Really interesting digital reading 

I am somewhat behind in my magazine reading just now getting to the July issue of QST which arrived before the first of the month. I have been chomping at the bit to sit down with it because of an article title that is featured on the front cover.

IEEE 802.11 experiments in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley.

The article describes experiments done by a group with off the shelf hardware to set up wireless networks. Since all of this gear shares some frequencies with the amateur bands hams can modify antennas add amplifiers and do things that Part 15 operation don't permit.

The results were nothing less than astounding! If you have an interest in using ham radio to network computers together find a copy of the July issue of QST and check out the article starting on page 35. It is a real eye opener.
