Reminds me of these :) BytEfLUSh (talk) 00:17, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

It would be nice to check to see if this SSID exists already (using, Combain Positioning Service, Google location services, Wiggle, etc.). Could also be interesting to track use of this SSID over time. Of course takes a while for any changes to show up in the search engines. 02:17, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Is there a way to make a query out of a URL? 14:45, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Soon those names will be e.g. "StarLink_6514". ;) Fabian42 (talk) 09:46, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Could the 46UHZ be a reference to the frequency band, i.e. 5GHz? Maybe this WiFi network was originally configured to operate on an unknown-to-us 46μHz band. 18:49, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

46 microHz would be in the submarine communications area. Unlikely to exist on a mountain top.

I live in the middle of the forest, even in the winter when there are no leaves to block the way there's only one house even within sight, and yet there are five 802.11* networks in my scan right now. I mean, they're all mine, but still...—Kazvorpal (talk) 23:09, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

"a character with a knit cap is on top of a high mountain in a remote location. He sees" How do we know that Knit Cap is a "he"? We don't, actually . . . . 12:19, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
