The hackers convention is holding its first wi-fi shootout with the aim of shooting wi-fi signals the longest distance between the roof of the Alexis Park Hotel and the outlying areas of Las Vegas without relaying. Categories of competition include using "non-modified", "homemade" and, "enhanced" wi-fi gear.

"The Guinness World Book of Records distance for a wi-fi link is 310 kilometers, and was set by the Swedish company Alvarion"
