The meeting / seminar / conference room at IN-Berlin is located on ground floor and has windows facing east.
In front of those windows is a road + sidewalk which is directly in north-south direction,
i.e. it may be possible to set up some (GPS, Thuraya, etc.) antennas on the sidewalk, if required.
Some kind of pole+stand is required, though.
