Spelling: NodeDFC

Location: Box Hill

Owner: Lunn [1]

Status: waiting/gathering

Line of Sight:

* North - no further than the railway line (800m)
* West - no further than about Elgar Rd (800m)
* South - no further than about Kingswood College (600m)
* South-East - a little further than the East Burwood Kmart (>5km)
* East - The dandenongs on the horizon (20km) but I'm not sure about
what I can actually see in front of them

Current Hardware/Software:

* PC Router

* 75Mhz Pentium
* 32Meg of RAM
* 100BaseTx NIC to LAN with 4 clients
* 10BaseT NIC to optus@home
* 11Mbps 802.11b wireless NIC for wireless clients
* Debian [2] GNU [3]/Linux [4]

* One yet-to-be-modified 18dB galaxy [5] antenna

Probable Hardware/Software:

* several ex-galaxy [6] antennas
* AccessPoint [7]s to be mounted in antenna mast for point-to-point
link (hopefully running Linux) connected by cat5 UTP with PoE [8]
* an additional NIC in the router for each link


* AccessPoint [9]s are too expensive so I may have to look for
another solution
* No one to link to at this stage, although NodeDBD [10] has
expressed interest


* 24/04/02 - On Friday I got hold of my first galaxy antenna. Tonight
I went up on the roof and was able to see Kmart in East Burwood.
Hopefully I'll be able to get a link in this direction and from there
a link towards the city.
