Melbourne Wireless will host its first wireless convention and field day at Strathcona Baptist Grammar School, Camberwell, on Saturday, November 23.

The day will be an opportunity for anyone who is having issues with access points to come along and use the resources of Melbourne Wireless (and LUV if it's an open-source OS) to build a working group point under any operating system.

The External linkLUV website has more details including start/finish times.
