Amateur Radio Digital & Voice Emergency Communications – A down-to-earth how-to book for inexpensively creating both voice and digital emergency communications assets and skills within your community. The story of how the ARES group in Alachua County Florida (home of the Gators!) went from “0 to 60” on digital communications in only a few months. CERT volunteers became hams through Technician classes, five VHF packet server stations were created using Raspberry Pi’s to reduce costs, WINLINK servers came into existence….client stations were created. Skills involving antennas, software, operations, propagation – all were developed. Technicians graduated to General Class, “solder sessions” and other educational sessions sprang up on weekends. Antenna-Raising Parties & slingshots became popular! VHF distances achieved broke all expectations.
And everyone had FUN learning, building and doing!
This 2nd Edition adds new information on MESH, easier keyboard to keyboard packet communications, NIMs-compliant Full Scale Exercises and leadership idea.
