AREDN Release Notes v3.19.3.0 – 23 March 2019

The AREDN team is pleased to announce the general availability of the latest stable release of AREDN firmware.

Since our last stable release just 6 months ago, the AREDN team has made significant progress. We now fully support 55 devices from three manufacturers, and support an additional 4 devices with some cautions. This diversity of supported equipment enables hams to choose the right gear for a given situation and budget.

Our documentation has been vastly improved. If you haven't seen it recently, please look at the --ONLINE DOCS -- link under the Docs tab on the Main Menu bar. Our documentation is available to download as a PDF so that you can read it offline at your convenience. 

  1. AREDN firmware is now based on the most recent stable version of OpenWRT 18.06.2 released in January 2019. This includes a current version of the Linux kernel. This improvement is significant in that it enables AREDN firmware to benefit from the many bug fixes, security improvements and feature enhancements provided by developers around the world.
     
  2. Current AREDN nightly builds can be loaded onto any supported (or ‘in testing’) Ubiquiti device by using the TFTP method.   If the version of AirOS is v5.5 or lower, then the AirOS Web Interface may be used to load AREDN.   The bootloader provided with AirOS 5.6 and higher will check for official “signed Ubiquiti firmware”...

​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. 


​AREDN Team at HAMCON 2017


The AREDN team will be participating in the HAMCON 2017 / ARRL Southwestern Division Conference at the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach Hotel in Torrance, California on September 15 - 17, 2017.

Andre, K6AH, will be present two sessions on the AREDN project on Saturday September 16. Andre’s talk is titled The AREDN Project: The Latest in Mesh Network.
His first session will be in the Pier 2 and 4 rooms at 11:00 a.m. His second session will be in the Pier 6 room at 1:00 p.m.

Andre will discuss key factors for success in planning and building a high-speed multimedia mesh network to support emergency service providers and communicators. He will present lessons learned from deploying a mesh network in Southern California which covers more than 16,000 square miles and has the potential to serve over 18 million people.
Both sessions will cover the same material.

We hope to see you there.
