Re: [WISPA] East coast storm

2012-10-30 Thread Victoria Proffer
Thank you Martha and Brough for your updated status.  

I am so glad  you are safe!

 

For me, his was one of the better mornings to wake up to.  

I know that there has been a loss of life, but considering the size of this
storm, it is minimal.  

I also know that there will be power issues for days, but it is survivable
and manageable.  

 

I am glad to know that there are concerned folks that were there and ready
to jump in, should this storm had turned a corner for the worse.

I am proud to be a member of WISPA/WECAT, who has been networking since
Saturday to pull people, equipment and whatever the potential WISPs would
have required; should the need have arose.

 

This storm ingrains the concept even further in me that WISPA members are
not just members of a trade organization, we are a community first, but also
an amazing extended family.

We have the big guys beat, not necessarily by the size of our networks or
our pocket books, but by the size of our hearts.

You guys are wonderful!

 

God bless you all,

Victoria

Here is a map image I created from the National Broadband Map Data current

would have submitted last month. The East Coast states are very
underrepresented. Let's see if we can make a push to change that. If you
know WISP's who are not participating with their state mapping agencies

[WISPA] Happy Independence Day!

2012-06-29 Thread Victoria Proffer
Dear Members,

 

It is amazing to be a small business enterprise and be the captain of your
own ship.  

 

I can personally state that sometimes this independence does not always have
smooth sailing and maybe we question our judgment.  But it clearly takes a
certain individual or company to become a WISP.  

This is not an 'easy' industry.  Never the less, as the captains of our own
ships, this industry clearly has the drive and like mindedness to succeed.


 

In my years in this industry, it is clear that some fail, as well as some
become a sterling example of what I consider my industry is primarily made
of, girt, fortitude, honesty, common sense, gumption, imaginativeness (check
it out, it is a word =), resourcefulness ... oh well, you get the picture =)

 

With that said, I have to make my comment.  

It is one as an individual and not necessarily representing the views of the
board of directors.

 

The Century Link FCC filing is a direct attack on our industry and what our,
sometimes small, enterprises stand for.  

 

The Century Link filing, in my opinion and it has been mentioned, a clear
sign of weakness on their part and shows their dependency on .gov subsidies.
In this aspect is a victory for WISPA!  

 

Yet it is slanderous document that WISPA and the individuals accused must
refute.

 

As an elected member of the WISPA board of directors, I can assure you that
the board is addressing these issues and considers this a priority.

I am sorry if I don't get this right Fred, but I don't believe this is the
petition, rather than it is the complaint.

 

Is that correct?

 

And let me state on a side note ... your interjections in WISPA business, in

Century Telephone Enterprises, by whatever name it's using, has always been
the worst of the worst.  My nickname for them is The Devil Incarnate.
These are the folks who, facing a modem pool owned by a tiny carrier during
the dial-up years, simply refused to pass calls to that carrier as local,
even though the rate center was local.  Utterly sleazy. 

Their petition is indeed slanderous, basically claiming that WISPs can't
offer as good a service as they can, and demanding that the FCC treat all
WISPs like satellite providers.  This would let CenturyLink take Phase I CAF
funding of $775/subscriber to overbuild WISPs.

To show how ridiculous this is, just turn it around.  What could you, as a
WISP, do with a gift of $775 in capital per subscriber?  Yeah, a lot more
than they can.  That's a lot of money to a WISP, but bupkis to a subsidy
whore like Century.

I look forward to the Board's response, and if the Petition is open to
Comment from others, it deserves a serious blasting.

Fred,

 

There is a clear difference in what CL professes to be true, than what is
reality.

I am glad to jump on any bandwagon to disprove these hubris statements.

And I, personally, will be happy to support any endeavor to demolish these
accusations that have been laid at the WISPA doorstep.

 

I thank you for your confidence in my logic.  

I am just an old Missouri gal, and call it as I see it.

Is that correct?


