At Elm & Coler, a two story house, though it's surrounded by buildings
taller than it. At Elm & Busey, also a two story, but with much better
"visibility". In both cases, I expect to get roof access, but will try
to confirm with landlords this week.

It would be preferable (cheaper) to have our Internet "feed" at Elm &
Busey, though this has the disadvantage of being farther from current
nodes. Is there any chance that by placing the node at Elm & Coler
instead we could reach current nodes? If so, then instead of paying
for our own Internet feed we could contribute to pay for the CUW's
