My GPS tells me the coordinates of each of my two antenna locations but since they will be too far apart to see each other visually, I won't know which direction to aim them. I need to know which bearing to take from one to the other.

I found a free app for my Ipod Touch that takes the coordinates of each antenna and reports the direction in which to aim each of them.

I am very new at this, however I always enjoy your posts...they are very informative and I really appreciate that.  Keep up the great work, and keep it as simple as possible.  As soon as I figure out how to put my picture on here I will...I have tried more than 10 times and it is very frustrating.

Thanks Again

Mark

Thanks for the kind words, Mark. I'm new too. I figure if all us noobies post and share what we're struggling with and what we're learning we'll all come out ahead. 73 Mark KV4I

Kudos to all of the new members in the learning curve. YOU are the people that move the organization forward. Developers at all levels are necessary but raw energy and curiosity are the driving force behind expanding the project. As you bring in others, show then how to get stuff done and begin using the mesh yourself, you are creating tools to place in your amateur radio tool box. 73, NG5V Rick
