Lecture and Lab 3-25-17 – 10AM – 2PM All About AREDN!


Our next “Lecture and Lab” March 25, 2017 will be about the “Amateur Radio Emergency Digital Network” (AREDN).   We’ll be answering questions about “What is it?” “What can I use it for?” and, of course, the most important part, “How do I set it up?”

Bring your Nano, Bullet radios and VOIP gear to test operation, update to the latest firmware, and get up-to-the-minute tips and tricks concerning proper setup, and participate in a full mesh exercise.

If you don’t have any equipment, that’s okay.  We all want to know more about AREDN!

Learn about the hottest new ham activity in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.  Continue reading
