  @tekwrite Go to the App Store on your android and download "Wifi Analyzer".   

Add the next satellite Deco Node to the mesh, while you are near the Main Deco node.

Then using your phone to map out the signal from your Main Deco node.

When the signal drops below -55dBm, then that is a spot to place a satellite Deco Node.  Don't go below -60dBm, that may be too far.

After the new satellite Deco node is up, rename it for the new location.  

Then move on to the next.

 

Good Luck