It is their Petition for Waiver.  It is basically a complaint, but since
WISPs are not licensees, and the WISPs haven't actually done anything wrong,
they cannot file a real complaint against them.  Instead they are
petitioning to have WISPs ignored in CAF Phase I.

However, it is accompanied by a number of Exhibits which deserve attention
too.  To see it, go to the FCC's e-filing page, then ECFS, and search for
CenturyLink as the filer and petition for waiver as the type.  You'll
see that this was filed in a whole bunch of Dockets.  

They pulled a bunch of WISPs' coverage maps off of the NBM and decided that
they were implausible.  Now a few are sort of sloppy, basically simple
radii.  CL claims that radio coverage never fits a perfect circle due to
terrain and they are close to correct there.  However, some WISP maps may
simply stop at 10 miles even if they can go farther.  They also rule any
WISP implausible if its coverage area is more than 10 miles wide.  They
simply assume that a WISP has exactly one tower, so any bigger coverage must
be a lie!  I note that some of the maps look like they were generated by
RadioMobile.  But they were fed into the state mapping entity as part of the
NBM project. The state maps in turn tend to be normalized to census blocks
or even larger areas.  So the map is not identical to the RadioMobile
coverage prediction or for that matter any real coverage.  This is an
artifact of the NBM, not the WISPs' own doing.  The map exaggerates CL's
coverage too, the same way.  DSL touching a census block makes that whole
block look covered.




 
And let me state on a side note ... your interjections in WISPA business, in

Well, I may disagree with Mark and some other members of the list on many
political points, but I don't let that get in the way of our mutual
interests. You can disagree without being disagreeable, and concentrate on
collaborating on your mutual interests.  I even disagree on some of the
positions WISPA apparently took.  I think ARRA was a good program, just too
small, though BIP itself was basically a boondoggle.  But a WISP I'm hoping
to get going soon is dependent on BTOP middle mile fiber, as are some other
projects I'm aware of, as is one local government project I'm now working
on.  In some states it's a real game changer.  (And yeah, in some it's
turning out to be a disaster, but that's a different story.)

But the key point is that no matter how you feel about the way the game is
being played in Washington, either you participate, or you should stop
complaining about it.  For the average person, participation is as easy as
voting; for a business in a regulated industry, it may involve a lot more.

Things used to work better there in the past when both sides could sit down
and negotiate their differences, trading off with each other until the best
compromise could be met.  People who believe that compromise is inherenty
bad are preventing progress, and they aren't making things better for their
side either. Likewise, all of that government is always the problem talk
is not realistic.  There are all sorts of things that you need government to
do, from enforcing contracts (lest you need a mafia take over that role, as
happened in Russia in the 1990s), to building public infrastructure, to
keeping the food and water safe.  You don't miss the water until the well
runs dry; if you don't want government, try Somalia.  If you don't agree
with our government, then at least try to make yourself heard.  Even if it
is so corrupted by big money that it sometimes feels like a waste of time.
Reclaim democracy, don't surrender it.

WISPA has done great things in representing the industry.  Things could
certainly be worse.  The FCC has waged a War on ISPs for the past 11 years.
It has killed off most of the wireline ISPs, most of whom were also small
businesspeople playing by the rules.  Some have survived by going wireless,
others by being really really good at what they do and keeping their niche
markets alive, but it hasn't been easy.  Had the rest of the small-ISP
industry organized itself a quarter as well as WISPA has, then things might
have come out a lot differently for them.  Not that CLECs have done so well
either, though frankly I think they were largely collateral damage, because
ISPs depended on them.

Now the FCC has opened up the question of whether and how WISPs and other
ISPs should pay into the Universal Service Fund.  So again the fact that
this group is organized should come in handy.

A few thoughts come to mind:

* Battery backup with 2 or so hours of run time along with a remote page
for a power outage.  Doesn't prevent you from having to dispatch but it
keeps you from having an outage.

have GFCI outlets in my office.  Maybe I'm missing something here.

