Actually, getthing the license is real easy.   Finding your way through the 
FCC's web mess, that's a different story.

however, when you go to register your location, that's when it gets harder. 
They use terminology and expect stuff we've never even heard of.

 of that vacation you paid my way for me to come down to from Ohio JhonnyO,

 the use of self adhesive Velcro to hold routerboards to enclosures.

 We are installing a new tower very soon (in the next couple weeks) that
 will be run completely off Wind power with a 400-watt wind turbine. Of
 course we will have 6 105 amp hour batteries. Our draw at one of our
 popular sites is under 375 watts. This using a PC-Based MikroTik/ HP
 Procurve 2524, 6 Alvarion B NET Backhauls, 2 Alvarion VL-AU's, 1 Trango
 900 Sector.

 We switched some hardware in the MikroTik routers mostly the newer low
 powered AMD cpu's and that made a hugh difference and going from the HP
 procurve 2424m to a 2524 which cut the wattage from 90 watts to about 25
 watts. The Alvarion Units use about 200 watts total and the trango is like
 13 watts or so, (been a while since I checked them). The mikrotik router
 is uing 60-75 watts. All in all, not to shabby as far as power
 consumption.

 -Cameron

 I wanted to get input from the WISPA list about a complete design for a
 off
 grid base station design base on a dual and quad radio system. We have
 been
 looking into this and have come up with a design using both wind and 
 solar
 power that will keep a unit up and running 24/7/365. The idea is to have 
 a
 complete package design so the base stations can be installed anywhere,
 but
 in order to keep the costs low it would be base on a max 48Watt design.

 Questions:
 1. Is this something WISP would want in the USA, and would find useful?
 2. Would you like this in a single package or parts (where a package 
 would
 have a 1 year warrantee and parts would not)
 3. What are you finding the power needs are at a typical WPOP?
 4. Other Comments?

Re: [WISPA] Off Grid System Design Comments.

2008-03-17 Thread JohnnyO
If you're going to have 6 105AH batteries in parallell... you'll have 630AH 
available amps at 12V

If your wind generator is putting out it's maximum... Sounds like an Air 
X. You'll see a continous fluctuation from 225watts - 325watts maxium 
and it'll be all over the place ALL of the time.

Let's say your wind generator provides 300watts x 24 hours @ 12volts... 
You'll have from your wind generator ( 600AH) available for power.

Let's say your setup will use 350 watts x 24 hours @ 12 volts - Your 
equipment will need (700AH) in a 24 hour period.

This is only to say that everything is 100% efficient which never is, but 
you're automatically going to be short 100AH right off the bat... Not 
including days or hours your wind generator will be working at 20% capacity 
or it's internal safety shutting it down b/c of excessive winds.

You will need 1 wind generator... mounted about 20ft above the tree line 
 you will need to atleast triple your batteries and add either (1) more 
wind generator or (2) solar panels... My advice is to go with (2) solar 
panels and a very efficient charge controller.

Set it up for battery banks of 24 volts and power your equipment directly 
from the battery banks, don't use an inverter b/c you lose 15% right off the 
bat in the conversion.

Hope this helps.

JohnnyO

 We are installing a new tower very soon (in the next couple weeks) that

 course we will have 6 105 amp hour batteries. Our draw at one of our
 popular sites is under 375 watts. This using a PC-Based MikroTik/ HP
 Procurve 2524, 6 Alvarion B NET Backhauls, 2 Alvarion VL-AU's, 1 Trango

 We switched some hardware in the MikroTik routers mostly the newer low
 powered AMD cpu's and that made a hugh difference and going from the HP
 procurve 2424m to a 2524 which cut the wattage from 90 watts to about 25
 watts. The Alvarion Units use about 200 watts total and the trango is
 like
 13 watts or so, (been a while since I checked them). The mikrotik router

Even at 100watts - you are seriously under-powered. Figure up how much power 
you need... and multiply that by a factor of 3.5 and you'll be safe and 
it'll be enjoyable to have a site off-grid.. Do it like you're planning 
and it's going to become a nitemare and the fuel you burn will have paid for 
the extra gear :)

Travis - the startup speed of these Air-X generators is around 10mph... that 
doesn't mean it starts generating power at 10mph - it just means it starts 
turning.

They did just release some consumer 1000watt wind generators that have a 
start-up speed around 7mph - they are much more efficient and their power curve 
is a LOT higher at lower RPMs.

  I agree. Wind turbines really only produce about 50% of what they claim (even 
at full wind speed). You will need 4 or 6 of that size wind turbine to keep 
things running.

  We had a site that was on a 9500ft mountaintop that showed a 15mph wind 
average (over the entire year). We put up two 400 watt turbines and had 10 or 
12 batteries (100ah). We only  had 5 radios total (trango) and a small 5 port 
12v switch. The site would stay up for about 3-4 days before we had to go start 
the generator. I think our total draw was under 80 watts for everything.

  You need to take a look at the Bergey wind turbines. They are expensive, but 
they work really well. However, you can NOT mount them on the top of a Rohn 
type tower... their mounting pipe has to be exact, and if it's off by even 
1/8, the whole thing will eventually vibrate itself apart. Spend the extra 
$500 and buy their recommended mounting tower system.

 and you shouldn't have someone that isn't experienced with putting up
 200ft towers on the job-site

 Typical pricing for a tower installation of ANY height is $60-$90 per

 That does not include foundation costs That includes the tower crew
 showing up and installing the tower.

 $500 rebar

Mike - what city are you installing this in ? Let me know - we're in the 
area, I'll check on crane pricing and see what we could do for you.

