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!

AREDN at Hamvention 2019

It is finally here! We are looking forward to seeing you at Hamvention in Xenia, Ohio this Friday through Sunday, May 17-19.

We are in booth #1001. We will have a lot of equipment on display, including some of the newest gear from Mikrotik and our  fourth supported manufacturer GL-iNet.

In addition to the new hardware, we have made a lot of improvements in the firmware. We want to hear your comments and questions on the recent changes. As always, your ideas help us set the direction for future enhancements.

We will hold some short classes on a variety of topics to help get you started or to extend your capabilities.

Stop by our booth and say hello.

​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...

​AREDN in June 2017 QST

AREDN – A High-Speed Data Network by Andre Hansen, K6AH appears in the June 2017 edition of QST.  The article is a thorough discussion of a high-speed multimedia network for public service applications.

Andre describes the features and functions of this innovative open-source effort. The AREDN project repurposes commercial microwave hardware for use on amateur radio bands. He provides an overview of the steps necessary in designing, building and operating an RF network which is focused on supporting emergency response agencies.

A large-scale deployment already covers much of Southern California. A multi-tiered AREDN network in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange and Los Angeles counties covers more than 16,000 square miles and has the potential to serve over 18 million people.
