During Field Day this weekend we had the opportunity to do some antenna work on the roof. We got the base of a new mast installed for a series of microwave radios/antennas which will be installed very soon. We also ran five Ethernet runs which have been terminated and tested, as well as well as a rotor cable. All neatly routed and bundled with velcro ties, and the ends marked with colored tape.

I want to send a big thanks out to Lee, Martin, and everyone else who helped us with the antennas and cables and generally making Field Day a bigger success than last year.

Church Brian has informed us that the Church is planning to install solar panels on the roof. Lee has offered to coordinate with them to make sure that we're not interfering (or vice versa).

HacDC may very soon be an actual mesh node, and not just an island.
