- One laptop running Kismet or equivalent network stumbler, with GPS if possible.
- Keep an eye on kismet to/from to see if you see more new PTP BSSIDs and check them out as well
- Drive around a few neighboring blocks to collect relative signal strength data, which will help in triangulating network location
- At the end of the day, upload stumbling data to wigle (or give to Russell to do so).
- Another laptop available to connect to the node
- At each location,
- Discover AP presence/absence
For each PersonalTelco-related AP present:

Identify the upstream IP using http://www.whatsmyip.org or equivalent
