Development Code Branch Now Available


Last year AREDN moved away from a formal set of beta test scripts and dedicated testers to a more agile beta general-release model.  Users were eager to get their hands on features they requested months earlier and help us test in preparation for a production release.   While we have been happy with the results, we have noticed that features that take a long time to develop only see the light of day months after development.  We have no easy way to learn from them before beta release.  Today, this is changing.
 
We are going to give anyone who wants it, access to the AREDN development branch builds, which includes the latest features we are developing… even before we are done with them!
 
We have been criticized by some for putting out too many releases.  Our philosophy, which does differ from some other organizations, is very much aligned to the vast majority of open source projects in the industry.  We are completely committed to following this successful model. It is an approach that is more suitable to our nature characterized by: dynamic requirements, a small number of developers, a culture that readily responds to change, and a user community of hams comprised of a highly technical subset who are mature enough to distinguish bleeding-edge from production-ready software.
 
AREDN uses a continuous integration build server (Jenkins)...

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."
