The Deliverator – Wannabee

So open minded, my thoughts fell out…

Improved war-driving

Posted by Deliverator on July 30th, 2005

Purchased a 7 db omni with a 10′ cable for the car-puter on Ebay. It should be here in about a week. The three 5.5 db omni’s that I own (MMCX, MC-Card and N-connector) all have cables that are too short to reach from the center of the roof to under the seat. This wasn’t a problem in the past, because with the USB Orinoco adapter, I could move the radio closer to the antenna connector. For now, I am mounting the 5.5 db omni closer to the roof edge in order to allow the existing cable to reach. I took a brief jaunt around Bellevue this evening to beat the heat and war-drove along the way. The Senao definitely picks up a lot more than the Orinoco ever did. I logged 542 AP’s in about 30 minutes of driving.
