Have you found a source for the Minitar boards? I didn't look to hard, but
the Australian page on had sources in Australia.
It's a tough call, the original appeal to me of the WRAP is that it is about
half the cost of a Soekris. Cheap is a good thing. The cheaper it is the
more we can get deployed which helps us in terms of creating a denser mesh.
If we could build a complete box for $100 or less that would be way cool.
If we can find a source for the Minitar I'll buy one or two to play with.
I'm also going to buy a WRAP they're available.
