Reason for Installation
It took three wireless hops to the Krassel US Forest Service Airport. We used redundancy with the PowerBeam 5AC 500 and RockDish 30dBi at each location. Watch the video for more of the features we built into our rugged and automated solution.

Wow, 

  What a great project!!  

 

I was wondering if you had more details (and pics) of the 4 seasons enclosure you used. We have built some similar type enclosures but it’s always great to see what other people have done.
