AREDN™ - The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network

Mesh technology has evolved over the years.  Most notably, Broadband-Hamnet™ (BBHN) has made substantial progress over the past 2 years in expanding their unique approach to environmentally robust, commercially available, Ubiquiti, hardware.  This has changed the complexion of mesh implementations from an experimental, hobby-oriented, novelty into a viable alternative network suitable for restoring some level of Inter/intra-net connectivity when “all else fails.”

Recently, the developers of BBHN software have kicked-off a new project focused on taking this technology to the next level.  Comprised of the project manager, developers, and several of the testers who brought BBHN to Ubiquiti hardware, this team is geared to pick up where BBHN left-off.

The AREDN Project mission is to provide the Amateur Radio Community with a quality solution for supporting the needs of high speed data in the Amateur Radio and Emergency Communications field.

We invite you download and adopt the AREDN Release 3.0.2 and give us the opportunity to support your mesh implementation.

For the AREDN Team,

Andre, K6AH

Private Messaging Available


Are you a bit reluctant to put your email address in a Forum post? Or do you just want to save a bit of time when contacting an AREDN community member directly?

Well, you are in luck! There is a very easy way to use the messaging feature of the AREDN website.

You can also just click on the poster's callsign in a Forum post or in search results which show "published by" the callsign of interest. When you click on the callsign it will bring up that person's profile. This last tab on the right side of the profile is Contact. When you select that tab, it opens up a message form that will be sent to the selected callsign - without the need to keep putting email addresses in Forum posts.

When seeking direct replies to your next Forum post, give it a try by asking responders to click on your callsign and save a bit of typing.


AREDN at the 2016 NYC Marathon


The New York City – Tata Consultancy Services (NYC TCS) Marathon is a hugely visible annual event. This early November road race draws runners from around the world. A record 51,388 finishers crossed the finish line on Sunday, November 6, 2016, making it the largest marathon in the world in history.

More than one million spectators and thousands of volunteers line the city streets in support of the runners, while millions more watch the television broadcast in 175 countries and territories, including viewers in the New York area on WABC-TV, Channel 7, nationally on ESPN2, and via various international broadcast partners.

A vast cadre of amateur radio operators provide essential communications to support the safety of race participants and organizers.  An AREDN mesh network and associated Voice over IP telephony services provided the reliable communications infrastructure necessary for this important event.  The story of this deployment in a very challenging environment is told by Gordon W2TTT.

Search results improvement

The results you will see from a search have changed. By default, search results are now grouped by the type of source page. This means that all results from Forum Topics are grouped together separately from search results from Knowledge Base, How To, News, Announcements and other page types.

Additionally, the source forum is indicated so that you will immediately know if the search result originated in a regional sub-forum or something else, such as hardware, VoIP, deployment or ragchew. 

We hope that this improvement makes finding information easier for you.

​AREDN Team to Attend TAPR 2016

The AREDN team will be attending the 35th Annual ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference on September 16-18, 2016, St Petersburg, FL.

Our very own, Andre, K6AH, will be presenting an update on the AREDN project at 1:00 pm on Friday September 16. His paper builds on an AREDN paper published in the proceedings of the ARRL and TAPR 34th Digital Communications Conference 2015. Where that paper introduced the technology and the work of the AREDN Project software development team, this paper picks up where that leaves off and describes techniques for deploying AREDN in support of AUXCOM.

We plan to be in the demo room to show some AREDN applications. We would love to see you there.
