 * Nigel has a lead on a new node at a local icecream parlor, requests a nucab. volunteers keegan in his absence to do the build for this node and "the mall". (no change)
 * DarrinEden: Needs to put together a team to do a site survey and potentially long-range link testing from the roof of his office building. update: ShawnWelter can help with climbing gear. (no change)
 * TomFitz and KeeganQuinn: Automated database to facilitate generating statistics. Discussion concludes that individual users must not be identified, but data could potentially be useful and interesting. update: MAC address tracking/NoCat logs. looking for volunteers (no change)
 * KeeganQuinn suggests holding a wireless summit in Summer 2004. Response is positive. More planning to take place in 2004. update: Nigel suggests using the MarkSpencer. TomFitz says it needs sponsorship. (no change)
 * KeeganQuinn is interested in doing a satellite dish modification workshop involving 2.4 GHz and/or 5.8 GHz bands based on Trevor Marshall's bi-quad design with Primestar and possibly DirecTV/Dish Networks reflectors. AaronBaer and TomFitz both volunteer locations. Planning to hold the event in February, after TomHiggins' January installfest. update: AaronBaer says Jan31st for research day, then feb for actual event. (no change)
 * TomFitz, KeeganQuinn, and Carl volunteer gas money for the PTP Van. TomHiggins will look into insurance. update: still need VIN, etc. AaronBaer says owner must insure. Nigel says last insurance cost $312 for 6 months. Shawn will look into insurance "deals". (no change)
 * TomHiggins: Suggests the use of available machines that are not useful as APs as community-accessible client devices. Consensus is that it's a good idea and that there is a need for such machines to be able to run the X window system. TomHiggins will talk to Joe from FreeGeek about this at or around ITEC. The CityRepair project may help with making kiosk boxes.
 * A good hardware grant with clear plan for use of the gear is what FreeGeek is looking for. Such grant writting projects would net us some gear and experience with grant writting.(tomhiggins)
 * TomHiggins suggests a Grant Writing Force be formed from interested members as a sort of study group/action team to learn how to do grant writting and how to get them to the right parties. The goal would be to actualy do a few simple grant projects at first (freegeek) and then work up to larger ones. Its a skill the PTP could use.
