on that Michael Anderson for putting Kris up in front of an
audience to try to keep the WISP industry informed.
/snip

Thought I'd chime in and add my 2 cents

One thing that this WISP / ISP / Operator community lacks is a cohesive and
constant voice for wireless in DC (WISPA has done a great job, but guys like
Marlon, Rich, Jon and co still have day jobs and families to feed, and we
can't rely solely on their volunteer efforts)

I would like to take this opportunity to intrtoduce everyone to Michael
Hazzard, of Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge  Rice (WCSR).  WCSR has been quite
active in the CLEC / UNE-P / Forebearance battles, and although the outcome
of those battles may be a foregone conclusion by now, they are interested in
helping on the final front for independents (e.g., broadband wireless).
That said, we plan on collaborating together the next several months amongst
all affected communities (in this case, WISPs/ISPs are one organization we
are interested in working with, but we also plan on working with other types
of network operators, including CLECs, Rural Independents, Electrical Coops,
Munis, etc) to put together a unified cohesive position on wireless
broadband

We are currently working on some survey questions, and will probably be
contacting everyone shortly to ask some of these questions (so please don't
blacklist me =)

RE: [WISPA] verizon fios pricing - Triple Play

Well Tom, it sounds like you should focus on business customers or lower
your residential prices so there is no savings when the cable company comes
after your customers. You would have to apply your reduced rates across the
board to your residential customers. Coming back to a customer after the
fact is a tough proposition, I don't believe single bill is so much of an
issue for you as trying to save a customer in the 4th quarter when your down
by a few Touchdowns.

One bill has a bigger impact than people think. In our residential MTUs,
I've lost 30% of our MTU subscribers to triple play providers. The
residenmtial client base has very little loyalty over a 5 dollars savings. I
get the cancellation request AFTER they have transferred to their new
service.  A common response is, we loved your service and support, and the
Cable companies was horrible through the hole process, but they won my
business with a price I could not turn down. Learning after the fact of
their intent to cancel and that they were not aware that I also offered a
Double play that could offer near the same value proposition.  I then try to
get them to switch back, as its no more of a hassle to cancel the service
they just installed than mine. I then offer them a better price than the
cable company does for the bundled services. Customer then responds, but
the Cable company will let me have all the services on one bill, and it
just makes it easy.  So my conclusion is they ahve a much higher value for
their time than they do for mine. They'll give up my high quality support to
save $5, but they won't take the time to write two checks and seal two
envelopes, to save the $5 that I offer them.

My point is consumers have a short memory, little loyalty, and modivated by
saving money.  In order to keep residential business, it does need
consistent marketing to remind them you are there, and the services you
offer. What we learned the hard way is that we can't be just a broadband
provider, we also need to offer the other services, or our clients are
talking to our competitors for the other services that we don't offer,
attempting to steer them from using us for our core services also, without
me knowing it is even happening.  We can be competitive and compete on
price, when we know that we need to. If we play in the residential markets,
we are all going to have to offer double or triple play.  I don't want to be
a TV provider or a Phone company, But I don't have a choice. The market is
making me change my business model.  I either join the current trends, or I
lose clients.  The question is does an ISP only want to have the opportunity
to serve the underserved? I can keep customers with no other options all day
long, but thats a cowardly way to go about a business. I want to be able to
compete in served markets. I don't need to win everyones business, and I
don't need majority market share, I'm satisfied with my 1%. But I need to be
able to offer enough value to enough people to justify that percentage of
the population to chose me over the competition and choices they have.  If
that can be done, my company has value, and survivabilty regardless of what
competition comes to town.

Top 5 reasons why legacy navini sucks

1.SCDMA phy/mac increases latency to low of 80msec peak 280msec and avg of
100msec with 14-25% jitter.
 ( in english, the latency sucks arse )

2. only truely makes sense for sub 2 mile cell NLOS deployment with
BRS/MDS/ITFS Licensed spectrum. ( 2.5 ) licensed- reason being is that the
average recieve sensitivity that it will work in a nlos cell is -105 dbm. in
a 2.4 enviorment, the average noise floor is at least -95dbm = wont work
50-60% of the time.

3. even if they dropped the price to 10k a sector, its still a rediculous
price for a product that doesnt offer any QOS ( and cant offer qos ) to
deliver a residential service

4. Their zero truck roll model usually only applies to 60% of customer
deployments which = not a zero truck roll model

5. blatent marketing lies = unhappy customers

 Post Katrina: Mississippi Gets Wireless Broadband
 
 BellSouth has begun deploying high-speed wireless broadband speeds as 
 fast as 1.5 Gb/s in Gulfport and Biloxi, Miss., modifying the 
 company's original wireless broadband rollout plans in order to get 
 service to residents of the hurricane-ravaged area, where the 
 infrastructure damage is so huge it hasn't been fixed yet.
 
 The incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC), whose original rollout 
 plans envisioned only offering wide-area wireless broadband in rural 
 areas, is also offering residents of the Mississippi towns a bit of a 
 discount out of sympathy for their plight - and, of course, the good 
 publicity it might get out of the move.
 