If you are mounting an outdoor NEMA box with your equipment and just
plugging into a GFCI then maybe you can figure out some way to get a
hardwire into the box rather than plugging into an outside GFCI?

The remote reboot power strip does nothing for you if the GFCI outlet or

WISPA has created a new list that will serve as the WECAT disaster update
list.

This list will be used for 'event' updates should it be necessary.  

This list will also help in keeping list traffic down for the main WISPA

Re: [WISPA] [Board] Providing Data to rescue/rebuilding teams during recovery/disaster sites

2012-02-23 Thread Victoria Proffer
Hi Zach,

 

Because of the type of business WISPs are in, we are potentially in inherent
disaster conditions, mostly because of maintaining tower structures.

And because we specialize in communications, as well as the fact, it is
WISPAs goal to offer WISP centric benefits to our membership, the idea of a
disaster team was born.

 

As Jack and Jay have explained, WISPA is already working on a Disaster
Response Team, but we are at that starting stages.

We have named our organization: WECAT - WISPA Emergency Communications
Action/Alert Team - WECAT.org

This will be a 501 (c) 3 company.  We are almost ready for filing, with the
exception of the Mission Statement.

 

During my last term in office, we started the State Coordinators Committee,
this was a step towards this organization.

We finally have about 80% of the U.S. covered with coordinators, who will in
turn work with the WISPs within their state.

 

Our next meeting we have a representative from the American Red Cross and
the two-way satellite industry that are going to join us so that we can draw
from their pool of knowledge. 

This will be great to help formulate our Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).

 

I would be very interested in talking to this company to see how we could
benefit each other.  

And being a vet, I love veteran owed companies! =)

 

Also, the committee is open and you are welcome to join, just shoot me an
email.

 

This is a very important task, in the formation of this committee, and I
feel very strongly that the sooner we get organized, the better.

Our spring weather patterns have drastically changed and we need to prepare!

 

Respectfully,

Victoria Proffer

Correct. WISPA is already forming an organization to formalize and
coordinate WISPA's disaster response capabilities. 

I think some kind of a tie-in between WISPA's disaster response activities
and Team Rubicon is certainly worthy of developing. I'd suggest contacting
Victoria Proffer (WISPA Board) to discuss this further.

 Hello All,

 Being that this list covers all 50 states, I wanted to throw out the idea
of
 getting folks on-board and assembled to help a company that has a sole
focus
 of providing relief/disaster response.  These WISP's/Individuals would
 basically be on stand-by and would be able to assist if needed.

 If a tornado event like Joplin took place, this company could call on the
 nearest WISP on the list to help bring up communications asap.

 Is this possible?

Depends upon if they are smart switches, but generally no.  Switches act as
extension of your network and are not recognized by your router, unless you
have multiple subnets.

  You make some good points, Chuck, but you are wrong about one thing:
  The

  innovating like never before as is demonstrated by the tremendous growth

  SDR (Software Defined Radio) amongst the ham ranks.  The Big 3 of ham

  manufacturers (Icom, Yaesu and Kenwood) are fast losing ground to the
 more
  innovative ham-owned and operated companies of TenTec, Elecraft and
  Flex-Radio.  These same ham-owned companies are selling a lot of gear to
  the
  military, so they must be on to something.
 
  Hams are pushing the envelope in satellite and microwave comms as well
 as
  digital communications methods which allow communications to occur at
  levels
  30dB below the noise floor.
 
  Anyone who thinks we're a dying breed and parasites with frequency
  allocations that should be reassigned to folks who can make better use
 of
  it knows absolutely nothing about what's really happening in ham radio
  today.  Of course, people talking strongly about things they don't

Re: [WISPA] Fwd: Dateline NBC Special on TowerDogs

2008-07-18 Thread Victoria Proffer
In a twist on all the dangerous-job programs viewers have already
 seen, Tower Dogs follows an unusual subcontract crew boss: a woman
 named X XXX, a single mom, former cheerleader, and the person
 keeping her tough-guy charges in one piece.


