Anybody know of a good PTZ IP camera with a very long lens for a reasonable price? I really like the pics and want to be able to have them live.

Well Broadband is not available at my house (no DSL or Cable) so I am stuck with Satellite Broadband (Which SUCKS). Both DSL and Cable are available 1/2 mile away. I am going to put up a 24 DBi Parabolic Grid Antenna 2.4 GHz 24 dBi Die-cast Grid Antennas connected to a Wrt54Gl Linksys by Cisco Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54GL Runing tomato Tomato Firmware | polarcloud.com (which allows usage as a wireless client + site survey). From there I SHOULD be able to see several peoples WiFi's and attempt to make some finical agreement for services.

That's all on hold right now because I have lost my WRT54GL Err.

I have failed at connecting to an existing Access point :-(

Now in negotiations with a neighbor to upgrade his Access point and add a 14 DBI Panel antenna.

You need to put a Whisper 100 at the top of that. :-)

That sucks, nice pic though.

Seriously, a half mile and that setup couldn't see it? You were pointing down 1.3 degrees?

This guy was connected at 1.2 miles with just a cantenna on one end (though I am quite certain I am not telling you anything you don't know already)

I'd like to unfortunately I need to put my TV antenna on top of the tower (rotates) and that more or less eliminates the use of horizontal axis turbine.

Now if anybody knows of a turbine that doesn't have to be at the "top" or a nice omni directional TV antenna (i'd rather an omni tv antenna); then I'm all game.

However I am only 0-3 feet above a tree whose top is only 30 feet away; im fairly certain that it would hurt my output pretty substantially. Now if I get my hands on some more scrapyard (nearly free) tower sections then I have a GREAT spot for a wind turbine :-)
