AirTalk.net successfully brings cell reception and internet to remote hunting spot
AirTalk.net headed back to Kentucky last week to install and network the equipment necessary to bring a beautiful, remote hunting area online.
On our first trip to do the site inspection, senior engineer Tracy Markham found a weak signal high above the camp. The property owners wanted a strong cell signal that could also bring in internet at the lodge and certain spots on the hunting property. Tracy had a 60 ft. retractable tower strategically placed on the property to mount the Wilson antennas, which would boost the cellular reception.
Meanwhile, Tracy assembled other equipment on a panel in a box to amplify the signal. When we arrived, he first installed those high up on the tower, along with another antenna to send the WiFi signal to a recreation location further down the mountain. Once that was all up and the cables were run down the tower and through a trench to the first building, another equipment panel was installed inside the building. He added panel antennas to emit the boosted cell signal to the grounds around the first building, the fire pit area and another building further up the hill.
Employees and guests of the hunting camp can now surf the web at three main gathering locations throughout the camp. They are also thrilled to now be able to make cell phone calls where they were not able to before the AirTalk.net Wireless system was installed.
A hunting lodge will eventually be built further down the mountain on the riverfront. AirTalk.net will return to Kentucky when construction is underway and the site is ready to have the cell signal booster and internet installed.
