Dear battlemeshers,

in the past few weeks, we have had internal discussions in the recon team
regarding the venue for the upcoming Wireless Battle Mesh 6.  After intensely
investigating the very interesting proposals available, most of our 8 recon
members eventually voted for Aalborg/Denmark to be the venue for our next
battle. The main arguments for Denmark were:

 * They have started proposing to host WBM since WBMv4/SBG, and were part
   since then - they know how WBM works.
 * We had a lot of people asking for "more serious testing", and
   Martin Hundebøll and his Prof Frank Fitzek gave us the impression
   that they have quite some experience in professional test setups.
 * These guys organized quite a lot of bigger conferences, and also
   the proposal covers nearly all questions regarding organization.

Of course, it was not easy for us to decide, because as you certainly have
seen, Michel also had this very good proposal to host WBMv6 in Formentera.
We have talked to Michel and I'm glad to say that he supports our decision
regarding the WBMv6 venue and also offered help to get this going.

We also discussed the possibility to have an intermediate event in Formentera
(like WBMv5.5) this year, with a specific project to be achieved by
participants. Some ideas were:

 * Solar (battery less) beach WiFi deployment
 * Testbed using existing local test deployment
 * GPL device controller

But any proposition is welcome.

Our next step is to go to Denmark for a reconnaissance mission in autumn
this year. We will keep you updated!

        Simon - on behalf of the recon team
