Wifi relay station

We set up a wifi relay in Nayeli (the village on the ridge above Lweshal). A pipe set in concrete and bolted to the wall bears a 100W solar panel and a housing for a 90Ah battery (not visible here), as well as two wifi routers. The lower device (a Ubiquiti AirGrid M5) is pointed at our rooftop, some 800m away. The upper device (Ubiquiti PowerBeam M5) is pointed at a relay in Sitla (about 5km away), operated by our friendly not-quite-neighbourhood ISP AirJaldi. The house belongs to a helpful neighbour.
