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!

​DMR over MESH Forum from Cowtown Hamfest, 2018

From the Cowtown Hamfest, KD5RXT shows us how to connect DMR hotspots together over a MESH network, using either AREDN or BBHN.  AREDN is one of my show sponsors, and I am happy to support them.  This is a cool idea on how to setup an inter-op network to use DMR if you have to setup in an emergency situation or somewhere without internet.

Reminder - AREDN Has Implemented TLS on Website


The AREDN Project has enabled mandatory use of transport layer security (TLS) on the AREDNMESH.org website starting today Saturday, September 23, 2017.  TLS is an encryption technology that obscures the meaning of the website traffic to 3rd parties. We are doing this to better serve our community and to avoid being labeled a potentially harmful website by ever increasingly strict search engines and browsers.

You should know that accessing the AREDN website with TLS over an amateur radio link may be considered a violation of FCC Part 97 regulations.
