We (Wireless Leiden, The Netherlands) are planning some research work
with Delft University of Technology to investigate long wifi-links. The
idea is to setup equipment at the top of their tallest building (EWI
and connect to the Wireless Antwerp node at Zierikzee , distance 40 km
(see http://nodedb.wirelessantwerpen.be/?page=nodes) and one or more of
the nodes of our network, at varying distances and height (up to 32 km
to our node near Amsterdam).
