Thanks!  The process of tightening everything down seems to have knocked the alignment out just a bit (The signal strength dropped to about -84dbm).   So I think we should be more solid once I can get back up on the roof top and fine tune.   At 40 miles link distance the aim needs to be just right...

Congrats on the link!  You may be the first to use that Canada site
    from the USA!  Welcome to international packet smuggling.  :)
 PS: I do notice your link is off now.  I hope everything's OK.

Hello all,

We put up our first HamWAN connection today at Cape
                George (Port Townsend) WA for the Jefferson County
                Amateur Radio Club (W7JCR).  The client configuration
                instructions on the http://hamwan.org site worked

Link is 40.2 mi.  -74dbm connected to Triangle Sector 2. 

                a 2ft dish (30dbi) and radio is Basebox 5 International, RB912UAG-5HPnD-OUT 

Radio is on a rooftop 30ft above ground with clear
                LOS to Victoria and Triangle.

73 John, W0JCM
