  1. Using a balloon as an antenna?

    That's interesting. I have seen this to be a problem before. And the quality of the suppressors can play a big role in it as well.
  2. Best Password Manager?

    I have heard good things about KeePass. Used it some and seems to be user friendly after playing around with it for a few minutes. But there are many good options

    Could mod it to have 11 radios. Would be kind of costly tho.. Might just have to do it for the fun of it!
  4. Using a balloon as an antenna?

    @barry99705 so sounds like more of a lightning strike on the network or power line? Its no fun and you always wonder if you will see more damage days later to equipment not totally cooked by the strike. I always recommend some sort of strike suppression device on feed lines from towers/masts. One local ISP will install strike suppressors at the interface box if you request it.

    @barry99705 Like the pictures. Looks like it was a pretty cool project!
  6. Using a balloon as an antenna?

    Whatever gets the job done. Looks like some nice little mast poles! I wouldn't worry to much about lightning especially if you have grounded them. Proper mast grounding can make it almost "invisible" to lightning hugely reducing your chances of a strike, but it is still possible.
  7. Using a balloon as an antenna?

    I have used 30 ft of 1 in pvc before with no issue as long as you support it on the side of a house, barn, etc. for a quick temporary test with a very small antenna. I have once seen someone actually use 4 in pvc for a permanent mast at around 25 ft but wouldn't necessary recommend it. I would agree with you free standing to use metal conduit but like you said both are only for testing, not anything permanent. Was just some ideas. Good, cheap mast pole if you can find some is old oil field pipe or well casing.
  8. Using a balloon as an antenna?

    @thedeadhand54 I would recommend the quadcopter option as well if possible. The weather balloon could be tricky to do an accurate test, especially if there is any wind that would cause it to drift one direction. You could also by cheap pvc pipe to hoist it into the air temporarily for testing then you would know what kind of tower height you are looking at as well. You could use 1" sch 40 pvc that is only a few dollars per 10 ft joint but this would probably be limited to 20-30 ft tall and still be able to hold it. How high of a tower are you thinking?

    Thanks everyone for the great info.

    Thanks for all the responses! @Yakamashii Im sure we could work something out to get you one @bashincajun I plan to keep the thread updated as changes are made. First will probably be smaller enclosure followed by the battery pack.
  11. Change out USB to USB-C for LAN Turtle

    I would try this first. I thing the chip for USB-C is different than previous USB. So it would require more than just a connector. Not saying it can't be done tho.

    @BLAMM0 His answer is pretty much spot on. @digip

  14. Wireless Outdoor Camera Suggestions

    Thanks for all the info. Powering the cameras wont be an issue. Have looked into trenching Ethernet out to the location but not looking cost effective at this point. Looking at setting up a wireless bridge so could have the ability to use wired IP cameras then bridge the connection back to the main router. Looking at possibly an AP with external antenna connections to give flexibility for directional antennas. We have a r7000 router now with stock antennas that actually seems to have decent signal strength at the location but haven't actually tested the quality. Might go with @Dave-ee Jones suggestion. Cameras look to be nice and have nice features for easy use.

    @flok I must have misread your question. I understand what your asking now. I would recommend what @digip posted. I'm pretty sure Airgeddon does fake/poisoned dns by default but I'm not completely sure, haven't used it in a while. I have noticed the same thing as @digip mentioned about cellphones. I haven't tested many apple phones but it seems android phones can act in several different ways depending on version when using Airgeddon.
