Dayton Hamvention 2016

The Miami Valley Mesh Alliance is making plans for a mesh presence at the Dayton Hamvention, May 20-22.  We will have a booth as last year, with a mesh network covering the Flea Market and much of the inside exhibit space.  All meshers are invited to support and participate in this event.  Volunteer opportunities are available to work at the booth and to demonstrate mesh applications.  If you plan to attend and would like to participate, OR... if you have ideas, suggestions, or concerns you would like to share, please contact us at  Bill Curtice, WA8APB

Hi Darryl,

To answer your question about using ch -2 at Hamvention; the answer is definitely yes!!

We likely will have a Ch +1 access point at our booth to support visitors with Linksys equipment.  However, I expect all else to be on Ch -2 at 10 MHz.  We see no need to field anything on 5.8 GHz this year.  

We recently migrated all primary 2.4 GHz nodes in our local mesh to Ch -2 @ 10 MHz.... and the performance improvement has been spectacular.  We now have nodes with useable links (in terms of LQ, and transmission rates).... that could not even see each other on Ch +1.  Existing links have all improved.  We are starting to re-think the need for 5.8 (or 3.4 GHz) backbone links between some nodes.  Hopefully.... this improvement will hold as our trees leaf out.

Many thanks for Ch -2 (AND for the exclusive channels on 5.8 and 3.4) !!

YAY! Hope to see you there!

This is my first year going to Hamvention... Hope to see you there! I'll look for the booth. I'll also try to have a node going in my automobile (& room) as well.

Most of our activity is to

Most of our activity is to the East and Southeast of Dayton.  So far at least.  We just put up a node near I-675 and Wilmington Pike at the Hospital.  There are some hotels near there.
