9-11 April, 2019 | Measurements in Fjällen

On April 9-11 we did radio measurements to get a picture of how we can build better coverage along the trail between the Pårte-Aktse cottage. We looked especially at the boat route used by hikers along the Kungsleden trail on this route. We measured the current radio coverage against Telia's mast (Seitevare) and we tried to set up our own radio base (which provides local mobile telephony in this measurement case not connected to the outside world) to find a suitable place to create radio coverage along the hiking path AND have contact between radio base and Telia's mast.

2. Economy, models and value chains: analysis of engineering economic areas, operator models and other aspects

3. Project Demonstration: show that the project is doable and evaluate afterwards
