AREDN Receives Grant from Yasme Foundation

The AREDN Project was recently honored by the Yasme Foundation with the award of a $7000 grant for the purchase of a 20 GHz spectrum analyzer.  The analyzer will be used to understand the characteristics of 802.11 protocols in the unique, long-distance mesh, configurations of AREDN implementations.  It will also afford us the ability to measure, and perhaps, improve the quality of transmissions emanating from AREDN-supported devices.

The AREDN Project team is grateful to the Yasme Foundation for taking the time to consider its need for a spectrum analyzer.  Andre Hansen, K6AH, in speaking for the entire team said, “To be awarded this grant is particularly gratifying for us because it acknowledges the value the AREDN Project affords Amateur Radio.”

The Yasme Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation organized to support scientific and educational projects related to amateur radio. Their support includes long distance communication (DXing), the introduction and promotion of amateur radio in developing nations and encouraging youth participation in amateur radio.

AREDN® Ambassadors

The AREDN® team is pleased to announce the start of a new program to recognize people who are actively contributing to spreading the word about how hams can use our 21st century mesh networking technology to provide high-speed data communications when disasters strike.

We call these special people “AREDN® Ambassadors”.

These are key members of our community who:

  • Perform a significant amount of testing to help us verify new features and bug fixes and uncover new flaws.
  • Improve feature sets
  • Identify new equipment which extends our supported platforms
  • Donate their time and effort to building and operating mesh networks
  • Promote the AREDN® Project through presentations to clubs and hamfests
  • Engage local government, hospitals and other served agencies in discussions about how hams can provide 21st century solutions to emergency communications needs
  • Constantly improve their networking skills
  • Commit to support and advise local hams about methods to build successful networks
  • Develop new applications and uses for an AREDN® mesh network

We are proud to announce our first group of AREDN® Ambassadors. They are:

Orv Beach, W6BI
Mark Herson, N2MH
Karen Herson, KD2KHJ

Congratulations to each of you!

Automated Mesh Map

Our resident network mapper and AREDN developer Eric KG6WXC just published a page describing his mapping program. His Automated Mesh Map allows hobbyists who have experience in Linux/Apache/SQL to collaborate while gaining metrics in their desired nodes. It has a become a “go to” tool for monitoring the status of the networks. Groups who start setting up their own AREDN Networks also get a copy of the map to monitor their progress.
You can get all the details on his page at SkySilk Cloud Services User Spotlight.
