BR—

I've got pretty good instructions for XP users on my blog.

A flag halyard would work nicely, but I'd add a line from the antenna to the cable, so that the wire's weight is supported by the line rather than the RJ45 data jack in the base of the Bullet.

What you'll need:

Bullet 2HP or M2HP
9 dB gain fiberglass antenna with N-Female connector on the base
A long ethernet cable, preferably tinned stranded wire, like Belden 1702A wire.
A 12 VDC POE injector
A short ethernet cable, again preferably tinned stranded wire, like Belden 1702A wire.

If you've got questions, give me a shout.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
