AREDN Update 9/22/21

Nat 2733E N6BRV
 

AREDN testing Update:

·         The RF link to San Marcos still working well.  Investigated why it is still working albeit inside the double pane window and obstructed by stucco wall and tree

o   The MikroTik LHG is a dual chain (vertical plus horizontal) MIMO transceiver RF combiner. Unifying the signals similar to CDMA

o   By luck, there’s a clear line of sight to the AI6BX AREDN node (see below from the simulation)

o   To see Repeater coverage or simulate your RF path use this link à https://www.ve2dbe.com/rmonline_s.asp

·         Hooking up VoIP phone to AREDN RF link.

o   Successfully Tested VoIP phone with KM6ZPO by Direct IP Call.  Some Packet loss due to many (counted 8) hops but mostly clear voice.

o   See example of P2P AREDN link VoIP phone à (37) Amateur Radio Field Phone Concept - VOIP & AREDN - YouTube

Just as a heads up there are still issues with DMR related to the PAPA System. There is a combination of issues going on. First they are still experiencing issues with Brandmeister and the communications with BrandMeister hasn’t been very good. There is also a requirement to visit each hilltop to make some changes to their systems. With these issues I would expect our DMR will not work as we would want it to tonight.

 

My recommendation is to have someone take the lead on running a checkin on the following repeaters as standalone, Otay, San Marcos Peak, and Santiago. Those is Orange County don’t try to use Saddle as there is a repeater somewhere on the same frequency that is causing interference. The PAPA group is in the process of trying to track down the interfering system to solve the issue.

Thank you for posting this very informative AREDN Information to the Group. 

It's a definite solution to the existing  problems facing the EmComms groups today in the field.

Quick summary:

 

Yesterday, I visited Andre K6AH QTH and exchanged my Homemade gourmet bread with his AREDN Antenna & Hardware.

I dully placed the Mikrotik 5GHz Antenna on my diminutive window and WOW, AREDN is running.

The 3 high Res (4Mb) pictures in the attachment were sent by RF AREDN through 5 GHz MikroTik. Looks like the original. Handshake – flawless.

 

In summary,

·         The one hop to AI6BX node worked well with 7.5Mbps (7,500Kbps) rate.  Actual speed test (tunnel through Los Angeles server, I’m in Carlsbad now) yielded ~ 0.4Mbps (400Kbps). Without optimized antenna direction.  Will retest when the antenna direction is optimized with San Diego server.

·         Everything is done by the AREDN software, just have to configure the setup appropriately.

·         Sending and receiving eMails, Browsing the Internet were as transparent as if I was using commercial WAN attached to my LAN.

 

Overall, I’m excited to learning more and grow with AREDN.

And many thanks again to Andre K6AH and the AREDN team. They’ve done an excellent job so far to say the least.

The theoretical limit on an AREDN link is 144 Mbps based on the 802.11n RF encoding scheme.  The 400 Mbps they describe in the article refers to the user WIFI connection.

 

Note that the San Diego AREDN backbone network is in the process of being redesigned to be in compliance with recent FCC spectrum changes.  Also note that ownership of the backbone has been transferred to Keith, AI6BX, because I am no longer able to service these nodes.

It is my understanding that the American Red Cross relies entirely upon their computing systems, all of which are cloud based. Therefore, I will focus my attention upon solutions that meet that basic operating need of every part of this organization.  

I am a ham radio operator, but I also have 40 years of computing experience. I recognize that no form of radio communications can support the data needs of the organization. AREDN CAN fill the gaps of necessary data links when they are down.  We only need to put effort into figuring out how.