As Bob stated, make sure whoever it is has the proper insurance. Any

Re: [WISPA] tower install

2008-03-13 Thread JohnnyO
Kurt - you got off WAY CHEAP.. The company asking is buying new steel 
and you shouldn't have someone that isn't experienced with putting up 
200ft towers on the job-site

Typical pricing for a tower installation of ANY height is $60-$90 per foot. 
That does not include foundation costs That includes the tower crew 
showing up and installing the tower.

If anyone out there is able to get the brother-in-law deals you got... More 
power to them.

 Is it me or does this price sound way to high? We did a 130' self 
 supporter
 (Rohn SSV) and our pricing was as follows:

 $2500 used tower
 $1300 contractor (backhoe and dug foundation)
 $500 rebar
 $1000 concreate
 $300 base bolt kit
 6 months free internet to crane owner

 We own our own skid loader and had a flatbed semi available.

 Total cost was around $6000 including the tower but I did some of the work
 myself.

 We are installing a tower (super titian sc 100 200 foot) in east Texas.
 We
 have got a bunch of quotes from different companies. We have received
 between $12,000-$24,000 for complete installation. Is that a normal
 amount?

 HAHAHA thanks for the offer Bob. The crew I am leaning toward is a very
 respected group as I do my research. They will be using a gin pole and
 winch. That is also good to know for the $60-90 per foot. I knew it was
 around a buck a foot for climbers but didn’t know about construction. We 
 had
 done a ton of small 25g towers but we are hiring this out for liability 
 and
 solid professionalism. We thought we would have to pay for it but didn’t
 think there would be a 10k difference in professionals.

 Mike,

 Really depends on your foundation and crane availability where you
 live.  If there are no cranes available you will pay more for a crew
 with a winch and gin pole. 200' is a safe price for $12-15K.  Foundation
 depends on type of soil, rock, etc.  Also accessibility to the area
 being developed.

 Make sure whoever you get has insurance and provides you and the
 property owner with a certificate naming each of you as additional 
 insureds.

 BTW:   If you can't get anyone I'll mobilize a crew to come out and do
 it TOMORROW for the $24,000!   :-)

 I think you can do better.

 Good Luck

 Bob

Ron - not meaning to pick on you but what you said made me laugh 
FYI - I run some Canopy gear also but the following.At the very 
least cable between the

sync ports and set one to generate sync, this will help you but not any
other Canopy WISP's in the area.


hehehe - since when have any of us that run Canopy worried about any other 
WISPs in any area to begin with ! ?

Why not go ahead and sync them? With a SyncPipe from Forest or a CTM from

Hi,

Has anyone successfully co-located two non-sync'ing AP's on the same
tower using the same channel and polarity, but pointed in opposite
directions? I would be using shielding and 15-20ft of vertical
seperation. 60 degree internal antennas.

Ralph - you need to just learn how to keep your mouth shut sometimes. I 
don't care if I get banned or not, but your posts and tone towards others on 
this list has become absolutely annoying. You are responsible for many on 
this list not posting at all anymore. I don't know who the hell you THINK 
you are but what have YOU done for this industry ? What have you done for 
WISPA ? What have you done for this public list other then make it a less 
enjoyable place for others since you been around ?


It's easy for someon to come on here and blab their mouth and make the 
arrogant/obnoxious comments as you do at times when they don't do CRAP for 
this organization or this industry. You are one of those that is out for 
yourself. Your posts are meaningless to me at this point and I am not the 
only one who has this opinion.


I don't appreciate how you bash others with your petty posts about 
compliance or non-compliance, like you are 1 step above the ones that are 
either half way compliant or not compliant. Your motorola radios are FCC 
Certified but they also TRASH any useable band they operate in ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 
! Almost ANY non-compliant equipment builders out there operate systems that 
are much more co-location friendly, they allow multiple people in the areas 
to operate on the same frequencies. Stick a pipe in it already 
Compliant systems


Do me and 100s of others a favor and go do some work, keep your mouth shut 
unless you have something valuable to share. Apparently you have MUCH too 
much time on your hands.

Behalf Of Zack Kneisley

John, List.. anyone else really.

I was trying not to get into a discussion at a 12 year old level. I
merely
support anyone who feels that they want to change something, through a
structured method. Although I agree on this particular issue, making a
statement  look at our code of ethics does not accomplish that Ralph
requested.


[Mac says]

I think our Code of Ethics states precisely what Ralph was looking for. 
He
was looking for something that states WISPA's position on certified -vs- 
non

certified gear I would like to ask the WISPA board to publish a position
paper on legal operation and guidelines for WISPs to use in order to meet
the current rules and if our Code of Ethics aren't in black and white 
for
all to see then I will see if we can get them enlarged. I don't think it 
can

be more readily apparent than that. Producing a paper would be a total
waste of time imho. If you have trouble ciphering what we have - -another
one is not going to clarify it any better.



Is there no structure in WISPA? Is there no means to petition an
organization that supposedly represents all wisps to entertain the
mans
request? Is there no sturcture in WISPA that is aimed towards ratifying
or
creating a documents.


[Mac says]

  I have yet to understand what anyone needs that we haven't already made
available. Our stand is in our Code of Ethics.



I think what it comes down to is a few simple questions.

Does a member of WISPA have the right to request such a public stance?
Does WISPA have a means of debation these requests?
Is there even a process in place that could lead to a document such as


[Mac says]

 See above and yes. We are here for all WISPs. That means those that are
c0mpletely illegal as well as the legal and those of us who are somewhere
in-between or caught in the middle. If the statement that you are looking
for from WISPA is to state that you have to be 100% legal or you can't be 
a

member of the organization - - that will never happen, That would be like
telling us sinners that we aren't welcome at church. We are a lobbying
organization and we are here to lobby whoever we can to make the changes
that we see needed to make our jobs as WISPs more successful. We have 
never

had anyone to step up to the plate for us like we do at WISPA. No one has
ever presented anything to the FCC on your (and every other WISP) behalf,
but WISPA. We have made many trips to DC right out of our own back 
pockets

because it affects us too. The truth of the matter is that the more of us
there are all gathered under one umbrella - - the louder our voice in DC 
and
the bigger impact we will have on this industry. We have the opportunity 
to
shape it into a more formidable playing field for the mom  pop shop that 
so

many of us are today.

