​AREDN Project Announces Strategic Changes

AREDN forms a non-profit corporation to ensure continuity

The project saw the need for more formal governance and as a result, took the strategic step of organizing as a non-profit corporation.  This will help protect the user-community investments in mesh networking by setting up the framework for long-term resource management, research, and development. 

Our mission is still focused on providing the Amateur Radio Community with software, education, and support to enable them to aid public safety, emergency response and disaster relief agencies with high-speed multimedia data networks.

Continuing to rely on the financial support of a few individuals is not a sustainable means of supporting the project. Without more widespread support, the community’s growing investment in network equipment and relationships with served agencies is at risk. We expect to obtain contributions primarily from the ham community. We plan to use these funds to cover operating expenses such as web site hosting, setup a test and validation lab, obtain associated test equipment, and address the costs of promoting the project through various marketing channels. We plan to consider grants to fund worthy implementations of AREDN infrastructure as our resources may allow.

AREDN code repositories on GitHub

The AREDN source code repositories are now accessible on GitHub at https://GitHub.com/aredn/aredn_ar71xx .   GitHub is one of the largest open source hosting services with over 40 million users.   Anyone with basic knowledge of Linux and git can now compile AREDN images and contribute changes.   If you have a background in application or firmware development, the hurdle to get started and contribute to the ham community is now much lower.

GitHub also includes an issue tracking feature to capture feature requests, bug reports, and other issues.  This immediately replaces our former defect tracking tool (Bloodhound).
 

​AREDN GitHub Activity

The GitHub setup is intended to jump AREDN forward to stay current, and benefiting from, the 1000+ developers of Linux and OpenWrt releasing a steady stream of advancements and fixes.    AREDN is now based on this stream.  By staying current, our community is able to focus on those features unique to the ham community.

The OpenWrt group produces a major release each year followed by 3 or 4 point releases in successive months.   The latest release candidate was published in June 2018 with a final release targeted in July.

​Hamvention 2017 Days 2 and 3


You know life is good when you go to bed tired and happy with what was accomplished that day and wake up full of energy ready to do it again. That is the way I have felt the past several days.

Saturday is the big day at Hamvention in terms of crowds and presentations. The Miami Valley Mesh Alliance and AREDN booth saw its share of both all day Saturday and all morning on Sunday. There was a non-stop stream of hams interested in how an AREDN mesh network can help them provide better services to their local emergency responders. And we were prepared with answers and examples for them.

As a result of preparing for Hamvention, we will have photos, presentations and new content on the website soon. Just give us some time to rest and organize the material. We will also have links to media created by others who covered our presence at the event.

Andre's presentation on Building a High-Speed AuxComm Data Network was a big hit with the approzimately 400 hams who packed the forum room. Jason KC5HWB video recorded the presentation and plans to show it on his YouTube channel HamRadio2.0 in the near...

​Hamvention 2017 Day 1

What an amazing, delightful and thoroughly exhausting day it has been!

The new location at the Greene County Fairgrounds is great, and while I am sure there will be a number of things that need to be improved for next year, overall this site is a winner for Hamvention. DARA and the hundreds (thousands?) of volunteers who worked to make this event successful are to be commended and thanked for their efforts.

We had a lot of traffic at the booth on Friday. There were many interesting conversations with hams from all over the U.S, Canada and Europe. The mini classes have been well-attended. Even though the classes are short - only 15 to 20 minutes - most people found them useful. They give us the opportunity to have extended talks about specific subjects. We'll post a lot of this information on the website in the near future.

All mini class attendees get a ticket for a door prize drawing. We draw the winning tickets at 3:30 pm and you must be present at our booth to collect a door prize. Yesterday we awarded two prizes to hams whose names and photos will be posted later. The prizes were a Nanostation...
