#WWWD Wireless Village DC31 Wardriving Contest Last Day.

Driving an hour before work and several hours after the coverage has been good. 7 out of 8 foxes found but the last one remains elusive !

It wasn’t until the competition had started and my grid was committed that I realised that location, grid size and previously discovered networks was everything. Looking at the leaderboard it was clear to see the skill was in the choosing of the right grid.

I not going to win but it has been good fun and I have learnt a lot. Next year I will make better choices !

Update : The contest has finished and the scores are in. I have improved on last year’s ranking.

Flight Cases – Project Write Up

I have replaced and combined the Radio Cabinet and the Radio Bag with flight cases.

The cabinet took up a lot of space and was near impossible to move around due to weight. I can now divide the equipment, and weight, up into several flight cases. Change is frequent and its now a lot easier to move the cases around and modify the configurations etc.

The current three sections are Mesh, Radio and Network. “Mesh” at the top has the AREDN Node and the Raspberry Pi Servers and the Mesh Mikrotik Router. “Radio” in the middle has the SIMOCO radios and the Yeasu FT-857D. “Network” at the bottom has the Main Mikrotik Router, the Dev Servers and the switches.
