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
