Broadband Hamnet - Ham Radio Mesh Network

I have 3 RF 2.4Ghz nodes working at home.
One node is on the roof pointing NW from Glenmore Park using a Ubiquiti Nanostation M2 with 600mw which includes an 11dBi MIMO (vertical and horizontal) antenna with a 60 Deg beamwidth.

The other 2 nodes are sitting in the shack - Uquiti AirGrid M2 horizontal 16dBi gridpack - Linksys WRT54G ver2.

These allow me to create a local RF mesh and test the implementation of various services across the network.

I have also managed to setup an internet tunnel server and client with the help of Darryl K5DLQ.
The tunnel client is now connected to the New Zealand mesh network via Eddie ZL2AQY.

This allows me to see mesh nodes from ZL, G, F, W, KH6, VE and I via the tunnel connections.

I have setup the following services on the mesh data network:
  • Web server, which currently houses a blog.
  • Simple keyboard to keyboard chat system.
  • TeamSpeak 3 Server which is sometimes connected to my IC-7100, scanning the local Western Sydney repeaters, or used for duplex VOIP (Audio).
  • Streaming live video camera 

So there you go - I'm having lots of fun and learning at the same time.

If anyone gets a mesh node up and running and would like to connect to my tunnel server or client, let me know.
