I agree Van. The newsletter has much of interest in it. Sorry sometimes im too lazy to even move my thumbs and say so. Unfortunately, writing is frequently a thankless job, thanks for the effort Stacey.

Subject: AREDN MESH Comes to Hawaii

In 2020, more than 80 AREDN MESH nodes were deployed in Hawaii.  As done
on the mainland, Amateurs connect their stations via a private Amateur
Radio network. Here’s a link to the current Hawaii network,

        https://tinyurl.com/y56ox3wu 

The AREDN MESH network is self-configuring.  A node added to the network
broadcasts its identity to all the other nodes.  Installation is truly
well designed and easy to use.  The ability to deploy go kits with AREDN
MESH radios that are added dynamically makes it one more digital tool to
pass traffic.

Mastering the technology allows us to build networks around our islands.
 We can be less dependent on access to high places.  Hawaii AREDN MESH
is not an Internet ISP.  We can ring our islands with many short hops
that provide multiple paths from one node to another.

The basic component needed for a short hop is the AREDN MESH router, a
MikroTik hAP.  The term hAP stands for home Access Point.  It is really
just an Internet home router that has been “flashed” to operate in
the Amateur Radio private network.  As Amateur Radio equipment goes, it
is inexpensive.  About $50 on Amazon!

With a hAP connected via Internet, Amateurs can begin learning about the
Hawaii network.  The next step is to add a microwave link to become more
independent of Internet.   A pair of MikroTik SXT 5.8 GHz radios can be
added to access a “sector node” in his area or interconnect two
Amateur’s stations via microwave.  One of these can be had for about
$70.

The IEEE recently hosted a ZOOM meeting that brought a lot of
information to Hawaii Amateurs.  Stephen Minakami (NH6XL) setup the
meeting.  We are fortunate that he was able to arrange a member of the
AREDN MESH organization, Orv Beach (W6BI), who gave a great overview of
mainland networks and the hardware and software components building the
network.  Here is a YouTube link to Orv’s talk,

                https://youtu.be/qVM4W_I8mx0

Following his talk, Gessie Alpuro (WH6AV) gave an overview of AREDN MESH
in Hawaii.  As of now AllStar repeaters and seventeen Hawaii gateways
are already connected via Hawaii AREDN MESH.  It is amazing how well
developed the network has become.

One of Gessie’s focus has been interconnecting AllStar and Winlink
gateways on the Big Island.  hAP, SXT and point to point hardware has
been donated to BIARC members to get the network started.  He is working
with Oahu as well as with his own island.  Jim Pilgram (NH6HI) is
driving the progress on Kauai.  This is truly an all-Hawaii project.

Here is a link to Gessie’s YouTube,

                https://youtu.be/U2_oHUJ2Nn4.

Hawaii ARES now supports Winlink and AREDN MESH use in its exercises.
Previously Clem Jung (KH7HO) made arrangements with the Hawaii Amateur
Radio Emergency Digital Radio Network, Inc. (HEARDn.org) a 501C3
corporation, to provide audio adapters and VARA software licenses at a
reduced cost to interested Amateurs.  He now also has HEARDn support for
AREDN MESH components.

If interested in adding digital modes to your Amateur Radio station,
contact Clem to see how ARES can help Amateurs interested in either of
these digital technologies.

All,
I tested the Waimanalo, FFMB, Manawahua and Peacock Flats repeater linking and they seem to be working for now.  Many thanks to the custodians of the repeater system.

ah the DEM system.  EARC sysops have no control over the DEM/State Allstar connected nodes.

All,
Apologies for the late notice:

On December 5th from 10:00 to 12:00 HST the Hawaii IEEE Communications
Society Chapter is hosting a seminar Introducing the technologies behind
AREDN MESH and the possibilities and capabilities to serve counties and
state for backup emergency communications.

It will cover the concept, design, and implementation of an AREDN MESH
network in Hawaii, explain where things started, what are some of the
constraints and obstacles with the design, how far it has come so far
across the state, and how the future looks for this system to play a
role in EmComm.

Moderator:
Steven Minakami, NH6XL (Honolulu ARES/RACES, Honolulu DEM, IEEE Hawaii
Section Chair, Hawaii Chapter Communications Society Chair)

Presenters:
Orville ‘Orv’ Beach, W6BI (Ventura County ACS, AREDN MESH-Ventura &
Los Angeles Counties)
Gescio ‘Jesse’ Alpuro, WH6AV (Maui ARES, Hawaii AREDN MESH Group)

This will be a ZOOM meeting for IEEE members, the Hawaii AllStar
Repeater Group, the Hawaii Emergency Amateur Radio Network, Inc., Hawaii
Amateur Radio Clubs, Hawaii ARES, and Hawaii ARRL members.
