As an engineer I was constantly faced with the old challenge of, "Do I buy it or build it?" At some breaking point DIY makes sense. Absolutely, other times it doesn't. The phrase, "Why buy it for $10 when you can build it for $100?" was unfortunately true in some cases. We learned the hard way not to be focused on one solution to the exclusion of the other.

Can we have a show of hands, who has hired professional wireless installers to survey and map out a church building, then perform the installation? (I'm not being facetious, I'm very much interested in others experiences as well.)
