In the beginning it was just to be connected to the CTWUG but I found this was not enough. I have learnt a lot from the CTWUG experience and would like to pass this onto other people as well. This node was setup in November 2011 with the main goal of getting more wuggers to join in the CTWUG community. Currently trying to get two backbone links running and also got a 5.8GHz sector for clients to connect to. Of course if you are thinking of connecting to this node please note the idea is to expand and create more links, hence i hope the connectees will follow course.

KM, KMSquare, AirWolf and most of Goodwood area form a community within the CTWUG called the KM Group.
