After weeks of preparation, four volunteers helping with the install of the repeater site and a week of testing the site with an existing member, we finally added our first "new" member to the Easley Rd antenna site. We are officially calling this antenna "Easley-East" since there are already plans in the works for Easley-West. However, at this point, Easley-East should have no problems servicing the residents that have asked for service from us. Five additional new members are scheduled for installation prior to the July 4 holiday.
This is AU Wireless' second mini-pop (or neighborhood tower). The first was added in Harmony Village. We have plans in the works to add a third mini-pop in the Mountain Ridge neighborhood later this summer. Stay tuned for details on that.
