What’s On Board: Greenpeace’s Arctic Sunrise

A description of how this Greenpeace ship was Wi-Fi enabled. Somehow I missed this article before, it even got slashdotted.
“In the crows nest is a wireless bridge, there is the option to switch from an omni to a directional Vagi (not Yagi) antenna, should the host be far away. That runs to a switch in the radio room. Also running there is a standard 802.11b AP used by the crew and anyone else who wants to check their Email in the proximity of the moored vessel.”
