Four young amateur radio operators from Ohio were again dubbed world
champs of long-distance wireless networking at the annual DefCon WiFi
Shootout. These guys more than doubled the 55.1 mile record they set
last year. Way to go!
All day Friday and through the night Team PAD
braved rain, lightning and winds over 30 mph to setup and test their
equipment at their mountaintop base outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. On
Saturday July 30 at 11am they successfully made a 125 mile link using
802.11b and ran network applications with their remote team in the
mountains West of St. George, Utah.
