A shopping trip for village wireless VoIP

October 16, 2007

We took a trip down to Home Depot, having only half of a design in mind for an antenna tower. We considered a couple of tripod-like scenarios and an H-shaped base, but in the end decided on a 2.4-meter steel pipe and three steel cables running from the top of the pipe down to super-heavy-duty tent stakes (angle iron). Not being a plumber, I was surprised to learn that steel pipe is sized by the inner diameter, but of course the antenna descriptions specify the minimum and maximum outer diameter for mounting.
