I am unfortunately a little late to the Helium (HNT) mining party. I just completed my first deployment and have 4 more in the works. My first miner Future Pine Dove sat in the window for about a month while awaiting its antenna and additional equipment. Today, 04/09/2022, I put up an external antenna and I am starting off with an 8dBi but may drop that to 5.8 depending on how it performs.
I moved the Sensecap from wifi to ethernet in this process and updated my port forwards but at this time the miner is showing as relayed in the explorer app but hotspotty.net and the Sensecap app both say it isn't relayed. Relaying won't matter either after the next network update.
Want to connect or have suggestions for this setup? Either comment below or send a message. All input, feedback, or other requests are welcome. I also have an additional 4 hotspots with tentative hosts but if you are in the Myrtle Beach, Little River, or Longs, SC area and interested in hosting please let me know.
