So at that moment there were two handsets on control channels at distances of roughly 7.5 km and 4.0 km, they were both transmitting at 2 W and the channels were error-free. Not bad for a prototype. We will try to do a software update later this evening to make the task of provisioning a little easier for the Telecom staff and continue to monitor performance as conditions allow.
And Tim's Xorcom box finally arrived, even though Tim himself is back in the UK. Installation has been a little more hairy than expected, but it is happening. When that is complete, Telecom Niue will be able to connect calls between OpenBTS and their wireline switch, which is one more step toward a public mobile network.
Yes, there are still problems and loose ends. This is a test network and nobody expects everything to be perfect at this point. We understand the problems. We have a plan. It might take a few weeks for everything to come together, but it will happen.
There are plenty of technical details that I'm leaving out for now. All of that will be released when it is ready. For now, I want to thank the people who have supported this project, especially Taiichi, Frank and the people at Telecom Niue and in the government. We look forward to working with you all as this project moves forward. And I thank those people of Niue who have show patience and offered kind words, because I know you outnumber those few who were cursing and blaming. Faka'aue lahi. We will do our best for you.
