Next on the roadmap: getting the first 2 (two) gateways online.
Bucharest has a lot of areas full of rather tall buildings. Many are 9-storey (or more) high, built of reinforced concrete. The metal meshes within the walls could affect seriously the signal propagation.
So, for now we need to experiment a bit, to see how the gateways behave in such an environment.
How many gateways are needed to get full coverage of the city?
The first active gateways will help answer this questions.
So, these first gateways will be DIY ones, as shown on GitHub.
The components have arrived, fire-up time coming soon!
