Wi-Fi Testing

The 28th of August 2000, the Codytech team was reunited for an interesting test with wireless communications on the 2.4Ghz.

we have used a Viking telescope, with 114mm of diameter and 900mm of focal - 41dB. We mounted it as a wireless cantenna and we use a cantenna mounted on a 1 meter dish - 17dB. Both were seperated by a distance of 28.430 miles, confirmed by Radio Mobile. A 700Mb file has been exchanged in 13 sec at 11Mps speed.

Pigtail Orinoco Gold PCMCIA cards were used.

The good thing of using the telescope was we could locate the dish visually using the telescope itself. We could put it straight to the dish in no time :-)
