There is definitely a buzz in Phoenix about HSMM-MESH.  Several new HSMM-MESH nodes are now operational with many more planned.  A concentrated effort is underway to begin connecting the nodes.

Anyone interested in getting involved in the Phoenix metropolitan area can tune to 442.70 MHz, PL 77, repeater at South Mountain where John (AC7PH) can be found or to 146.520s MHz simplex where Woody (K7CQX) and Brent (N7SKV) often monitor.

My QTH is near Union Hills and 32nd St. Please include me in the loop on any linking planning.

Hi all

Anyone interested in some long path testing to the Wickenburg area?  I have node set up but need to get a directional antenna for range.

I have a device I could flash to the mesh software. Would there be anyone close enough to Apache Junction to allow me to set a link up with? How many nodes are up and running so far? thanks! Greg

My name is Matt and may call is K7CBY.

I have put up a node near Olive and Citrus Rd. No outside ant. but there is a node. I am new to this HSMM-Mesh so I am still learning about it and what I can do with it.

Hey Ron - I have a nanostation M2 up in North Ranch - Can see N0DAJ nodes. Will probably get the node on a pole this next week - just running out the window now. Vance, KC8RGO

I will be setting up my AirGrid at about Shea and the Indian Bend Wash. I have a clear shot to the east and hope to make a connection. I have tried with some lower gain antennas and a WRT56GL with no contact inside or out.

There are also several folks in the Mesa and Tempe area that are getting their nodes ready. I hope we can make this network work.

I wonder if there is any current activity and expansion of the mesh network in the Phoenix Metro area? I am interested in setting up a node at my QTH, but probably would have difficulty linking to any existing nodes, if there are any in the SW Valley. I am in Estrella Mountain Ranch in Goodyear, and unfortunately, I have a small mountain about 350 feet just north of my QTH (33.313567, -112.444733). 73, Bob - N7RJN

Hi:

I'm interested in setting up a node. I live in the Southeast valley near Higley & Elliot Road in Gilbert.

I have several old WRT54G routers, and I know how to download the firmware and set up the node.

I was wondering how you guys did your physical setup? Did you use an outdoor omni or directional antenna, and did you need an amp?

I'm thinking of mounting the board out of the WRT54G in a weatherproof box and installing it somewhere on my roof wth a tl-link antenna. I'm thinking I'll run the ethernet wire and 12v up to the box.

Anybody have any advice?

Thanks,


Jeff

A group of us in the Wickenburg/Congress, AZ area have tested with both the Linksys and Ubiquiti devices. We have used IP phones and IP camera for our testing. 1. The low power of the Linksys devices make them suitable for the last (mile??) local hook-up. The Ubiquiti devices have performed out in the desert with good quality phone audio and video at 5 miles. The setting was foothills on one end and valley on the other end. It appears that you do have to pay attention to the Fresnel zone. Height on the units is your friend. 2. We have had some surprising results on the back side of the sector antennas - nanostation M2 to rocket 120 deg sector at about a mile. 3. The video and audio drop out shortly after 5 miles with the Ubiquiti Rocket  120 deg sector  to NSM2. 4. The Linksys have worked well to multiplex phone and camera behind a sector antenna - better to direct connect if you can. 5. Our testing at 8 miles did not yield good results, but then we were aiming over the top of 30+ other 2.4Ghz routers. 6. We have not had good success with amps on the Linksys. 7. I have encountered several problems between the chair and the keyboard - but I am pleased with our successes.

Hello all... I'm in process of setting up a tribe here in Cottonwood in the Verde Valley. I have 4 nodes up and running and one is a tunnel. Anyone in the city running a server that I can connect to as a client?

73 - Wil - AB9U    Website is http://ab9u.com email is wil@ab9u.com

PS: I've also hosted a nice high power echolink node here for a couple of years. Node 5544 covers almost the whole Verde Valley well into Sedona and Oak Creek. You'll find it here on 147.460 no pl tone. It's up 24 x 7 as long as the internet cables don't get cut again in New River. And that's why I'm setting up mesh capability.

WX4LTG-NSM2 is "live" in southern Scottsdale. Not seeing a whole of of neighbors out there...

I'm on a NanoStation M2, so it's directional. I see one node out east of me (KD7DMK-N13), but that's about it.

Hey everyone, I just got a WRT54GS and got the firmware installed. It seems to be working but I haven't been able to connect with anyone with just the stock antennas. Next step is getting a better antenna and maybe some type of amplifier??? Does anyone have a recommendation on what kind of antenna would work? Preferably something affordable.

I'm located in Mesa at Gilbert and Baseline. If I can get a good antenna set up hopefully I can connect with a few of you.

Hello Patrick... I guess my earlier post did not take. You can find some very decent low price high gain yagis on eBay. They average round $15 each. 73 - Wil - AB9U
