For an experiment to stream video I connected a camera to the RaspberryPi whose images are only shown on HamNet.
It's the well known RaspberryPi camera module version V2.1 and we'll see what the results are on Hamnet.
No guarantee that the camera is always on.
Unfortunately, the Ubiquiti stoped during my vacation. No power led, no connection, nothing at all. The POE was oké, so the problem had to be in the antenna itself.
Fortunately, it appeared to be easy to open it. The front cover is very easy to remove, it is only snaped on the base and sealed with a small amount of (silicone) kit.
Although I have no examples, I do not think it's very waterproof in the long run.
I do not know why the Ubiquiti has gone. The PCB is not visibly affected by water, but that is of course no guarantee.
It happened during my vacation, so a user error is excluded :-)
I know, is not in the spirit of a "real" radio amateur, but for now I have to use the good old VPN connection again.
For 18 months I was not very happy with the fact that I could no longer connect to HamNet over the air. Eventually I made the
decision to buy a new WiFi device again and to establish a connection with the Gerbrandy tower AP. It has become a MikroTik
27 DBi gain and a built-in router. I also purchased a MikroTik RB750R2 router for expansion in the future.
A setup with lots of possibilities and as many problems to overcome. With the help of Rob, PE1CHL (HamNet expert) we managed
to get everything on track. It is a very instructive project with plenty of opportunities and challenges.
