Anyway, I've stepped up to the plate and am going to host the 1st "Official Personal Telco Equipment PlayDay"
When: Sunday, August 19th, Noon -> 8 (or whenever we get zonkered)
Slogan: Thank goodness I've got upgraded electrical!
Contact: (503) 282-5929
Where: My House
Where's That: 2115 NE 41st Ave, Portland, OR 97212
There's plenty of food places around the area, so don't feel obliged to bring anything!
PlayDayNotesOne: We're in progress right now - 40' tower up, read for the rest.
What's the deal: Bring yourself, bring some food, bring your GEAR! If you have no gear, bring tools (wire strippers, cutters, flashlights, screwdrivers), if you have no tools, bring a set of hands to help out with! If you don't have hands, well, bring your mind, because we're going to need some people who can think as well.
PlayDayAgendaOne: Meet, Greet, Plan, Deploy, Test, and then Play.
PlayDayToDoOne: Hook up access points, ad-hoc laptops, antennas, and generally see what all this 802.11b stuff does in the real world. How many clients can really share a base station before throughput goes to hell? How far does that Omni reach on different brands of base stations?
PlayDayEquipmentOne: 2 Linksys WAP11's, 1 Linksys 4-port router w/ wireless, 1 Apple Airport w/ External Antenna pigtail, 1 Superpass 8 dB antenna, some cat-5 spool wire, 10/100 network w/ DSL.
Needed: Crimping tools, connectors for pigtails, antennas, base stations, wireless clients, wire for Antenna runs, cell phones w/ unlimited weekend minutes ("Where are you? Move Left!"), CAT-5 straight & crossover cables, routers, hubs, foldable tables, extension cords, batteries, power inverters (for car travel), ANTENNAS (!!!), and anything else I have possibly missed!
Parking is tight on 41st, but there's plenty on Tillamook, so please take advantage of it. Even better, take the Max or ride your bike over!
Send me your list of bringables & RSVP if you can make it.
Hope to see you all there!!
