    77I am using a USB GPS dongle and the required packages for it are gpsd and its dependencies.  For the python script to be able to communicate with gpsd, we will need the python-gps package as well.  The names of the data files created use the current date and time, so as the current file stands, we will need the dateutil python package also.

     14Next you should open the script in a text editor and look at the global variable and constants.  There are options to execute scans for the RSSI values and/or iperf tests.  The output to those tests are put in separate directories under the file names based on the current date and time.  As it stands, these are the current variables and Constants:
