QST June 2017 article on AREDN mesh networking

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 ARDN 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.

Timely information given the presentation on the use of AREDN at the NYC Marathon by Gordon W2TTT this coming Friday, May 12.
