Dear Martin,

Greetings and a Happy New year. 

The XS 0.6 is loaded on a Dell computer for the Sichuan deployment. I never been in person for Sichuan or Bhutan deployment to experience firsthand how well it work. 

I will try to see if I could get details from those who were there doing the real work.

A photo of the XS and with the Altai A3 Smart WiFi sitting on top. Heard the Wifi connection was not very stable for whatever reasons
