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,
A video of the presentation given by Conrad KG6JEI titled AREDN: The successor and future of BBHN at Ham-Com 2016 in Irving, Texas is available on the Internet. It was produced by Jason KC5HWB and is available on his website Hamradio 2.0 Live from the Hamshack. Jason did an excellent job of recording the talk. He also offers his personal impression of the evolution of mesh networking in the introduction. There are many other entertaining podcasts, now numbering 47, on Jason's website.
The presentation slide deck will be available shortly in the Archive section of Ham-com 2016.
The AREDN team would like to thank the organizers of Ham-Com 2016 for putting on a first-rate convention. The staff were always eager to help and always delivered quickly.

The AREDN team will be present at Ham-Com 2016 in Irving, Texas on June 10 and 11.
At 12:00 noon on Friday in room 4, Conrad KG6JEI will present an overview of the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network project and how it can help you meet the growing need to transmit large amounts of data efficiently over Amateur Radio. The talk will be followed by a discussion and workshop at which team members will demonstrate various aspects of the current software.
We plan to run the workshop again on Saturday. We are scheduled to be in Room 9 again from 13:00 to 14:50.
We are looking forward to seeing you there and answering your questions.
How To Use PuTTYGen to Make SSH Keys and Use Them on AREDN Nodes
This How To will show you a method for generating SSH key pairs on a Windows computer, saving them to a USB flash drive, installing the SSH key on an AREDN node and using the SSH keys with a PuTTY terminal session.
The use of Secure Shell (SSH) keys when using PuTTY or another SSH client is a useful aid to managing a group of AREDN nodes.
First, obtain the PuTTY suite of applications from the PuTTY Download Page and...Read More
