How’d this experiment go?

Contacted no one :frowning:
But it’s just one of those things one has to build and then people will come! Like a grocery store, you can’t shop there until it’s established and reliable. :slight_smile:

That’s a good metaphor :slight_smile:

Just curious if there is a test ‘protocol’… since I haven’t used my units for anything other than saying testing testing to each other (they do work, YAY!) I’m not at all familiar with how to work things. I am guessing that for privacy reasons there’s a way to turn on/off my current location? And did you want shouts or 1-1 attempts? I’m not on the eastside on Monday evenings but do think it’d be interesting to see if I can randomly mesh into the MOAN’s range.

Greetings! Tried pinging MOAN on the commute from West Seattle to Rose Hill this AM and (sigh) no reply. “Link availability” (an antique term) comes to mind. Haven’t successfully shouted to anyone but my other unit either though so not terrifically surprised. Eggs and chickens eh?

My iPhone took a dump and I’ll be getting a new one early in the week. THE GID OF THE MOAN CHANGED! The new GID is: 91050117106145. Please note that you can only ping it when my back up phone is connected to it. I will of course let you know when that is back online (should be Wednesday at the latest). I just updated the firmware on the MOAN and on my backup phone. So it will be good to go as soon as I get another iPhone.

So the MOAN is down, just for a little bit tho. This cheap SLA battery charger tried to burn down my house.

Got a new one on the way from amazon that looks to be a lot safer. So no net tonight BUT for sure next week and beyond.

Just my friends a few miles away, BUT I just made a facebook group and that should help. Plus I’ve been crazy busy as of late and have not be able to keep the net consistent. But that is now changing :slight_smile:

Hi guys, just found this thread and thought I’d say hi as I’m local.

I’ve had the legacy gotenna for 2 years now for backpacking but just got 3 mesh devices for Christmas and set one up as a stationary relay (+1 for me & 1 for wife to carry).

Relay is in Bellevue on a hill (~650 ft) just south of I90 near the southwest corner of Lake Sammamish. Just put it on the map. The device can see the mountains looking over the lake toward Mt. Baker but can’t quite see the lake. It can also see up Cougar Mtn.

I want to try and test range but not sure how yet. Going to try leaving a device at home with my relay tomorrow and see if I can hop to it all the way from South Lake Union…

Would be cool to reach through the MOAN!