 Small businesses and homeowners are still rebuilding, and they are 
 looking to BellSouth to provide the critical communications they need 
 to get their lives in order, says John McCullouch, president of 
 BellSouth's Mississippi operations. Our wireless broadband service 
 will provide customers with a viable and economical solution for 
 high-speed Internet access.
 
 A BellSouth spokeswoman added that, after blanketing the hurricane-hit 
 cities, the carrier will now return to our original strategy of 
 (offering wireless broadband in) areas from suburbia on out, where 
 such services as DSL can't be delivered economically.
 
 About a month ago, BellSouth began offering a high-speed wireless 
 service in downtown New Orleans, but that was priced as a 
 small-business service only.
 It was absolutely critical to getting the city up and running, the 
 BellSouth spokeswoman explained, regarding the decision not to offer a 
 residential plan.
 
 One thing BellSouth is not offering the Mississippi residents, 
 however, is voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) on its shiny, new, 
 wireless broadband.
 The company had no explanation of why, other than the simple fact that 
 it's not going to offer it for now. For more on BellSouth's wireless 
 rollout progress in the Gulf area, read the current issue of Broadband 
 Business Forecast. For a trial subscription, go to

I have found myself in need of some devices from time to time that I can't 
seem to buy at a reasonable price. 

Since I was laid up for a month and more, I began doing some research on 
developing things I needed. Before I go into a bunch of work to try 
to finalize these... I'd like to know if anyone else is interested...

1. IP addressable, 10/100 ethernet based voltage / charge / 
temperature / monitoring and/or switching device.You 
couldmonitorbatteries, solar panels, generator, start/stop things, 
etc. Cost: ~$200

2. IP addressable, 10/100 ethernet based thermo-electric generator, 
fueled by propane, either remotely controlled, or operating on a programmable 
basis -to operate as a backup power supply in conjunction with 12 or 24V 
battery based DC systems. Would provide battery monitoring, as 
well.
Approximate cost: $2500 for a 75 watt 24V system. Could 
be made in 20, 50, 100, or larger wattage sizes - cost rises considerable with 
power output. This would serve as backup for a solar/wind or 
even for AC in conjunction with lead-acid batteries.

3. "crash detect and reboot" system. This would 
connect via 10/100M ethernet to a network, ping a programmable IP (in fact, 
several of them) and be able to power cycle dc or ac powered 
equipment. Programmable as to how many pings to miss, how long to 
power down, etc. Cost: ~$200. 

Each of these devices would be designed to operate on very minimal power 
and tolerate temperature extremes.

 True, if there's no web or email services, then having DNS doesn't do much

 for you.
 nice to spool up email someplace else, if your network is toasted - like a

 hurricane.

 once all our network are interconnected with 100 mbit pipes, we can worry 
 about backing each other up. :-)
 in the mean time, there are commercial solutions...

 Two things.  I figure if both dns servers are at the same place and both 
 go down then probably I've got other problems that will take it all down 
 anyhow.

 Secondly, I've just split my network in two.  So I do have geographic and

 provider redundancy.

 In the old days... :-) 1988-93 my nameserver handed some secondary

 How is everyone dealing with the general good practice of dual DNS 
 geographically seperated?

Hi All,

I'm setting up some FCC meetings for late Oct. or early Nov.  I need 5
people to go.

I'm looking mainly for folks that haven't been there before.  We'll get
together after the team is picked and talk about what we'd like to talk
about.

A few things I think should be on that list:
Who the customers are.
Why they use wisps vs. other services.
Examples of wisps servicing areas that have no other services.
Examples of emergency response (I'd like to get Mac there for this one).
What we need in order to be able to do a better job (clean spectrum, more
power in some bands, outdoor only bands etc.).

You'll need to dress up (I know at least a few of you have still got your
Sunday best :-) and pay your own way.

If anyone is interested in this please let me know so I can get a group
together and finalize the plans.

laters,

I would think the seat strap takes pressure off the leg straps.  I'm
thinking the leg straps is what cuts off the circulation.  Is this thinking
correct?

Also, I printed the article and will deliver it to the fire chief here so he

 I had my guy read this link.

 One thing to note, is that the harness with the seat, is not really a 
 seat that you sit in and dangle your feet.
 It just adds added comfort.

 I think that was an important article for everyone to read.

 I mean who knew that this was something that happens.

 Surprised.

I know exactly how you feel. I can tell you that my

what you are up against. If anyone can do it Orthogon can but if your just 
being silly then that is another story.

Hello,

I am very much considering considering purchasing a 
Orthogon Gemeni lite system. I just wanted to ask if anyone else out there is 
using these systems currently in nlos applications and if so how well does it 
really work? 9 grand to find out is a rather expensive experiment. They claim 
you can make links where you would think it is impossible. However what they 
claim and what is true could very well be different as it is in so many other 
things in life. Any input would be much appreciated.
