Test 17

Test site 2 to Devonshire Rd farm

Base 44.37996N -65.0064W antenna height 14m, no trees.

Mobile 44.3639N -65.0854W antenna height 6.5m, 20m trees 100m from antenna

The longest link to date with a minor obstruction at 2.5km, due to our limited antenna height and the nature of the terrain with a lot of low rolling hills it is hard to get longer links in our tests.

The link according to Google Earth link distance 6.52km, elevation and foliage below.

KML File that opens in Google Earth is available for those wishing to take a detailed look at the terrain and vegetation
