Node Naming Conventions

We are encouraging users to use a common naming convention when naming devices on the local mesh network. This will help others identify your node and pass along some useful information about your installation.

Here is an example for my node at my office downtown is:


This breaks down to:

K6BPM -> my callsign. Always comes first.
DLV -> something to ID this node. In this case DLV stands for De La Vina
NSM2 -> the type of equipment, a Nanostation M2
N60 -> the direction it is pointing North and the radiation pattern is 60° (standard for a NSM2)

So my link will show up as http://K6BPM-DLV-NSM2-N60.local.mesh on the node status page.
