Ham Radio Presentations at SCALE 17X on YouTube


The ham radio presentations from the SCALE 17X conference are now available on YouTube.

The presentations are:
1. Orv Beach, W6BI will detail that growth with emphasis on Southern California, with metrics, maps and graphs.  He'll also cover some of the more significant network events, including the ability to stream video of recent brush fires from networked mountaintop webcams to YouTube.

2. Paul Wilkinson, K6IG talks about “Raspberry Pi + HAM Radio = Inexpensive repeater system”. With little effort a very powerful HAM repeater can be made with a Raspberry Pi, two HAM radios, and an internet connection. Some additional, yet inexpensive, hardware is required.

3. Ben Kuo, AI6YR presents “Linux, Raspberry PI, RTLSDR, LAME, and Open Source: A Recipe For Responding To Natural Disasters”. He covers both the why's and how's of putting together your own Raspberry Pi-based, open source system to help your own local community tap into the power of the crowdsourcing and social media emergency management.

QSO Today Interviews Andre K6AH


Eric Guth, 4Z1UG / WA6IGR writes "Andre Hansen, K6AH, and his team of open source developers have taken amateur radio mesh networking to a new level with AREDN, that allows commercial low cost WIFI routers and access points to be used to build out local and regional broadband networks in the amateur bands above 2 GHz. Andre and I discuss this technology and its possibilities for the amateur radio community in this QSO Today."

Listen to the QSO Today podcast here.

"QSO Today is a podcast about amateur radio also known as ham radio.  Every week, I interview a leader, a mover and shaker, in the amateur radio world.  Many of the technologies that we enjoy today including television and radio, cell phones, computers, and the Internet were born out of the amateur radio experience. Amateur radio was the frontier where hams conducted electronic experiments in order to make that wireless contact around the World."
