The graph values include only wireless links
local, plus remote links via Internet tunneling.



This Google Chart requires Internet access by my Raspberry Pi. If the chart here is missing, that suggests my RPi is having troubles accessing the Internet, or I have messed up something. Sorry!

Map a profile of the signal path between two antennas
(http://www.heywhatsthat.com)

Suggested tips for mapping a profile at heywhatsthat.com:
  1) Drag lower right corner of map to enlarge it.
  2) Click or enter locations. (Hint: Drag existing "+" symbols.)
  3) Click altitude link for each entry, and enter adjustment for antenna height above ground level, e.g., +30.
  4) Click "Parameters" below the profile image. Enter "2400" for Frequency. (This reveals the Fresnel zone.)
  5) View path profile (clear or blocked), and bearing/range to second station.
  6) Click "Clear" or "Backspace" to remove/change locations.
Tip: Use Satellite View to see obstructions (trees, buildings, etc) or tall objects helpful for antenna aiming.
