AREDN zur Beobachtung von Buschfeuern im Einsatz

DARC - Fri, 18/10/2019 - 12:31

Gleich zwei Gruppen setzen im US-amerikanischen Bundesstaat Kalifornien das Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) ein, um Buschfeuer zu beobachten. Die Mariposa Area Amateur Radio Organisation (MAARO) nutzt das Mesh-Netzwerk, um einen Videostream zu realisieren. Ein entsprechender Mitschnitt ist auch auf YouTube abrufbar: www.youtube.com/watch.

Auch der Pleasant Valley Amateur Radio Club (PVARC) nutzt das Mesh-Netzwerk, um Videobilder vom Saddle Rich Feuer nahe Los Angeles von einer Amateurfunk-Relaisstelle zu übertragen, von der aus man das San Fernando Tal überblicken kann. Auch hier gibt es einen Videostream auf YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwfgCXnJlo8. Der amerikanische Amateurfunkverband ARRL berichtet, dass die Briceburg- und Saddle-Ridge-Feuer nun unter Kontrolle sein. AREDN wird auch bei Notfunkaktivitäten hierzulande eingesetzt. Verwendet wird oft die gleiche Hardware, die für Hamnet zum Einsatz kommt, allerdings mit einer speziellen Firmware.

Pitcairn Island DXpedition

SARC - Fri, 18/10/2019 - 09:30
I experienced a sudden and relatively severe, acute illness and was hospitalized for a number of days. I am recovering at home, but the risk of compromising the DXpedition to Pitcairn Island is too great for me to make the trip with the team. My friend Glenn, W0GJ, will take on my responsibilities and the DXpedition will proceed as otherwise planned. Ralph K0IR
