I'm moving house around the end of Jan, and would like to know if it would at all be possible to connect to SC from the new place.

I've plotted it as PyroHills, it's near Butthead IIRC.

Anybody know if there would be signal all the way out there?

My current kit is 2.4Ghz, think it was a 17dB antenna. I'd be willing to upgrade if need be, but if there's no signal I'd be wugless Sad

LOS calc doesn't look promising, but I've got no idea where SC is actually situated.

Low quality cell photo - You can hardly make out the long tower on it...

Our place will be on the middle floor, I was standing on the top floor there, but I'm hoping to put it on the roof itself.

I'll go check things out properly when I go there again.

We're official residents of the Helderkruin area... gonna miss home Sad

From inside the flat behind a brick wall I see the following:
Sircastle 1 - 89 db
Sircastle 2 - 78 db
Sircastle 4 - 88 db

This is surely pretty decent?

Planned fitment is one floor up, and not behind a brick wall.

Put the antenna on top of my computer case, and actually managed to connect to the tower from inside the flat Smile

15 db TX SNR
20 db RX SNR

I should be chatting with the landlord tonight to find out about all the rules and regulations, before I move the antenna outside, but it's already connected to SC2 Smile

Hey Pyro, I'm in the complex right next to you, inbetween you and butthead, I've ordered a kit but I don't know if the trees or your building will be a problem to connect to SC, does anyone have any suggestions? I really wanna get set up... Question

Also, my LOS shows that I'm 3.02km away from Sircastle and it shows a direct LOS, except the trees and Pyros building might be in the way?
