Pretty Mary Lake Link

This 14km long link is an example of how we could bring internet service into remote under served areas.

The link is from Tefler hill Caledonia to a low open hill near Pretty Mary Lake our antenna heights are 85ft at Tefler hill and 20ft at Pretty Mary Lake.

The link had to overcome considerable vegetation that would stop any other technology but was considerably aided by a clear open reception site, a blueberry field ideal for our purposes.

The TVWS equipment established a link with a throughput of 8Mbps TCP using a single 6Mhz channel and is an example of the weak signal performance, calculations based on our data indicate that using 4 channels together with a 15m height and higher gain antennas link speeds in excess of 25Mbps should be possible.

In this particular area there are 3 year round under-served houses and a number of seasonal houses that could be served with such a link at relatively low cost compared to other alternatives.
