read the Getting Started section, all is explained there : http://www.ptawug.co.za/index/page/content/act/list/id/11

buying kit before checking line of sight is not very clever at all

* Register on www.wug.za.net - this is the main site for all the WUGs in ZA (DBN, CT, JHB, etc.)

* Activate your account and log in to www.wug.za.net (not the forum) the main page.

* Using Google Earth to get the coordinates for your location (please use the decimal degrees-only format eg. -25.5764, 28.4634 ... To set google earth to display it this way click Tools -> Options and set the coordinate format to Decimal Degrees)

* If you can not use Google Earth (blocked by firewall or policies etc.) you can use www.wikimapia.org to find your coordinates. Browse to your house, put the cross in the middle of the screen on your house then look at the URL for the page. The URL wil look something like this : http://www.wikimapia.org/#lat=-25.724021&lon=28.223405&z=16&l=0&m=a&v=2 in the URL you will find the coordinates after the lat and lon keywords - in this case it will be : -25.724021, 28.223405

* Click WugNet -> WugPlotter -> Add location and enter your locations details (the height input is the height above the ground that you will be able to mount an antenna)

* When your location is added you can download the google earth KML file (click WugPlotter -> Download KML) to see all the other nodes on the network, see which highsites are near you. Open the KML file with Google Earth.

* To check if you have theoretical line of sight to a highsite you can draw a LOS diagram by clicking WugPlotter -> Line of Sight Calculator and then select your location and one of the Highsites (or any other location) from the list. If the red line runs from the one node to the other without running through the black profile - your have LOS theoretically, if there are no buildings in the way

hope it helps

BOB D@ BU1LD3R,

There is potential coverage from a PWP (www.pwp.za.net) highsite, but we are still trying to get kit together to cover your area.

The coverage would come from the h4ckii node on wind.pwp.za.net, please register yourself on wind.pwp.za.net.

What kit do you have?

Can we make this a sticky so that we can direct ppl here when they ask how to plot etc? How about adding another sticky to explain what gear someone will need as we seem to get that Q ALOT! Smile
