Harvestore WISP Install

Over the years many MidWestern WISPS have fashioned ways to use Harvestore silos for broadcast locations. With the help of one of our good clients, who did most of the work designing this, we were able to install a very solid structure on the top of a silo.

Please note. These photos were taken before wiring and final touches were installed. The backhaul dishes all need tie-backs to help prevent them from twisting in the wind. This was the biggest thing not shown in the photos.

My first wireless enclosure

This “enclosure” was my first attempt at being a Wireless ISP with no budget. The problem I was trying to solve was putting a waverider Subscriber module on top of a 150 grain leg. The Waverider unit was designed for indoor use. You would mount the unit indoors and then run hardline out to your antenna. In our use case, the 160 foot run of hardline would have caused too much loss.

So before you is the solution. We put an APC battery backup, netgear dumb switch, and a few POEs inside a cooler. A hole was then drilled in the side to pass ethernet and power cables through. This hole was then foamed and further sealed with silicone. This lasted for many years.
