I'm new and want to help

Hi all!

I because aware of the project at SCALE 14. I'm very interested in the project and I'd like to know how can I help and participate. 

I'm located in the SFV. I'm southeast of Oat Mountain. The map shows a tunnel node on Oat and my first step would be to purchase equipment and see if I can connect to the node.

Second would be to see if I could hit the node on Verdugo Peak when it goes live. 

Would a node on a tall building along Wilshire Blvd (Westside between UCLA and Beverly Hills) be useful? Not sure I could add a node on the building, but I will check.

FYI, on the map, when it says

FYI, on the map, when it says "Tunnel installed: true", all that means is that the operator has installed the tunnel support into the node.  It does NOT imply that it has ACTIVE tunnel connections.  Maybe that would be a more useful metric to put in the description.

Ah! Well that is good to know

Ah! Well that is good to know.

Does the node on Oat need a tunnel?

KF6NMZ,   I'd vote for a node

KF6NMZ,   I'd vote for a node on every tall building :) .     Chicken and egg, if you put it up, then others will connect.

Okay... I'm going to ask if

Okay... I'm going to ask if it would be possible to get a radio up. We use AirFiber 24GHz radios to connect the buildings. Maybe a 5GHz radio could be added above or below the AirFiber on the mast.
