Re: Station Control Help



Hi Bob, Joe,

This is very interesting; I have the reverse situation.  My home internet 
connection is from a wireless ISP who uses 2.4 ghz 802.11b Wi-Fi equipment.  
The run from my house to his central antenna is about 3/4 mile, with a gain 
omni on his end, and a grill on mine.  There are a few trees that we're 
shooting through, trunks mostly, aiming between the fluffy stuff.  I've had 
this setup for several years now, and by far most of my problems with 
service are in the fall.  Rain is not a factor (it doesn't really start 
raining much here until winter sets in).  Not the leaves (they're falling 
not growing).  Not anything I can put my finger on.  I'd love to understand 
why.  Any ideas?

SO true.  As the leaves are falling, my wireless internet access
is now up to 5 bars from the usual 2 bars or less in the summer.
When all the leaves are off, I'll be up to 8 bars and have 11
Mbyte rates again...
