NodeArborLodge -- On Saturday (2021-07-10) Jason and Russell decommissioned a defunct SkyPilot SkyGateway device and AaronBaer's old garage wall-mount antenna mast at the homeowner's request after the gear had sat idle for a number of years.
NodeWygant -- went offline several weeks ago, Jason and Russell decommissioned the network with the exception of a Meraki MR24 and wall-mount plate in one of the basement units.
NodeRigler -- went offline 2021-07-07
NodeSteele -- went offline 2021-07-10
NodeMohawk -- went offline 2021-07-11 (checked google streetview, and CenturyLink fiber passes and has fiber taps on two adjacent poles, but their website hilariously says "no service, try HughesNet satellite service").
NodeC3PO -- the outage of ap2 due to a "misplaced" ac adapter and a faulty/damaged replacement has been resolved by Russell plugging in a new adapter this morning (7/14). Attempts to contact FreeGeek are wobbly (made contact, but followup is lacking and the continuing outage indicated the loop was not closed). Also on 2021-07-12, DirectSpace Networks announced a network outage which initially coincided with an outage of our backhaul connection, when Russell checked later, he found that channel 44 we were using for the pipe-to-hose link was suffering horrible (up to 20 second) ping latency which persisted into the night. Eventually tried another channel (first 149 and then 165), and the horrible latency was gone. There are inklings that connectivity in the village are still suboptimal, so it might be the interference is affecting the channels that ap1 is operating on, difficult to be sure from remote.
Ordered some Ubiquiti LiteBeam AC Gen2 devices, should arrive this week. Initially intended for NodeC3PO backhaul link Russell was having trouble with on Monday (3@$65=$195).
ptp-openwrt-files news: Russell finally converted to a uci-configured olsrd and removed the ancient hackery that involved just pointing at our old NuCab olsrd.conf files. See: https://github.com/personaltelco/ptp-openwrt-files/commit/6033e088fa0de5da9a4340b232760ced7d326d41

- Node notes:
More VZA nodes offline, assume Comcast billing and intentional. Would like to have a confirmation from Carl that the tenants are aware of removal of the free wireless before we pull any more down. Ideally new backhaul could be provisioned instead (CenturyLink was pretty clearly available for NodeWygant). Jason could help with hardware removal Saturday after 1:30pm or Saturday the 24th at any time.
NodeC3PO - Ted approved new gear purchase, will certainly want to test it for some application in the future, but short-term fixes for cut AC adapter cable and wireless channel fixed by Russell.
- Next week's meeting likely on Jitsi.
Monthly meeting proposed to be at NodeLuckyLab, Board election, Jason will not be in town.
