Ham Radio 360: A.R.E.D.N. Amateur Radio Emer Data Network

Ham Radio Mesh Networking has been one of those things that I’ve wanted to learn about.  After a quick peek around and a few questions asked, I stumbled into AREDN (Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network).

Join me as I learn about Mesh Networking over Ham Radio with Randy (WU2S) and Darryl (K5DLQ) in this latest installment of the Ham Radio 360 Podcast.

We also announce the Winners of our Annual Christmas Prize Giveaway.
