Thanks to dragorn for giving me a shout-out (or tweetout) yesterday. Now I have more motivation to actually finish this thing so I don't look like a quitter.
I'm going full steam ahead with this internet stuff and have set myself up on twitter. A few clicks and a twitter feed now shows up over on the right side of this page. Actually it took a bunch of clicks but most of them were to disable Ghostery and NoScript blocking so I could click through the twitter gadget addition process and allow the "twitter badge" to actually show up in my browser. I'm going to slow down before I go and do something totally crazy like get on facebook.
I broke out my old samsung moment the other day and installed the latest UberMoment rom by TheTehk17. The thing runs *much* better. Anyway, I got "the twitter" on it so it should be easier to post progress pictures that way. So check out the pictures in the tweets listed on the right.
Here's a few pics of what I'm calling "the mounting" progress (it's not much progress :) )
The plan is to get the radios and the LNA mounted to a small sheet of aluminum that is attached to the splitter, wire up a power harness (for ext. USB and LNA ) and get the whole thing inside some sort of box/case etc. with bulkhead connections for RF, usb, and power. We'll see.
|Holes drilled for pigtail exit to splitter (on extra hole visible due to mistake, more mistakes on the other side of the radios!)|
|$5.75 wifi sticks have no built-in RF shields. Also, pigtail in new exit hole/groove|
|Pigtail exit, finished look|
|SMA to RP-SMA adapters weren't present when I took this mock up of how things will be mounted|
