Solar Internet Repeater (Jan 2015)

JR is finishing up work on a months-long project installing a solar internet repeater on a ranch that, until now, had no internet access (other than cellular).   Getting out to the site was quite a feat that required use of a snowcat this time of year:

All loaded up!  Look at all that stuff!

Had to cross some nordic trails

JR put in the pole several months ago, before the ground was frozen…then began the wait for all the equipment to arrive.

Ta-daa!  Luckily it was a low-wind day!

It took another trip out on a snowmobile to get the dishes aimed properly and radios operating.  It’s hard to get everything done in a day when you are waiting for a no or low wind day, and it gets dark by 5pm!
