    Broardband Wireless

    The Amateur Radio hobby is moving on and one of the most rapidly expand areas is digital. Cheap low powered processors and clever applications are fuelling experimentation and development. The world is increasingly interconnected and technological advances are progressing at an ever faster rate. Corporate entities are evolving ever faster and our hobby is following suit. The WIA looks set to enable digial modes for foundation licences.

    Requires fixed line ie existing phone line. ADSL modem, an ADSL plan. eg: Typlically, $60/mth for 500 GB/mth. But 12 month term.

    2.4 or 5.8 GHz wireless bridge to an ISP access point with unlimited, highspeed, fibre connection. Microlink

    There are many vartions to this solutions and usualy involve using a members privare or business premises to provide a link. Bear in mode that this solution simply move the commercial connection (ISP) to another location. It does introduce many other variable and potentially costs. Issues to investigate.


    see the LIPD legislation and it says Radio Local Area Network transmitters must be used indoors (Frequency hopping, WiFi and RLAN transmitters  note 61 and 62).”

    Consumer Grade NAT (CGN) or Large Scale NAT (LSN)

    Carrier-grade NAT (CGN), also known as large-scale NAT (LSN), is an approach to IPv4 network design in which end sites, in particular residential networks, are configured with private network addresses that are translated to public IPv4 addresses by middlebox network address translator devices embedded in the network.

    Consumer Grade NAT (CGN) or Large Scale NAT (LSN)
    We are left with a number of applications (and application types) that currently break when Large Scale NAT is introduced.

    Point-to-Point Bridge Link 900M Yagi 32 Mbps


    2.4Ghz Rocket M2 Titanium

    The RocketM2-Ti operates in the 2.4 GHz band, and can do Point-to-Point (PtP) and Point-to Multi-Point (PtMP )

    5.8Ghz Rocket M5 Titanium

    Ubiquiti Rocket M5 5GHz airMAX BaseStation MIMO 802.11n WiFi Access Point. airMAX® BaseStation. Rocket M is a rugged, hi-power, very linear 2x2 MIMO radio with enhanced receiver performance. Rocket M combines the “brains” in one robust unit; it can be paired with your choice of AirMax BaseStation or Rocket Antennas.

    MIMO Antennas

    Multiple–Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) antennas have two or more antennas in a single physical package and are designed for use in IEEE 802.11n WiFi networks. By utilizing multiple antennas, data throughput and range are increased compared to a single antenna using the same radio transmit power. Additionally MIMO antennas improve link reliability and experience less fading than a single antenna system. By transmitting multiple data streams at the same time, wireless capacity is increased. MIMO technology uses Multipath (when wireless signals “bounce” off of objects and arrive at the receiver at different times) to improve wireless performance. MIMO technology takes a single data stream and breaks it down into several separate data streams and sends it out over multiple antennas. This provides redundancy. The receiving MIMO antenna will “look” at each stream being sent to determine the strongest one to choose.