We are not a police agency and we are not a reporting agency. If you 
aren't
filling out your form 477 then I (and the rest of the board) will urge 
you
to do so. If you aren't running FCC certified gear then I (and the rest 
of

the board) will urge you to get working on that too. If you choose not to
fill out your form 477 then we will attempt to educate you as to why you
need to be doing this. If you aren't using FCC certified gear then we 
will
attempt to educate you as to your advantage of following through with 
this

task as well.

We are friends with the FCC, FBI, Homeland Security as well with our
individual Congressmen and Senators. We are on the same side they are and
are all about being legal, promoting legal gear and being professionals 
at
what we do. I have yet to figure out where anyone came up with the idea 
that

we were anything different than that!!

That's all I have to say about that! :-) (Forest - Forest Gump)

If WISPA is not open to have a democratic way to represent the

wisps, then this whole debate has no merit. If an individual that comes

Yep, and addition to being fully FCC Part 15 certified, I plugged it in with

I don't need to justify legality to allow someone to rationalize illegality.
Sorry

As well known as you are to Mikrotik Butch (even I was about to hire you for
some MT Router work), why don't you encourage MT to make some certified
designs?

WISPA's wish for a do it yourself palette of devices to cobble together and
be certified is a pipe dream. The FCC doesn't work like that.
If they did, then Kenwood, Icom, Motorola, and the others would already have
do-it-yourself commercial radio kits. And you'd be able to go to Radio Shack
and buy a kit to build a microwave oven project.

How can we WISPS as an industry just blatantly defy the rules. Because they

I was only aware of the DigitalLogger device at that low a cost point ($89 
+ $39 for autoping.)

If you find the other one, let us know.
I believe the The Digital-Logger device does have the ability to allow you 
to automate scripting into it. Did you check the FAQ on thier website, I 
thought I saw a help file on that.

Subject: [WISPA] Remote power Reboot.



Hi all,

I am looking for a remote power reboot solution that works with telnet 
and/or auto ping for under $100. I know a couple of months ago I found 
one googling for about $89, but for the life of me can't find it 
again(guess I should have bought it then!).


I only need AC one outlet for this to reboot a cable modem/router. I can 
only seem to find Dataprobes stuff, and with a background in electronics 
and programming, I have yet to see where the gold is at in this for $300.


I found this one http://www.digital-loggers.com/lpc.html but it doesn't 
work with telnet according to the email I just received from them. I 
guess I could just use the auto-ping feature and not have to use telnet, 
but the other one I had found did everything I was looking for.


I have an access server that I can dial into and access my network, but 
to reach other gear inside, I have to telnet to them. TIA for any 
suggestions.

[WISPA] VOIP Providers with Virtual Office Type Setups - CALL ME NOW

2007-07-27 Thread JohnnyO
Need a very quick solution to a very aggrivating problem. BellSouth and Us 
have been arguing for months over excess charges on our bill from when we 
had T1 services through them. Apparently this morning, they have decided to 
shut off our phone lines into our office. *There way of making us 
pay for stuff we do not owe them for *


I am needing an almost overnite VoIP / Virtual Office type setup from 
someone who has reasonable pricing and a damn good service. If you are going 
to call and expect us to pay more then $100.00/mo for a 1-800 # type setup 
with 3 extensions. Don't bother...


If anyone has any solutions they would like us to take a look at , we will 
be making a decision today by noon.

I think magnetic mounts are used by lazy / cheap people who do not want to 
spend the $$ nor the time to do it right. Get a professional welder... Be 
done with it, sleep at night. A magnetic mount would never fly with our 
approval board on our water tower systems.

I don't intend to ruffle any feathers, nor do I direct this at any one
individual
but, the number of assumptions made and the knee-jerk reactions and
false statements being made in response to a suggestion that
magnetic mounts can be successfully used in some circumstances is both
amazing
and somewhat disappointing. I would have hoped that we could have a
more professional atmosphere on this list.

Best practices if it in this case is taken to mean to use a
commercially available
professionally engineered mount which has been engineered to withstand
100 mph wind loads (to use an arbitrary example) instead of using a
mounting
system which will withstand much more than that, albeit not a
professionally
engineered solution is just wrong. I would rather go with the stronger,
more stable solution rather than compromise on the integrity of the
mounting
to attain the engineer's label. Whether that is best or not I suppose
would
depend upon whether your goal was safety or following the norm.

It has been suggested in another post that nothing should ever be mounted
on a tower that some idiot might at some point decided to use as a tie-off
anchor point. That is a good idea in practice, but how many of us have
attached
a lightweight yagi antenna to a tower leg, assuming that nobody would ever
be foolish enough to use it to tie off to, or even use as a foothold or
handhold?
Are we supposed to only use yagi antennas engineered to withstand improper
use in case some idiot decides to tie off to one? What about omni
antennas consisting
of a thin metal rod, possibly encased in a small fiberglass tube? The
point is
that while safety should be a top priority, the goal of never mounting
something
on a tower that could at some point be mis-used as an anchor or support
point
is an unrealistic goal, which I would go so far as to say that those who
propose
such a goal have not been able to meet themselves, assuming that they have
actually mounted equipment on towers.

As far as mounting heavy stuff which might fall off and hurt someone, I
would
assume that the reaction(s) in this thread would indicate that
non-penetrating
roof mounts, chimmney mount brackets, clamping to roof vents not
specifically
engineered to withstand such use, and all other forms of mounting which
might
under some conditions fail and allow the heavy objects to fall would be
outlawed in your town were you given the regulatory authority to do so. 
Or,

perhaps because they were designed by professionals they would pass
muster in your book in spite of the fact that any fool looking at them 
could

imagine a likely scenario in which they would fail.

