Hack Rock City container

For 2015 we bought a shipping container from BRC and set it up as a mobile hacker space.

During the event it serves as an all weather space to repair and work on projects. We have soldering stations, oscilloscopes, amateur radios, spare parts, etc.

We have 2.4 GHz wifi backhaul mounted on the roof, as well as a 2m/440/6m antenna for our base station radio. For 2016 we are considering using the DMR radios like the ones that Travis Goodspeed has been hacking.

During the rest of the year it holds twenty some bikes, a fridge, tents, clothing, etc, etc, etc.
