Plotted as Skyview Castle.
At the petrol station on William Nicol / R511 just after the turn for Hartbeespoort.

LOS tested OK on the web site to Raslouw, Wierda Park, Wierda Mall, and Mnandi.
A bit dubious about Mnandi. It's plotted as 11m high, but from what I remember from the wiki it was not that high and quite a bit of trees around.

Can be a HS for Doornrandje, Laezonia, and Gerardsville. There are a few plotted temporary nodes in the KML file.

LOS to the north-west and west of JHB too.
LOS tested OK on the web site to SirCastle, West Point, ZS6BJU, and Northcliff.

I'm happy to sponsor RB, 1 grid, 1 omni for the HS plus 1 grid for the HS that it will connect to.

Will go again, on Tuesday probably as the manager won't be there on Monday, to take photos from the ground and check roof access. There is apparently no access to the roof from inside and it's about 7 meters high.
Someone has a plan if we must get there from outside?

Hey Secret Turnip

You can revisit this now, since there is a Mancom In place again Smile

If you are still interested.

Hi Secret Turnip.

Any progress with the high point? I stay in broadacres/fourways and I don't have LOS to any other high sites, other than cable view which is 33km's away.

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Guys,

I have some Wug equipment. It is all installed and ready to connect. How would we go about getting this started again, or is it currently operational?

Cheers

Iain

Also looking to hookup to a highsite. I'm in Gerardsville.
Will try and connect my EQ and see what signal I can pickup from my location. I have some people in the village looking for a hookup too, but I need a sector, which I still have to source.
Also still need to get the pole and brackets. Going to put up a 6m pole and hookup my kit.
Then hopefully get the relevant people to answer when I need access.