I have seen numerous professionally engineered solutions which I would 
not

use in a given circumstance because of the likelihood of it failing, and
have
in several instances used a solution designed by an amateur (me) so that
I could rest easier at night, knowing that I have done what I could to
mitigate
the actual risk to life and property. Sometimes that means doing things in 
a

way that is out of the norm, which scares some people. That they are
scared
by that which is not normal without a rational basis for their fear is
disheartening. Many rules and regulations have been foisted upon us and
have limited the options available to those less suited for the job at 
hand

simply because of those irrational fears.

I have seen mounts which were professionally mounted to towers using
welded studs (either welded to existing towers or in some cases to towers
being constructed) using small diameter bolts which were definitely not
something that I would trust my life to, and other mounts that were well
engineered and would likely withstand likely wind loads on the equipment
that they were supporting, yet which will probably fail in hurricane or
tornado
force winds. Are these in-appropriate? should we engineer everything to
withstand +500mph wind loads? Should all magnets be outlawed? (I see
lots of magnetically mounted omni antennas on vehicles traveling at high
speed down public roadways, can you imagine that???) I bet some of those
responding negatively to magnetic mounts even have magnets holding stuff
on their refrigerators, one of the highest use and traffic areas in the
typical
home.

I can show numerous examples of solutions designed and built by
amateurs which in the final analysis are safer and better  solutions than
commercially available

Hi Folks,

We had what turned out to be a minor tower accident involving one of our
tower climbers.

It appears that he had attached a wrench to the wrong carabiner on 
another
climbers harness.  When climber #2 detached the carabiner, the wrench 
fell
without his knowledge.  Climber #2  was up to 50' above Climber #1 at 
this

time.  The wrench appears to have hit the ladder directly in front of
Climber #1's face and entered end-first into his mouth.  This chipped a
couple of his front teeth, cracked one of his wisdom teeth, and tore a
quarter-sized hole in the soft pallet near the rear of his mouth.  The

tear

required six stitches.

Needless to say, we are quite grateful for the outcome.

This incident underscores the extreme risk that our climbers operate

under.

It also illustrates how a very simple error can have potentially

devastating

consequences.  His  injuries, although quite painful, were not life
threatening.  It could easily have been otherwise.  Had the wrench hit 
his

temple, forehead, or eye socket, it could have resulted in blindness or

even

death.

Our hats go off to all of the brave guys who operate in this environment.

May God bless you all.

Best deal was a 12Kw I got that was brand new, but the transfer switch and
the top of the generator were slightly dented. Seems like I gave $1500.00

I have been told by the HD folks that unless you have it installed by their

Not quite. I was going on the price posted with the OP's link, which had
a displayed price of about $3800 (at the time I looked at it, at least).
That unit can run on either propane or natural gas, out of the box (as
it were).

We paid about $3000 plus sales tax and delivery, which made it around
$3200, including the transfer switch and sundry bits.

I was surprised to find a good price on a generator at Lowe's, but then
I always thought of Lowe's as more of a home improvement store, and
didn't expect them to carry things this big. (Maybe I'm just naive or
something, dunno.)

If it was just for radios, I'd be just using ups with extra batteries, but 
it's actually for a small data room with a half a dozen or more servers

Right now we are just using ups for each server, but they don't last long, 
they just help if the power blinks or is out for a short time.


But if the power is out for a few hours, I'd like to keep operating.

George,

We investigated these units about 4 years ago, and they were our first 
pick for converting to Propaine backup.
However, at the time we decided against it for cost reasons. We did not 
need 16Kwatt and we were not aware of a 7Kwatt model at that time.
The $3500 for the 16K base unit is not the only cost. The autotranser 
switch added about $500, and then the Propain Tank is also an additional 
cost, but more importantly, the second we used Propaine in a cmmercial 
building, we needed a licensed Propain installer to do the work, to meet 
landlords requirements, which added another grand or two.


We instead installed Triplite 3500 watt power inverters $500 + 8 high end 
batteries (CD150AH batteries @ $350 each, but have a 10year + lifespan).


The arguement was that generators can be finicky, sometimes not starting 
on demand, if not routinely tested and started, and with the battery 
inverter solution we also were bypassing a high UPS cost, which is high 
for 3500watt rated units. So we solved our problem for 3 grand, instead 
of 6 grand after all considered, said, and done.


Now with that said. Seeing a 7Kwatt unit for only $2000, that changes 
everything! It would definately be more cost effective doing the 
generator instead of batteries.

Don't believe it. A section weighs about 40-50 lbs and you need a good 
rope

and certainly a better pulley and clamps that he shows.
I'd be afraid of his setup.

Well that looks fairly simple.

There's not much out there for gin pole videos.  :-p

There's a lot to say on this site, though I dunno if any of it is correct:

Re: [WISPA] FM Radio and Ethernet

2007-05-23 Thread JohnnyO
We ground everything properly and sometimes with overkill . We lose 2-3 
entire tower sites per year Thank you God ! :) LOL


When you take direct hits - there isn't much you can do but hope for the 
best. Good grounding will only prevent losses due to near hits and static 
discharges.

Hmmm, Ok, I should have read the entire thread.  Any WISP who does not 
deploy a proper grounding system is asking for it.


We ground to copper halos that are attached to three eight foot copper 
clad rods.  There are grounded surge supressors between each antenna and 
each radio and there are grounded surge supressors on each PoE line 
between the radio and the switch.


The switch is grounded.

So I can't say why someone else does not deploy a proper ground but I can 
say that we have not lost a radio in two years.  I hasten to add that is 
not braggin' and please don't get me God, I didn't mean it to sound like 
anything but thanks.

