A few months back, I got an inquiry from a TV station engineer asking if it would be possible to provide him with an internet connection.
Well, I did some quick looking, got ahold of him and we had a tentative agreement that I'd provide him a connection for control and monitoring purposes, and he'd do the climbing, and in return (no dollars change hands) for building the 50+ mile backbone to him, I'd get to locate AT LEAST one access point on his broadcast tower. Well, I got a note from him just yesterday, as I had inquired about why I hadn't gotten further action, to find out that since the land the TV station broadcasts from is leased USFS land (lease is at least 40 years running, with a minimum of 5 towers on the site) the USFS is telling him he cannot run a second unlicensed band link to his TV tower. I don't have the details yet, but this makes me so mad.... so stupidly infuriating... NO danger, no negatives, their obstruction SERVES NO USEFUL PURPOSE... But they obsstruct just to obstruct. Power gone mad with self importance. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ neofast.net - fast internet for North East Oregon and South East Washington email me at mark at neofast dot net 541-969-8200 Direct commercial inquiries to purchasing at neofast dot net -- WISPA Wireless List: firstname.lastname@example.org Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives: http://lists.wispa.org/pipermail/wireless/
