- Bunch of RJ45 connectors
- Bunch of grounded RJ45 connectors
Antennas and pigtails
We have a bunch of high-gain omnis, a bunch of dish (the grid type) antennas, and a few panel antennas. Most of these are N connectors. We need to go through them, check frequency and tag them with frequency.
We have a bunch of u.fl to male N pigtails.
We have a bunch of GPS antennas.
Tools for node-mounting
- One foldable woodworking table (like this)
- One decent RJ45 crimper (blue handle) with somewhat worn out cutting blades
- 2x low quality RJ45 crimpers (green handle). Probably OK for crimping but not for cutting or stripping.
- A set of screwdrivers, wire cutter, tongs, and other basic hand tools.
- Makita impact driver (battery powered)
- Makita drill (battery powered)
- Makita battery charger
- 3x Makita batteries
- Two ethernet cable testers (need batteries)
Consumables for node-mounting
TODO put stuff like mounting brackets, plumbers tape, screws, silicone, hose clamps, cable staples.
- 3x One Laptop Per Child XO Laptop (one power supply)
- Lots of other stuff that needs.
Less than useful stuff
- A bunch of random indoor routers that don't support OpenWRT
- A bunch of random indoor routers that do support modern OpenWRT but no two are alike
- A great big stack of the original blue linksys routers. These only support old versions of OpenWRT.