Nothing stops direct hits.  A spark that traveled through miles of air 
isn't really going to care what else is between it and the ground.
Good ground is the lifesaver for nearby hits that induce wild 
voltages.


And following the code is always best for the health and safety of the 
people.

replaced the modem and bought a PCI Ethernet card and it's fine. 
What paths

There is still controversy over the value of diverting or directing

It's really fascinating and here's a fun place to start you thinking:

If properly grounded, the opposite is true.  The ground wire should 
direct the lightning to ground (hence the name) and away from your 
equipment.


Not to mention that in the case of an equipment failure that causes 
the power supply to put 120VAC on the case, etc., the ground wire 
directs the current to ground, not you.  It is always about safety. 
I would much rather have dead equipment than dead personnel because 
an electrical system was not properly grounded.

Run the cat5 in a separate (metallic) pipe (rigid, EMT, Sealtite,

the

top ungrounded, but that is:
   1) personal preference (eliminates ground loops).

2007-05-17 Thread JohnnyO
Frank - Muto had a very valid reason to whin as you say it. Muto pays 
WISPA a good amount of $$ to be a Vendor Member of WISPA. Dee has 
contributed nothing other then for his own personal gain.


For Dee to make an appology and then change his signature to reflect another 
free plug was a bit out of line I think.


Either way, paying members are what are going to get things done for our 
organization. If a vendor is going to support us financially, then we need 
to stand behind them and support them in anyway possible as an organization. 
And if that means slapping the hands of vendors that don't pay, when they 
get out of line, then so be it.


I don't feel Rick, George, Muto was immature or out of line in bringing this 
to as someone said the rubber meets the road.

Talking about products, pro-cons, best use, warranties etc., is all well

 I am not saying that CALEA is not real and I actually agree that is
  required, BUT, did the group have to agree with the rushed timing and
  especially agree to meet a standard that was not even defined?

 Within the law, it's up to us to define the standard.

 We met with the customer that can give us safe harbor status if they
 like
 our solution.  We also took the time and money needed to make sure that 
 we

 could get the RIGHT answers to as many questions as we could.

 
  They could have argued for some prior consultation to make sure the
  requirements were not a hardship for their membership.

 And how would anyone out here know what we did in that regard?  For the
 reccord, *I* talked to the FBI about CALEA and it's impact on our 
 industry

 segment.  *THEY* knew that there would be problems with the independant
 operators but didn't know who to talk to and hadn't yet taken the time 
 to

 find out.

 We're building a standard so that compliance won't create a hardship 
 for

 our
 industry.

   They owed that
  duty to the members.

 We fullfilled that duty as you call it.  We did tell them that CALEA, 
 as
 things stand, is a disaster for our industry.  They know and 
 understand.

 That's one of the reasons that they are working so closely with us to
 build
 a more affordable/lower impact solution for those that need it.

   Instead they mostly tried to beat up anybody who
  spoke against any aspect of it, and as you just tried, to say the
  speaker uppers were acting like hippies from the 60's and merely
  wasting time.

 Sigh.  Beating up?  I don't think so.  Sure, we called a spade a spade
 when
 people said that we were wasting our time in the wrong direction.  The
 time
 to protest is past, we have to comply now.  People fought the battle 
 and

 lost.  It's law and it's not gonna go away.  So now what.  What can we
 DO???
 (other than jumping up and down pitching a fit???)

   I believe in Government and Anarchy would be horrible,
  so at some point Government must be prepared to listen to people,
  especially an organization that purports to represent a large group 
  of

  people.  That is WISPA and that was what the group was organized

I am seeing pings times from 30-80, sometimes higher, up to 500, but 
average

is right around 100ms.  1500k down is average, with about 100-200k up,
sometimes more.  Really depends what area you are in.

I recently heard that on of the local cell providers is upgrading from
x1 to EVDO.  My question is for those of you who have EVDO in you area
what if any impact it has had, what speeds are being delivered and what
is the cost structure like.

Thanks for the feed back

I need more horsepower at one router site.

It's got a MT RB532 (233MHz/32MB) and it is pegging at 100% at times,
mostly
in the 85% range, though.  The location has a 19 rack (only about 18
deep,
though).  Need 8 FastEthernet ports.  No wireless.  Want to user
Mikrotik
RouterOS.

Can anyone recommend a box for this?

Re: [WISPA] Outsourced vs in-house email

2007-05-11 Thread JohnnyO
www.datapipe.com - you'll pay about $79.99/mo for unlimited domains and 
email addresses.


I will more then likely offend a few people here but I've asked several 
people here that have their own Barracuda's for quotes and noone can seem to 
touch the price I have been paying for 7+ yrs. I suppose their costs are 
much higher and are trying to recoup it on a low volume as opposed to the 
larger mail / hosting outfits.


Datapipe uses the Iron Port appliance and they also ANSWER their phone 
24/7/365... You get a live person, not some automated system and I actually 
called them this past year on Christmas with an issue I had with a domain.


Hit me up off-list if you want more information or input concerning this.

have about 15 domains we currently host, about 150 users.  Is it cost

Well Matt - not one of those people which would be me - will not ignore 
the fact of what you're stating is a valid reason for selling out due to 
Calea. I simply will voice my opinion on the matter.


I am sure that more will agree vs. disagree with me that selling out your 
company due to a Calea hurdle is not a good reason to sell. And I really 
don't like seeing someone trying to come in and push a challenge that we're 
up against as a reason to sell.


If you feel what I am saying doesn't hold water... then ignore me :)

Not sure how you can say what is and is not a valid reason for someone

with CALEA, while others don't. I'm not interested in that debate.


