This blog will chronicle my quest to provide my parents with a telecommunications link on the farm where they live. It is only about 10 km from town, but it is in a valley separated from town by mountains, and they have no cellphone reception and no telephone line. I plan to put up a high site on a mountain close to them to enable them to connect to the internet via an ADSL point in town. The high site has line of sight to town and to them. There is also another house on the farm that is interested in getting internet access, so they will be the second client to use the link.
