Nanostation M2

NOTE:  this information may be/probably is out of date. Check the Project Meshnet wikiEdit

Node Dan is a node located at Dan Ryan's home in Magnolia near the Ballard Locks. It can connect to most of Ballard, parts of Fremont & some of the islands in the Puget Sound. You can contact Dan Ryan at or on Reddit at Danry25.

Currently Node Dan has a Nanostation M5 on the roof that is connected to Node Matthew intermittenly. Long term plans include putting up a 15 foot Antenna mast at both Node Matthew & Node Dan and a conversion to Nanostation M2 radios to create a more stable link.


I peer under the Pico Peering Agreement with a modification to the Local Amendments Section of the agreement.

All Radios needed to create a link between Node Dan & another Node are to be paid for by the party that is attempting to create said connection. If the aformentioned connection becomes unreliable or otherwise untenable within 2 months of the creation of said link, the radio (if any radio was given to Node Dan for use in the link) that is used in the link will be returned to the party that attempted to create the link. After that 2 month period, the ownership of the radio will become Dan Ryan's unless otherwise agreed upon.
