I will once again be attending the Yuma Hamfest along with my friends of the Amateur Radio Tower Trailer Team.
Mesh will again be apart of the demo operations planned from the trailer station so please feel free to come by and talk a bit about MESH or anything else Amateur Radio (or just to operate the HF station, we won't take it personally if that's the only reason you say hello)
New mesh additions this year:
* Local Access point: an open wifi network will be made available to connect into. This is a method used by local EOC's deployments to bring the non-ham's onto the network. Browse the services at your convince
* Digtial/MESH ATV: A PTZ Camera similar to the ones used at many sites here in SOCAL (will likely set it up on a auto patrol scan of the grounds but TBD)
* Additional "service" demo's
Out of respect for the balloon launch which at last I had heard was scheduled to be carrying an AREDN payload on channel -2 local mesh operations will likely be on channel 1 AREDN-20-v3. Stop by the trailer for more details of coordinated frequency usage on site.
Look forward to having a good time in Yuma!
