Wonderful to see systems from around the world, and even up in the arctic circle !
I took the low tech approach, keeping with materials laying around. This was because:
A. I wanted to get the system running right away.
B. I wanted friends of mine to see how easy Outernet is with this kit. The Outernet kit is for all, not only for 'Ubertechies.

Did it work? Oooooooh, yes!
I'll use these pictures to make the point that this is a very viable way to reach the world's population with information, education and friendship building.
Now.time for the upgrade - The new "radome" is a U.S. brand 'Hefty' gasketed, locking food container. 'Radome, Mk 2.0"
