Are you sure 27 56' 54.01"N, 81 27' 16.95"W are the correct coordinates?  This
is in the middle of the state by lake wales.

If it's 3 blocks away I'm sure we can hit it.

This is 7.1 Miles and should give a -60 dBm signal off of our AP.

I've suggested this before but after being attacked on the list for offering I
gave up.  We'd be happy to get you setup with a client node. That's the idea
of HamWAN, everyone can use it how they want to for their own projects.  Lu's
got a great project for it, and apparently Fios is not stable there :)

$100 for a conference is a good price, but I do understand.  I'm there for the
one on one conversation.  Presenting is fun, but I need to finish my slides!
