NWPA - Erie County

Planning on setting up a node and trying to get some clubs in the area to do the same. Not sure how successful I'll be but hoping there's more than 2 people in Erie County interested in AREDN.

N3WUT - Edinboro

I have always been interested in setting up a node as well. Just doesnt seem to be enough interest.

Mercer County

I don't believe I have a active node in my county either. Might be time to start a new trend...

You two are 13 miles apart.   Given the topography of that area you're probably not line of sight.  But if you found a water tower or tall building someplace in between to put a relay node you might be able to make it work.  Barring that, you could always set up a tunnel in between.  It's the "AREDN Starter Kit" :-D


What equipment do you recommend?

 I wrote up a Beginners' Guide that has some recommendations.  Take a look at it:
If you have specific questions drop me a note:

13.5 miles, 120 feet ... 130 feet elevation

Our longest link of 13.5 miles is a pair of Mikrotik LHG-HP5-XLs .
60-80 TxMbps Summer
80-100 TxMbps Winter.
Currently the Mikrotik RBLHGG-5acD-XL would be similar.
