It’s been a heck of a ride so far, from the beginnings of looking for a better way to find lost paraglider pilots all the way out to being featured by Helium as a top hotspot optimization expert.
Travis Teague and I just did an episode of the Uplink, which Helium releases to showcase how the community is developing. A very cool show to do and a real honor.
We went through the genesis story of of the Kiwi SAR, through the first hotspot and my experiences building DIY hotspots back when the alpha code program was still open. That includes a few mountain deployments, a few urban deployments, a few suburban deployments and more consults with rad folks like you than I can count.
Here’s the video:
While I aim to make enough information freely available so you can go through this blog (and the rest of the internet) and figure out how to optimally deploy your hotspot, if you’d like help with
- Maximizing the opportunity to earn HNT with a well placed and well set up hotspot
- Deciding whether or not it’s the right time to jump
- Figuring out what the next step is in the Helium network
Please consider hiring me to help you out. I’ll put all of my knowledge and experience at your disposal to make sure you make the best of what you can and don’t miss any big opportunities. No matter what you decide, I wish you the best of luck with your Helium journey, and I can’t wait to see what you do with it!
