I've seen urls where folks set up 10-20 mile 802.11b links. The
biggest catch seems to be that the antennas and lead-in cables are
still priced like industrial items.
If some of the San Francisco Bay area folks want to try setting up a
link, I might be game. I've got a clear shot to much of the south bay
from my roof. (I can also dig some other URL's if there is a general
interest in this sort of thing. With high-speed ISP's closing shop
and filing chapter 11 on a daily basis around here it might be nice to
have a fall-back connection.)
