Don Rotolo, N2IRZ wrote an article, published in the January 2017 edition of CQ Magazine, updating readers on the world of mesh networking.

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)...

​Video Recordings Wanted

We are starting to collect video recordings of AREDN networking activities for use in education and promotions. If you have experience in creating quality videos of people working outdoors, and are interested in helping us tell the story, please contact Randy WU2S by email to wu2s at aredn.org

The video segments we want can be as short as 15 to 20 seconds but no more than about 2 minutes. A video with a focus on a specific activity works best. Examples of such activities include: installing an AREDN mesh node on a mast at a new deployment, a view of a served agency staffer (eg. OEM, Red Cross, etc.) using a mesh connected VoIP phone or WinLink during an exercise or deployment, video captures from camera used to support public officials at parades, bike races and 10K runs. A picture of the AREDN label on the equipment used would be a big plus.

Field Day is a great opportunity to capture some mesh networking in the context of our annual preparedness exercise.

Be sure to get a model's release from anyone you record so that the AREDN project can freely use their image on the website and in marketing...

​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 future...
