@termer:matrix.orgtermerthat's a shame01:32:21
@graham:castleton.esGrahamIf you find anything cheaper let us know 🙂I don't know of anything that would be cheaper01:32:47
@termer:matrix.orgtermerhahaha yeah I wish there was something cheaper01:33:00
@termer:matrix.orgtermerI can't find anything affordable for my use case below 2.4GHz01:33:10
@graham:castleton.esGrahamMikrotik might have some cheap 900 mhz stuff01:33:51
@termer:matrix.orgtermerThere was some cheap stuff I could attach to existing satellite dishes01:34:34
@termer:matrix.orgtermerdo you know if a specific dish would help or harm a setup, or if I could just use any old dish01:34:52
@graham:castleton.esGrahamFor 900 mhz? Usually you use a Yagi antenna01:35:26
@termer:matrix.orgtermerWell for products like this I mean https://mikrotik.com/product/ldf_201:36:34
@termer:matrix.orgtermerI'm woefully unfamiliar with dish setups so I have no idea if dish quality is even a consideration01:37:10
@graham:castleton.esGrahamOh i see. I don't think that actually uses the dish itself, just the arm the dish is mounted on. 01:37:29
@termer:matrix.orgtermerHmm01:38:05
@termer:matrix.orgtermerThey do sell products with a sort of "dish" thing with it, which is why I was led to believe the thing it's mounted on meant more than just a mount https://mikrotik.com/product/lhg_201:38:47
@graham:castleton.esGrahamOh, NVM just looked at the pics01:38:55
@graham:castleton.esGrahamYeah looks like it can use a sat tv dish01:39:35
@termer:matrix.orgtermerInteresting, might be a way to go01:39:55
@graham:castleton.esGrahamWorth a shot!01:40:08
@termer:matrix.orgtermerThe woods are still an issue, might just have to bite the bullet and build a small tower of some sort01:40:15
@termer:matrix.orgtermerThanks for the advice01:40:30

@termer:matrix.orgtermerDoes this look like something that could reach 3 miles02:17:29
@graham:castleton.esGrahamI wouldn't count on 2.4 getting through trees much at all02:17:58
@graham:castleton.esGraham3 miles line of sight that would work great02:18:09
@termer:matrix.orgtermerI may have to do a little surveying then02:18:33
@termer:matrix.orgtermerThere are massive trees in the area, I suppose I'll have to also see how much the height difference in the land is as well02:25:23
@termer:matrix.orgtermerno idea what an acceptable amount of trees would be either02:25:53
@termer:matrix.orgtermerprobably not many lol02:26:00
@freshgum-bubbles:halogen.cityfreshgum changed their profile picture.16:08:57