Simply put, I am aware that some people feel CALEA may put them out of 
business and would like to exit before then. If you are one of those 
people contact me. If you are not one of those people then simply ignore

Now, I HAVE a suggestion for LE for how to get information, and I'll be
happy to help them do it, but my particular network simply has NO possible
mechanism.  I have spent weeks trying to figure some possible way to meet
the definition of compliance but it isn't possible.

Of course, this is of no help to the poor people who now face serious
financial issues.   I regret that WISPA refuses to officially go to bat 
for

them.

For that matter,  I regret wasting WISPA's time.  You fine folks are now
reading my last post to anything related to WISPA and on any WISPA list.
When WISPA turned it's back on the small people, and started insisting 
that

defending right and good was no longer allowed by a mature industry,
defining mature as being absolutely blind to issues of right / wrong or
even recognition that government is overreaching, it lost my support. 
When

it became downright hostile to the interests of us as people,  it set up
itself as something I am hostile to as a matter of principle.  As one of 
our

forefathers said, the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.  Not just
during speeches, not just as talking points during elections, but in EVERY
aspect of our lives, be it religious, business, political, social, and
educational.   When hostility to the notion of defending ourselves against
overreaching government is displayed for purposes of expedience or
convenience or ingratiating ourselves with those in power, then I cannot
in good conscience support or be associated.  Sorry.  If principle isn't
worth defending and upholding, it's not principle, just public stances.
I will never regret upholding principle, but I will certainly regret NOT.

I have very much enjoyed some of the conversations over the many moons, 
the
awesome character and generosity post Katrina displayed by so many, and 
some
of the great people I've conversed with and some of the most fascinating 
and

thought provoking discussions over the many months I have been here.

A few years ago, I would have probably kept my mouth shut and just gone
along.   But no more.  I have had more than enough.  I decided that I will
live, speak, and associate according to my best conscience.  It applies 
even

to my business and how I treat my customers.   My first taste of this was
when I turned down a job because it required me to violate my conscience.
I was unemployed and utterly broke.  Some thought me insane, but just days
later I had a real job, with pay dramatically exceeding the one I turned
down...and I got to live and work the highest ideals.

Seriously, folks...  It's been a fascinating ride, and I have no hostility
to any of you, though we disagree or agree or dont' even understand each
other.

I'll be easy enough to find elsewhere...  Just look for the fanaticly
devoted wireless and freedom advocate, and I'll be there.

Later, folks.

So all of you stand up, remember why the rest of the world use to admire

Remember, how late your country came into WWII. The general populace were

happy to help them do it, but my particular network simply has NO 
possible

mechanism.  I have spent weeks trying to figure some possible way to meet
the definition of compliance but it isn't possible.

Of course, this is of no help to the poor people who now face serious
financial issues.   I regret that WISPA refuses to officially go to bat 
for

them.

For that matter,  I regret wasting WISPA's time.  You fine folks are now
reading my last post to anything related to WISPA and on any WISPA list.
When WISPA turned it's back on the small people, and started insisting 
that

defending right and good was no longer allowed by a mature industry,
defining mature as being absolutely blind to issues of right / wrong or
even recognition that government is overreaching, it lost my support. 
When

it became downright hostile to the interests of us as people,  it set up
itself as something I am hostile to as a matter of principle.  As one of 
our

forefathers said, the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.  Not just
during speeches, not just as talking points during elections, but in 
EVERY

aspect of our lives, be it religious, business, political, social, and
educational.   When hostility to the notion of defending ourselves 
against

overreaching government is displayed for purposes of expedience or
convenience or ingratiating ourselves with those in power, then I 
cannot

in good conscience support or be associated.  Sorry.  If principle isn't
worth defending and upholding, it's not principle, just public stances.
I will never regret upholding principle, but I will certainly regret NOT.

I have very much enjoyed some of the conversations over the many moons, 
the
awesome character and generosity post Katrina displayed by so many, and 
some
of the great people I've conversed with and some of the most fascinating 
and

thought provoking discussions over the many months I have been here.

A few years ago, I would have probably kept my mouth shut and just gone
along.   But no more.  I have had more than enough.  I decided that I 
will
live, speak, and associate according to my best conscience.  It applies 
even

to my business and how I treat my customers.   My first taste of this was
when I turned down a job because it required me to violate my conscience.
I was unemployed and utterly broke.  Some thought me insane, but just 
days

later I had a real job, with pay dramatically exceeding the one I turned
down...and I got to live and work the highest ideals.

Seriously, folks...  It's been a fascinating ride, and I have no 
hostility

to any of you, though we disagree or agree or dont' even understand each
other.

I'll be easy enough to find elsewhere...  Just look for the fanaticly

 I'm planning to use an RB112 with an SR9 for the NLOS clients and

RE: [WISPA] LMR600, LMR900, Heliax

Jeez Ralph - your post is misleading to EVERYONE that is reading this.

Do you know what loss per 100ft is on 7/8inch heliax on 2.4ghz which can
be had for $1.50/ft  What is your loss at 900mhz on 7/8thinch heliax
? How about lost per 100ft at 5.8ghz on 1 1/4inch heliax ?

Scott - here is the following specs for your loss you'll expect... By
all means - if you can afford to leave your radios at the bottom of the
tower - DO SO ! and ignore posts like Ralphs which are nothing but
BS

Loss on 7/8th Heliax per 100ft

2.4ghz = 2dB
900mhz = 1.1dB

Loss on 1 1/4 Heliax per 100ft 

5.8ghz = 2.2dB loss
2.4ghz = 1.5dB loss
900mhz = .8dB loss

You'll need to add .5dB of loss per connector.

Putting your radios at the bottom and using some 250mw Teletronics AMPS
will give you a much better system then if you were to leave your radios
at the top because your AP will also see a 17dB gain on the receive
side.

You will not be creating noise, interference if you use the proper AMP
! 

