Ack!

So I'm having problems with the DC-AC inverter in the rental vehicle here.... seems that the cigarette lighter socket isn't as deep as those in the US, so the power connector keeps popping out of the socket. No inverter means no preamp. Not good! Only found about 70 APs here in Heidelberg thus far, ...

Be afraid, I'll be in Germany from 1-6 June. Guess we're going to run neck-and-neck for 11th place for a while. :D

Re: snapshot

webmaps are a snapshot view, so the current state of the database gets grabbed when the webmap server gets restarted. this is usually once a day or so. Uhmmmmm..... you sure about this? I uploaded a huge file of about 700APs in the Corpus Christi area about a week ago. They show up with JiGLE, but ...

Re: File Parsing Back On, Database Re-arch

(edit)
We're back to realtime parsing. I'm going through the backlog of files.
Hmm, you sure?

My job 20040504-00077 appears to have hung up and died in parsing.
Just for grins, uploaded again today as 20040505-00049 and it's allegedly triangulating now. Hmmm.

What does one of those preamps run price-wise? Why don't they put in some kind of protection so it just grounds outgoing signal or something? (Said with little electronic experience) I bought my preamps at a hamfest in Sunnyvale a couple years ago, was going to use them on 2.3GHz for amateur stuff....

Preamp Correction

Correction on the Preamp specification, it's not Pacific Wireless (that's the antenna source). The RF Preamplifiers are from California Amplifier. The two preamps I predominantly use are: http://www.calamp.com/pages/pb_part.php?prt_id=51 which is a +25dB gain preamp, and http://www.calamp.com/pages/...

Amps vs preamps

Food for thought.... If you're running kismet or similar passive sniffer software which doesn't do active probing (a la netsumbler), you can use an MMDS receive preamplifier between your antenna and network card. I've got a couple of Pacific Wireless MMDS receive preamplifiers, anywhere between +15d...

Re: stumble to live live to stumble

Heh, I figured you did a lot of road time. I went to great lengths to make sure my own company APs stayed out of the database, then apparently you went driving down I-10 here in West Texas. Ohwell. :wink: ...da Ronster[/quote] Sigh, I logged in and that message still got posted as a guest. Go figure.
