This should update once per day for a while: http://www.drhleny.cz/smokeping/

A textual map is below. I use channels 1, 6 and 11 to segment things. My biggest problem is on channel 1, where I have two repeaters hanging off of one gateway.

First I’ll try to get cabins 12 and 20 on separate gateways / channels, which will be a challenge with the line-of-sight situation and only three non-overlapping channels. If it isn’t enough, I'll see if I can get anything else cabled or backhauled with 5 GHz. Thanks for the ideas!

CH 1:

ServiceEast sees:
- Cabin12 -69
- Cabin20 -62

Cabin12 sees:
- ServiceEast -66 (gateway)
- Cabin20 -72

Cabin20 sees:
- ServiceEast -62 (gateway)
- Cabin12 -72

CH 6:

ServiceWest sees:
- Cabin28 -50

Cabin28 sees:
- ServiceWest -49 (gateway)

Office sees nothing

CH 11:

Reception sees:
- CabinA1 -68

CabinA1 sees:
- Reception -68 (gateway)