Scott - contact me offlist if you need some help deciding what cable /
amp combos to go with.

The nice thing about running cable up your towers is - once you
weatherproof your antenna and install the proper grounding straps along
the run, you will more then likely never have to climb that tower again
! 

Ralph - please enlighten us with the reasons you've stated EVERYTHING
you did Opinions are one thing, but false information is completely
different and the only reason JohnnyO decided to take on this mule
headed post :)

You can buy them at Tessco, I'm pretty sure.   Stick with Heliax (r)
type
cables (hard line) for those distances, and use 1 5/8 minimum. The loss
is
amazing at anything above 450 MHz.  Look at any cell tower and you will
see
what you need to use, then count on twice the loss if you use 2.4 or
many
more times that at 5.2 or 5.8  Look at a price range of tens of $ a
foot,
once installed properly.

This brings you to the next obvious issue.  Now for the lesson in RADIO.

You have degraded your system so much by adding loss, you can figure
that
your antenna just magically became 0 dB gain instead of what it was.
You
may even totally offset the antenna gain and be upside down (as they say
at
the car dealer down the street).

So go buy the best antenna you can, with the most gain possible.  Of
course
now that moves us to the next step.  Can't get a high gain antenna
because
now the tower company wants more rent, or the wind load is too high, or
the
pattern is too narrow.

On to the next step-  More APs so you can cover the areas that your new
high-gain antennas leave out.  Then, more hard line, then more $$$ etc.

Or you can take the illegal, easy way out. Buy Amp.   Create noise,
Violate
Part 15 and your radio's certification. Leave yourself open for a fine.

Sounds to me that you are better off doing what most discovered the hard
way:  Leave the radios up top, do a great installation job,
weatherproof,
lightning protect, and enjoy the power you paid so dearly per milliwatt
for
in the first place!

Subject: RE: [WISPA] LMR600, LMR900, Heliax

If EVERYONE is misled, then EVERYONE needs a lesson in radio- especially
you
Jonny-O. My BS as you call it comes from over 30 years in 2 way and
data
radio and over 10 years in RF Engineering. But before you tell folks to
leave radios on the ground, you'd better check your sources again. 

I'd love some of your $1.50 per foot 7/8 Heliax.
7/8 Heliax was  $3.00 per foot 25 YEARS AGO!
Back then, 1/2 Heliax was about $1.80  per ft.

I'm surprised that the price hasn't changed that much since then, but
I'll
bet there's not as much copper in it. I know the center conductor is
copper
clad aluminum now.

Maybe your $1.50 7/8 Heliax was the piece that got water in it and was
discarded by the radio shop.

For 900 MHz, 1/2 would possibly *adequate* but I would not recommend it
at
all. For 2.4 GHz, you might consider 7/8, but for 5.8, better forget
anything less then 1 5/8, but most real users use waveguide.

Heck- even XM Radio uses elliptical waveguide at their frequency of
about
2.3 GHz for their terrestrial transmitters- and they have 100 watt power
levels! I can send you a picture right now!

Putting the radios at the antennas saves vast amounts of costs in feed
line.
Your tower owners are happier, and your rent might be cheaper.  I know
that
we charge the other WISPs we rent space to much less because they use
CAT5.

The best use of $ for RF is to use antenna gain.  You have nearly wasted
that if you long feed lines of improper sizing.

As far as justifying my statements- I don't really need to. Anyone can
do
the calculations, taking feed line and connector loss and subtracting it
from antenna gain and radio power.  The procedures and the numbers are
there
and speak for themselves.

Andrew makes a spiffy calculator for this purpose and it is available,
free,
at http://www.andrew.com/downloads/ilcalc/default.aspx


All of the following figures include a pair of Andrew N type male 
connectors.


A 100 foot long piece of Andrew LDF4-50A (1/2) at 2450 MHz has a loss
of
3.64 dB. That's over half of your power wasted.   List price (cable
only) is
$1.56 per foot.  The connectors are $20.00 - 45.00 each depending on
material.

A 100 foot long piece of Andrew LDF5-50A (7/8) at 2450 MHz has a loss
of
2.1   List price (cable only) is $3.58 per foot. The connectors are
$34.82
each

A 100 foot long piece of Andrew LDF7-50A (1 5/8) at 2450 MHz has a loss
of
1.28 dB  List price (cable only) is $9.33 per foot.  This cable is very
heavy so figure in a lot of freight as well.  The connectors are $153.22
each

Now if you would like to use a very efficient feed line, you can use
EW20-25
Elliptical waveguide, which is technically the correct cable for
microwave
frequencies like these.  It will cost you $33.40 per foot.  The
connectors
are only about $1570.00 each, but you will have onlt  .45 dB of loss in
100
feet!


Remember that these numbers are only for 2450 MHz.  5.2 and 5.8 loss is
higher, but waveguide for that frequency is lots smaller and lighter and
has
only 1.35dB loss at 5200MHz.  $23.5 per foot and only $500.00 per
connector.


I'm not going to justify my statements on amplifiers either. You can
(and
should) read Part 15 for yourself.  Go try to get Teletronics to give
you an
FCC waiver, or go ask your AP manufacturer, assuming they are even
building
certified equipment.

The problem I see with many of today's WISPs is that they are making up
their own rules to suit themselves.   Recently I saw a WISP post a

If EVERYONE is misled, then EVERYONE needs a lesson in radio- especially
you
Jonny-O. My BS as you call it comes from over 30 years in 2 way and
data
radio and over 10 years in RF Engineering. But before you tell folks to
leave radios on the ground, you'd better check your sources again. 

I'd love some of your $1.50 per foot 7/8 Heliax.
7/8 Heliax was  $3.00 per foot 25 YEARS AGO!
Back then, 1/2 Heliax was about $1.80  per ft.

