    I am looking at setting up a budget wireless community network with a
    few neighbors up to about 1200 ft away ( but there are trees and
    houses in the way ) . My budget is very tight and really would like
    to use low cost off the shelf equipment with the highest power
    possible and homebuilt antennas . Would it be better to use muliple
    repeaters or the 200mw equipment offered by Senao / Engentius or SMC (
    you can usually find better price deals on SMC) or will I need both .
    I know that this sound odd but what is the best was to test before
    buying everything ( ie . Would a 2.4 ghz DSS ( waht is typical power
    ?) cordless phone give me an idea of what to expec ) ?
