|Mesh Networking for Hams|
Mesh networks are used to create fault tolerant local area networks via radio. You might be asking yourself, what the heck does that mean and how does it apply to Amateur Radio? At our September gathering, Greg VK2GSB will explain.
Mesh networking has a range of applications with Amateur Radio but as it uses Wi-Fi, there’s an overlap with our 2.4GHz spectrum which means we can also experiment in that band.
One way Amateurs experiment is with open source software that can be used with a range of suitable off the shelf Wi-Fi routers. Greg will explain how this is done and also show one version of mesh network he’s experimented with using a very common brand of Wi-Fi router that you can pick up now quite cheap.
Hear this very interesting presentation at the next gathering of The St George Amateur Radio Society, Wednesday evening 4th September in the meeting rooms at Donnelly Park, Kyle Parade, Connells Point - near South Hurstville. The gathering starts at 7.30pm.
