Re: Dayton Hamvention 2018

The AREDN Project and the Miami Valley Mesh Alliance will have a large presence at Hamvention 2018. We will be in booth 1001 in Building 1 at the Greene County Fairgrounds near Xenia, Ohio. The dates are Friday, Saturday and Sunday May 18, 19 and 20, 2018.

We will be conducting several demonstrations and answer all your questions about how mesh networking can aid your local emergency response agencies. In the AREDN Forum under General Discussion we have a thread to collect your suggestions for what you would like to see demonstrated.

In Forum room 2 on Saturday, May 19th, from 1:30 to 2:30, Andre, K6AH, the AREDN Project Manager, will discuss why delivering mesh networking as part of your group’s EMCOMM services will produce a paradigm change for the disaster services community you serve.

Hams such as yourselves, are now building or have already implemented AREDN networks in their own cities and counties throughout the US.  Learn how they are utilizing this exciting technology and how you can get involved in these efforts.  Andre will also describe what equipment you should be considering, how you can get connected, and how to assemble your go kit.

Finally, Andre will discuss the amazing tools you will be providing first responders and disaster service agencies such as the ARES/RACES (AUXCOM), EOCs, CERT, and the Red Cross.

An active AREDN network will be in operation during Hamvention. It will operate on channel -2 with 10MHz bandwidth. You may connect to it with your portable equipment. Other bands may also be used – please check with us at our booth.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
