Students Send WiFi Signal 125 Miles

Team PAD broke their own record—55 miles—yesterday by shooting a WiFi signal 125 across the arid wastes around Las Vegas aka The Las Vegas Suburbs. They used 12- and 10-foot satellite dishes to send a 12Mbps to St. George, Utah and were able to run SSH, VNC, and ping with reckless abandon.

Now, if someone is between those two dishes and picks up the signal, does that make them data thieves? Probably, according to the numerous intelligent police officers on the WiFi beat around the country.
