Remote Solar Powered Radio Data Logging

I finally have put together a solar powered, remote (via radio) data logging platform to finally start getting some basic data in, where I want it.

I built it using Sockit Box, a Sodaq board, a XBee Series 2 radio, 2 temperature sensors, and a moisture sensor.

First I marked out where I needed to drill for the antenna to pop out.

Drill the hole. In this case a 1/4 inch hole.
