[MLB-WIRELESS] Mounting an AP on a tree

I've got a 12 slot waveguide mounted about 10m off the ground. To mount 
it I just got a 1m length of galvanized water pipe, some saddle clamps 
and some big roofing bolts for timber beams. It's as solid as a rock, 
but it does tend to sway around a bit with the tree when it's windy so I 
don't think using a directional antenna would be a good idea!

It's been there in various forms for the better part of 4 years now. 
Just make sure you climb up and inspect it every 12 months or less. As 
the tree grows it seems to have a habit of snapping bolts sometimes.