Ha, I wonder if she is an ex-Marine too ... ;-)

Re: [WISPA] 2012 - The End of the Internet

2008-06-19 Thread Victoria Proffer
The French Government is now blocking sites on the Internet.
http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5j8n3L3F45SLEJwIdAneWFZ5b7a-gD917A3I82French
to block porn, terror, hate web sites

Jun 10, 2008

 PARIS (AP) — The French state and Internet service providers have struck a
 deal to block sites carrying child pornography or content linked to
 terrorism or racial hatred, Interior Minister Michel Alliot-Marie announced
 Tuesday.

 The plan, part of a larger effort to fight cybercriminality, is to go into
 effect in September when a black list will be built up based on input from
 Internet users who signal sites dealing with the offensive material, the
 minister said.

 The announcement comes on the heels of a similar deal in the United States,
 also announced Tuesday. There, three service providers — Verizon, Sprint and
 TimeWarner Cable_ have agreed with New York state officials to block child
 pornography sites nationwide.

 Alliot-Marie said all service providers in France have agreed to block
 offending sites but did not name them.

 We can no longer tolerate the sexual exploitation of children in the form
 of cyber-pedopornography, Alliot-Marie said. We have come to an agreement:
 the access to child pornography sites will be blocked in France. Other
 democracies have done it. France could wait no longer.

 Among other countries that have already implemented similar measures
 include Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Canada and New Zealand.

 Under the French plan, Internet users, via a platform, will be able to
 signal inappropriate sites and the state, receiving the complaints in real
 time, will then decide whether the sites are to go on a so-called black list
 to be passed on to Internet service providers to enforce site blocks.

 Sites containing what appear to be blatant crimes will be referred to
 judicial authorities, the minister said.

 As for offending sites hosted in other countries, France will pass on the
 information via Interpol or Europol, the two police agencies, or seize
 judicial authorities there, Alliot-Marie said.

 She insisted that the plan would not create a Big Brother of the Internet
 and pledged her support for the fundamental liberty that is Internet
 access.

 France's upcoming presidency of the European Union will be a chance to
 coordinate efforts between countries, she said, adding that efforts are
 often needlessly duplicated and sites shut down in one country often pop up
 in another.


While I am in favor of getting rid of every child porn site on the net, I am
not in favor of this type of action.  Once it starts, it won't stop.  This
is wrong and needs to be addressed immediately, we don't want our Internet
to become like Chinas' Internet.

*OT - Yep, those Mayans...what a bunch of smart guys!
It is amazing how they could mathematically predict that we would be in a
solar maximum in 2012, also predicting that Jupiter would be on the same
side of the Sun as the Earth and crossing the Earths plane on December 12th
of that year and also seeing that Earth would be transeding through the
Milkyway on that date, a galactic period only seen every 26,000 years...y*ep,
some pretty smart guys!
Heres's a very good article: http://www.viewzone.com/endtime.html
And you can also run simulations at NASA http://space.jpl.nasa.gov/

If my Internet was blocked, I am sure that I would not get sites like the
one above.  The Internet, in America, is about free speech and our rights to
it.  By removing *ANY* groups, what ever they are, blocking my rights to the
US Constitution.

Re: [WISPA] 2012 - The End of the Internet

2008-06-18 Thread Victoria Proffer
Personally I think we are coming into some scary times.

*The state of New York is now blocking Usenet Groups*:

6/10/08
http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-9964895-38.html

 New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday that Verizon
 Communications, Time Warner Cable, and Sprint would shut down major sources
 of online child pornography.
 What Cuomo didn't say is that his agreement with broadband providers means
 that they will broadly curb customers' access to Usenet--the venerable
 pre-Web home of some 100,000 discussion groups, only a handful of which
 contain illegal material.


