  • Added a “busy spinner” on the SNR Chart to indicate data is being collected and to wait for results

Request for Testers for Ubiquiti XW Issues

 

Our need for XW testers is over. Thanks to the dedicated hams who volunteered to help tackle these thorny issues, we have completed most of the solution testing deemed sufficient to give us confidence in the applied fixes. There is still a bit of additional work to do before we announce a new stable release.

​We still need supporting information from our testers to be entered in the Bloodhound bug reporting system so that we can complete the verification. If you have tested the XW fixes, and have not yet updated the Bloodhound tickets with your reports, logs and data files, please do so as soon as possible.

 

The Development Team is currently focused on troubleshooting the Ubiquiti XW issue.  We believe there are likely multiple defects across multiple products which has made this a challenging exercise.

We are looking for testers willing to step out on the edge for us to confirm the existence of these problems across our supported Ubiquiti devices.

Randy Smith, WU2S will present an overview of AREDN mesh networking at 11:00 am in the Sarasota County Red Cross headquarters building. Randy will describe how a high-speed data can support your emergency communications. He will cover how to plan a network, what equipment to buy, how to get setup and why you should consider putting AREDN at the center of emergency prepAREDNess.

Yuma Hamfest 2017


Andre K6AH from the AREDN team will conduct a seminar on Saturday, February 18  at 10:20  on the effort to federate independent AREDN networks across California.

Conrad KG6JEI from the AREDN team and his friends of the Amateur Radio Tower Trailer Team will also be present. 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.

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 convenience
  • Digtial/MESH ATV: A PTZ Camera similar to the ones used at many sites here in SOCAL
  • Additional "service" demo's

Out of respect for the balloon launch which is scheduled to be carrying an AREDN payload on channel -2, our local mesh operations will likely be on channel 1 with an SSID of AREDN-20-v3. Stop by the trailer for more details of coordinated frequency usage on site.
