All great ideas! Thanks very much.

I think I’m in a black hole around North Bay because of the lack of repeaters. You see them crisscrossing Hwy. 11, but there’s about an hour there where there are none, and that’s where I am!

I would use the 3g phone option, but I’m trying to figure out how to use this with a couple other people and the 2 gigs a month would definitely go over. And I would like to try to keep it as a semi-permanent set-up which make my phone more of a communal router than it ought to be (for now anyways).

I’ll check out these Yaggi antennas with a booster. I’m thinking I’m not too far out of range, but I’ll try taking it one step at a time.

Can I add an antenna after the fact, or do I have to size the whole system for it’s use.

Thanks for the advice!