I'm surprised that the price hasn't changed that much since then, but
I'll
bet there's not as much copper in it. I know the center conductor is
copper
clad aluminum now.

Maybe your $1.50 7/8 Heliax was the piece that got water in it and was
discarded by the radio shop.

For 900 MHz, 1/2 would possibly *adequate* but I would not recommend it
at
all. For 2.4 GHz, you might consider 7/8, but for 5.8, better forget
anything less then 1 5/8, but most real users use waveguide.

Heck- even XM Radio uses elliptical waveguide at their frequency of
about
2.3 GHz for their terrestrial transmitters- and they have 100 watt power
levels! I can send you a picture right now!

Putting the radios at the antennas saves vast amounts of costs in feed
line.
Your tower owners are happier, and your rent might be cheaper.  I know
that
we charge the other WISPs we rent space to much less because they use
CAT5.

The best use of $ for RF is to use antenna gain.  You have nearly wasted
that if you long feed lines of improper sizing.

As far as justifying my statements- I don't really need to. Anyone can
do
the calculations, taking feed line and connector loss and subtracting it
from antenna gain and radio power.  The procedures and the numbers are
there
and speak for themselves.

Andrew makes a spiffy calculator for this purpose and it is available,
free,
at http://www.andrew.com/downloads/ilcalc/default.aspx


All of the following figures include a pair of Andrew N type male 
connectors.


A 100 foot long piece of Andrew LDF4-50A (1/2) at 2450 MHz has a loss
of
3.64 dB. That's over half of your power wasted.   List price (cable
only) is
$1.56 per foot.  The connectors are $20.00 - 45.00 each depending on
material.

A 100 foot long piece of Andrew LDF5-50A (7/8) at 2450 MHz has a loss
of
2.1   List price (cable only) is $3.58 per foot. The connectors are
$34.82
each

A 100 foot long piece of Andrew LDF7-50A (1 5/8) at 2450 MHz has a loss
of
1.28 dB  List price (cable only) is $9.33 per foot.  This cable is very
heavy so figure in a lot of freight as well.  The connectors are $153.22
each

Now if you would like to use a very efficient feed line, you can use
EW20-25
Elliptical waveguide, which is technically the correct cable for
microwave
frequencies like these.  It will cost you $33.40 per foot.  The
connectors
are only about $1570.00 each, but you will have onlt  .45 dB of loss in
100
feet!


Remember that these numbers are only for 2450 MHz.  5.2 and 5.8 loss is
higher, but waveguide for that frequency is lots smaller and lighter and
has
only 1.35dB loss at 5200MHz.  $23.5 per foot and only $500.00 per
connector.


I'm not going to justify my statements on amplifiers either. You can
(and
should) read Part 15 for yourself.  Go try to get Teletronics to give
you an
FCC waiver, or go ask your AP manufacturer, assuming they are even
building
certified equipment.

The problem I see with many of today's WISPs is that they are making up
their own rules to suit themselves.   Recently I saw a WISP post a
recommendation to another WISP to set up a device to intentionally
interfere
with Wal-Mart's 900 MHz RFID systems. 

Nothing I say can stop or even sway any of you- that will have to come
from
someone with that kind of clout.  Maybe a competitor who follows the
rules
will come into your market, or maybe you'll cause a problem with
something
licensed and you'll have a white Ford Explorer with a government tag and
antennas hidden in the headliner pull up at your tower- but why would it
even have to come to that.

WISPS are taking technology that was designed for in-building LANS and
doing
remarkable things with it. A few years ago it was a pipe-dream to be
able to
do this stuff. Now we do it with off the shelf devices and do a damn
good
job.

Let's just make sure we set the good example!

you slice down to the tape inside, and it peels right off quickly
without
fighting the mastic.

Since I started doin this, I've NEVER had a moisture problem.

Also, wrap it when it's dry outside so you don't lock humidity into

temperature changes will then just wreak havoc on you.

fixed. It seems that after every long rain we see problems with the

use
the Scotch seal mastic tape to seal the connections. The guys do not

having to climb and they work hard to try to make sure we do not get

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Moisture Ingress

I'm going to have to argue with you guys

The purpose of the Mastic tape is that it creates a bond that fills the 
nooks and cranties of the item that you are waterproofing. So that if
the 
Super88 leaks, it can't get to the connector.
The two biggest places water gets into the connection is the two ends
where 
the taping ends, NOT just condensing through the material. If you use
Super 
88 on the inside layer, you are creating a CONDUIT for moisture to pass 
through, IF water enters in through one of the two ends (far edges of 
taping). It is VERY difficult to get a complete seal where the tape
toughes 
the Antenna and the end of the connector, reason being the antenna
surface 
is perpendicular to the connector you are wrapping.  Doing it the way
you 
are suggesting is definately easy to remove the tape, but it leaves the 
connector vulnerable to a poor seal at the edges, if that occurs.  I'd
argue 
that doing it that way, is taking away the benefit of why you use Mastic

tape in the first place. Super88 is meant primarilly just for UV
resilient.

Hi,

I am looking for some advice on the proper climbing technique for a new 
tower we just installed on. Over the past 10 years, I have climbed 
hundreds of towers including free standing, guyed, 40ft to 120ft without

any problems or fears. However this new tower is much more difficult. I 
believe it's a Rohn 200ft free standing tower with 3 legs. The issue is 
there are only foot pegs on one leg up to the 80ft level... then the 
pegs start on another leg and go up from 80ft to the top. Getting from 
one leg to another at the 80ft level is the challenge. As you can see 
from the picture, the gap from the top brace to the bottom brace is 
almost 10feet in the center (I am 6'1).

http://www.ida.net/users/tlj/teton.JPG

Anyone have any suggestions on a better way to accomplish the leg to leg

movements across the braces?

Thanks,