Verizon offers details of Usenet deletion: alt.* groups, others gone6/12/08
http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-9967119-38.html

 Verizon Communications confirmed on Thursday that it will stop offering its
 customers access to tens of thousands of Usenet discussion areas, including
 the alt.* groups that have been a free-flowing area for discussions for over
 two decades.



Who wouldn't be against blocking child pornography sites?  But I think once
we start blocking sites we are opening a can of worms.  The Internet is
about free speech in America, it is our inalienable right granted by our
Constitution.  Other countries do not have these rights, such as China, and
they regulate their Internet.

Are the bigger ISPs (ATT, Verizon, Time Warner, etc.) going to set policy
for the Internet? Are these monopolised ISPs going to be the Internet
police?

If so, how does that effect the smaller ISP's, such as myself?

 either. I googled this and saw items referring to all ISPs are in talks
 with content providers. Maybe the big guys, but not all ISPs are talking
 about charging for content.

 If you read the links to the Telus products they are for mobile Internet

 different things.

 just my two cents.I'd like to hear what others have found.

Re: [WISPA] Sandbagging the levy

2008-06-17 Thread Victoria Proffer
I believe the 93 flood was called the 100 year flood.
I filled sandbags that year, as well in a town called Sainte Genevieve, MO
(70 miles south of St. Louis).  The National Guard took me on a photo op and
the area was around Kaskaskia Island was totally obliterated.  There were
cows on roofs and houses floating down the Mississippi.  The levee that was
just before the island, that was in the middle of the Mississippi, broke and
sank the entire island.  The area around there has never recovered.
My understanding is that there are now 6 levees that have broke in
Missouri.  My network is on the west side of St. Louis between the Missouri
and Mermac Rivers, I doubt we will see any floods there...but you never
know...
Time to did out the waders and go shovel some sand...

 In any event, I feel for you guys in the middle of the country.  I filled
 many sandbags myself.  Make sure to honk your own horn after you are done
 with the emergency.  I know I am interested in hearing the stories.  Our
 industry needs to make sure the FCC and the rest of the world knows that we
 keep working when all the DSL and cable modems stop.

Re: [WISPA] FCC approves new method for tracking broadband's reach

2008-05-19 Thread Victoria Proffer
Hey don't get me wrong, when I know that the Federal Reserve is a private
banking institute that only a few privileged benefit from its existence, I
have to say that there is room for improvement in this country.  When I
understand the Constitution as it was meant to be understood and then look
at the acts of Congress and the office of the Chief Commander, again I know
that there is room for improvement.

However, this thread is not about that at all, it is about the FCC imposing
certain reporting on ISPs, WISPs, etc. to show where there needs to be room
for improvement in this country.  I have to agree with Scriv on most of
this, but if it is the FCC's intention to shift the change of responsibility
and put a lot of burdensome paperwork on to the ISP, than there needs to be
some sort of compensation.  I don't mean necessarily in a monetary
commitment, but maybe spectrum, tax breaks, etc.

Just my opinion.

Re: [WISPA] Fw: CTIA urges FCC to license -- and auction -- TV white spaces: Daily Update

2008-03-29 Thread Victoria Proffer
The Wireless Innovative Alliance (http://wirelessinnovationalliance.org/) is
also against the licensing of this spectrum.  Their members consist of
Microsoft, Google, HP, Dell, etc.  They are actively lobbing against it this
and wanting the white space to become unlicensed.

This could be a great organization for WISPA to have an alliance with.

I have encountered 
several MTU's that would use our service, however they would require ethernet 
runs.

Has anyone tried 
EOP? Comments?

I know that I saw it 
in action, four years ago and was very impressed.

millionaire today?
I am sure there are 
many.

When I started out 
in this community, it wasBreeze. than Alvarion
Then it was 
Sunstream, now Trango.
It was Bob Dillon, 
now the beastie boys?
The answer is a 
fresnel zone in the wind.

You are my 
brothers/sisters, because you want one thing.

You want to beat the 
POTS, the TELCO, the DSL and the CABLE.

