My rural place like any others have signal problems, the nearest towers are not  near enough to provider stable signal when people are moving about. You phone someone who is standing or seating, the moment they answer they start moving about even for no reason.

Im tempted to build it myself but any infor is welcome:

Do l need license from protaz

Costs of equipment locally

im thinking of powering it with solar, any ideas on this

it should be multi-telco relay base

My research so far have shown that most telco in afrika are using the 2.5 and 3.5GHz channels which are licensed.

A way around it might be for me to try and use unlicensed WiMax as a back-hauling(connection between my relay  and telco signal tower). But this will require to find out or talk a telco into enabling such signal on their towers.  This will now put the challenge of what to use as access band to try and reduce interference between the two.

I will continue to update as l research...
