New 2.3GHz access site installed

This was the wrap-up and finalization of a site that Colin had been working on for a few trips.  It’s located in the St James area and has decent visibility/height to serve those around it.  Derek VE4HAY, Colin VE4CST and myself met Isaac at the Bread plant.  We were able to finish tacking up the long run of cat5e cable to the mount point.

Colin finished installing the new MicroTik router and wireless cards into the enclosure that houses the flat panel antenna.  Also along with that was a nice 12dB 2.3GHz omni antenna.

Wasn’t too hard of a job, but took a few hours from start to finish – when all was said and done, Colin did the last bit of setup on the router board and away we went:

It’s position looks quite good for the local area — will have to make sure we get more hams active on it.

This site, and other remote sites like it, will be well-served when our new sector antennas come in – at that point, we can make a trip to our primary site and replace the antennas and adjust the frequencies – maybe even reduce our usage of the spectrum a bit.
