The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) network is growing in Rhode Island!
New nodes on 2.4 GHz are operational at All Saints Academy using a 60 degree sector pointing west, and in Newport with an omni directional antenna. Look for SSIDs AREDN or BBHN on channel -2. These join existing nodes in Providence and NW RI.
Last week the Newport School Committee approved the placement of a W1VRC ham radio tower on campus which will include an AREDN node. Other sites are being pursued in order to link — via RF — Newport County nodes to existing nodes in and around Providence.
The AREDN network currently supports these apps
- IP cameras
- Web Servers
- PBX and VOIP Phones
