So I've got a long range wifi antenna hoisted up the mast and I come in to check how well it's working. And this thread happends to be the current topic.

I have a couple antennas that I'm finally getting around to testing (12db and 9db gain). My PC died and vacation got in the way a bit. I'll have a writeup posted in the not-to-distant future.

(Posting on the 9db now, hitting a wifi a mile away with an absurdly strong signal. Due in part to the marina's antenna, no doubt. I'll have to analyze the other dozens of wifis that I'm hitting to get a relative strength.)

Tahiti sounds great, btw.

Regards,
Brad
