With the cooperation of the City of Richmond (thank you!), a group of volunteers and Internet Archive staff are starting to set up backbone repeaters in Richmond California to build a Community Wireless network. Here is Colyer Dupont showing a “tier 2″ dish that will then be used to repeat to the neighborhood. The equipment came from the Internet Archive, and installed on Ormond’s property by Ormond, John Easterday, and Dupont.
In the next several months as this becomes easier and the reliability is proven or improved we hope to have our first users come online.