But...what are we to 
do...they, (if we do not have a solution) will suck up our bandwidth...for VoIP, 
IPTV!! GEEZe

Someone told me, 
years ago, that the wISP is a wild intangible. Is that 
true?

All I can say is, 
that after years, I am still here.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Wi-Fi causes leukemia and brain tumors

The thing growing on the side of V''s head is caused by overuse of the
cellular phone.  Sue the cellular phone company.

Everyone else in the civilized world should bring a class action suit
against  all television and radio transmitting staions, police departments,
airports, airlines, phone companies, utility companies, and last/not least
the Department of Defense for invading their personal spaces with
omnidirectional kilowatt/megawatt transmissions of cancer inducing
RF/Microwave signals.

First, lets get rid of all doppler weather radars for all television
stations.  Next, lets ban the use of radar (weather and navigational) on
every vessel operating on navigable waterways in the United States.

Just to be sure, lets get those GPS satellites out of space, along with the
Direct TV and Dish Network transmitters in space blanketing us with this
evil cancer causing death ray...

Just to be sure, we had better do away with other such evil-doers of the
world such as Citizens Band Radio, 800MHz trunking radio, all cellular
telephone services (digital and analog), 2-way pagers, 900M/2.4G/5.8G
phones, wireless stereo speakers, baby monitors, wireless stereo headphones,

I consider myself to have a little common sense.  If I accept the theory
that WiFi is a danger to the public health, then I have no other choice than
to banish the FCC and make all RF transmission illegal.

How much money would we get back on our taxes next year if the FCC were
abolished and everyone in the FCC were laid off?

Can we assume that all illegitemate drug use has been stopped?

Underage alcohol consumption doesn't exist?

Binge drinking has been halted?

No unsafe sex occurs on campus or by students?

No students speed, or drive unsafely?

What a concept... Nothing allowed on campus unless PROVEN safe.   Guess
that
means the food service is halted indefinitely... :)

No coffee, no pepsi, no Mt Dew, no RC cola...

Just think of the upsides... No politicians on campus, either :)

Sheesh...

Theoretically, if someone attempted to hack into your network via your

If you could identify this culprit via logs and IP addresses, where you had

~V~

  

The times that I have detected attempted hacks, the source IP has always 
been out of my area. I usually will email a cease and desist request 
to the DNS Whois abuse address, and block that address from my firewall. 
If I had a subscriber attempting to break in, I would probably email him 
the logs and ask him what he is trying to do.

[WISPA] Looking for Trango

2005-12-29 Thread Victoria Proffer
Well it appears that Trango has done another flip flop on us.  
I called Electro-Comm this morning to order some FSU's and found that
Electro-Comm, as well as all other Trango resellers are no longer selling
Trango, it is now back to factory direct.  
If anyone has any new/used and working 5830 or Fox subscriber units that
they would like to sell, please hit me off list.

Happy Holidays,

Victoria,

Please don't take this as a personal attack, and like you, I too have some
issues w/ Bullit, but in this matter, I am in 100% agreement with Tom

By now, I believe that the entire industry (WISPs, Vendors, everyone) is
aware of what Part-15 stands for and the latest WISPCON attests that the
silent majority has voted with its feet

That said, we need to move beyond our personal egos; if we are to show 
prove to the world that license-exempt WISPs have evolved from the world of
duct-tape, bailing wire and pringles can antennas to building professional
carrier-class networks that are competitive with the incumbents, we need to
act like professionals and take the higher road 

Case in point, last week, Jim Patient (Mac couldn't make it unfortunately)
gave a presentation to a standing ovation keynote address to a packed room
of over 250 government officials in North Carolina about WISPA/Mac
Dearman/License-Exempt Wireless Internet's impact on Hurrican Katrina Relief

Now, imagine how it looks when these government officials come check out
WISPA.org, and see in the PUBLIC LIST ARCHIVES that we're bickering over
Bullit this, my network is bigger than your network that, yada yada yada
