Broad Band Field Day
Mike, K3MBB has been working hard developing a whole slew of MESH applications for the network, VoIP, audio streaming, video, cameras are the usual. Mike also setup Radio over IP (RoIP) to his IC-7100. The most intriguing was setting up a tunnel to MESH nodes in Texas. Mike connected three Frederick locations to the MESH nodes in Texas, bringing up a whole range of MESH services. It would be great to see how many of these MESH nodes will be set up at this year's Field Day events. Field Day could be a Broad Band Field Day for one and all.
The Prince William County Broadband-Hamnet Workshop was a great sucess!

There were 8 people from the OVH Manassas club and 10 from the WWI Woodbridge club
The two clubs are planning another workshop soon over in the Manassas City area.
The interest in BBHN is growing and more clubs are working together.
The DECT Field Day IP Network!
Preparations for the DECT field day included a link between the Damascus firehouse and the Field Day location.
The group set up two NanoBeam nodes with respective laptops both linked to the firehouse.
The Van provided internet connectivity via the Braddock Heights node.
KB3TCB is looking forward to linking the DECT field Day with three other field day locations in the Area

WiFi Emergency Wireless Network by Craig Anderson presented at SVECS

Craig Anderson presented a Terrestrial Microwave Data Network in the context of RACES to the Silicon Valley Emergency Communications System quarterly breakfast meeting on October 25, 2014. SVECS website This countywide broadband mesh network uses low cost wireless links of WISP and WIFI equipment (2.4 and 5.8 GHz Part 15 802.11 radios) between emergency operations centers throughout Santa Clara County. These wireless datalinks enable applications as diverse as the internet itself including web services, forms, instant messaging, file transfer, VOIP phone service, digital video, or social media, but without reliance on public internet infrastructure. This system began as the Santa Clara Emergency Wireless Network,, a standalone system independent of the internet and commercial networks. Most currently deployed radios are products by Ubiquiti Networks, such as BulletM, NanoBridge, and NanoStation. These radios were favored because they are the most affordable devices we could find that were tailored to long range communication.
