I would like to say hello to the list and introduce myself. Excuse me
for taking up your time.

I'm a local activist in the Swedish Pirate Party in a small town in
Sweden called Södertälje.

I'm currently involved in a project that aims to send up a baloon with
a wifi router (openWRT) as high up in the atmosphere as possible. The
wifi-router will have a somewhat better antenna to test how far
connectivity can be achieved.

The second goal for this baloon is be modified to survive for a very
long time, fully operational on its own, powered by solar panels and
drifting by the wind only.

On-board, we are currently investigating the olsrd software as coming
along, aswell as a small website. The intention is to provide a
network connection to all that can reach the baloon with wifi.

Ideally, "the baloon" also provides "old internet" access but we don't
know currently if this is achievable by the use of olrsd. We haven't
tried out olsr out enough yet to know exactly how this could be done.

Anyway, if you think that this is something interesting. We are happy
to get in contact with people that are experienced in setting up olsrd
in such a way that it is easy to let users (novice ones) join it with
as little effort as possible.

Thanx for your time! Hope to hear from you.
