+__What's Brewing in Simons' Kitchen__%%% 
+Wouldn't we all like to know?  While waiting on my WNICs and Pigtails from Ryan 
+I am pondering about the loss dilemma we have with long runs of LMR 400.%%% 
+__Current Project__%%% 
+My current project it to get an access point working, but a very special one here are the constraints: 
+- Not more than 1 meter from the antenna%%% 
+- Remotely managble%%% 
+- Be homebrew (no cheating with hacked ap's)%%% 
+- Cheap%%% 
+- Small%%% 
+How do I achieve this... I have a few Ideas in the pipeline. 
+__Idea 1: Compaq Contura Aero AP__ 
+My initial idea was to build an AP out of a Compaq Contura Aero.  However the specs of that subnotebook although good and there is a lot about them on the web with regard to installing *nix was excellent.  However it only has 1 PC slot.  I have scrapped that idea. 
+__Idea 2: Gut a Broken Notebook Approach AP__ 
+I am now in the process of working around the idea of using the guts of a notebook with a broken screen and putting it into a weather proof enclosure. 
+__Stay Tuned__ 
+If anyone has a notebook with the following specs and is willing to part with it please let me know. 
+- Broken Screen%%% 
+- Fdd Drive%%% 
+- P100 cpu%%% 
+- 16 Mb RAM%%% 
+- 500 Mb Hdd%%% 
+- all ports working (SVGA,Serial,PCMCIA slots x2)
