A beautiful Easter Saturday allowed me to finally get an omnidirectional antenna installed for 2.4 GHz. This antenna is now connected to a WRT54GL. This node, VA5LD-01, is the first formal node of the new Saskatoon Broadband-Hamnet.
Planning is now continuing to have other local hams stand up their own nodes -- hopefully, as spring arrives, we will see other nodes appear. Arrangements are progressing to have nodes on two taller buildings to 'anchor' the mesh as we grow.
Plans are to use Broadband-Hamnet to link the logging computers during our planned 4A field day station hosted by the partnership of the Meewasin Amateur Radio Society (http://www.meewasin-ars.ca/) and the Saskatoon Amateur Radio Club (http://ve5aa.dyndns.org/).
