I am closing down forum registration due to SPAM until I will be able to come up with an effective means of combating this activity. Meanwhile, if you need to register, send me an email to alex ( a ) portlandmeshnet.org and I will set you up.
There hasn't been much interest in a meetup until recently. We probably might want to schedule something. If anybody is interested in having a meetup, offer a date/time/location. Personal Telco Project has regular meetups. Maybe we can go and crash one of their last-wednesday-of-month meetups?
Looks like max has confirmed the space. We are on for a meetup at 209 SW Oak, downtown, at 12 noon on July 6th.
Unfortunately this might be a little late, however, there is going to be a meshnet meetup at Open Source Bridge conference (http://opensourcebridge.org/ ) "Hacker Lounge." PersonalTelco (https://personaltelco.net/ ) will be there along with other conference attendees. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 25th, at 6:30 pm, although, not limited to that time. If you are interested in attending, you need to register for at least a Community Pass (http://opensourcebridge.org/attend ).
There is also going to be a session about mesh networking (http://opensourcebridge.org/sessions/1418 ) as a part of the conference on June 26, 2014 from 3:45 – 4:30pm.
This is great. I was going to make a section of the website dedicated to this. Let me know what you need (CMS/etc) and I'll set it up. You can host everything you need here if you want.
I was building something like this myself but not making much progress due to issues I was having with all my hardware. I was going to post contact info of our group on the banner page (and maybe even provide a form they can submit) to request to be outfitted with a node. Also, I was going to add the ability for people to share their Internet access through the mesh.
Thanks for the info, I'll check out Sauvie Island sometime. The issue with the hills and such is the inability to vary the distance easily.
I've done some tests with Omnitiks and one APC Propeller 5 with stock firmware,
I recently got the Ubiquiti AirGrid (5 GHz version, 27dBi) which I am itching to test at long ranges.
I've experimented with OpenWRT a little.
cjdns is a nice idea but I always have problems with it. It is unusable at the moment. I need to isolate the different bugs and file bug reports sometime.
Ok, I think people might have other plans for July 5 weekend. How about a meetup on July 19/20th?
Many of their members are interested in mesh networking but, as an organization, they have done little to move on this. Or at least that is my impression.
