Ordered some books in order to get my HAM-radio certification. And when thats done I can finally start building some AREDN nodes

A friend of mine just put up the first node in Sweden, hopefully our project can grow into a bigger network soon

It is quite cool how an #AREDN node can be built with relative cheap hardware

A "emergency mesh network" basically, so you can communicate even if everything goes down :)

@selea I gotta get me some of that. What do I get and where?

@joacim

If you have "Amatörradiocertifikat", you can build it with some of the hardware listed here:

arednmesh.org/content/supporte

So not really any kind of exclusive hardware either :)

@selea
What is the size of the area you can send to and receive from your home and at which speed? The mesh idea is cool.

@kmj
Depends on the hardware - but from what I have seen, it is between 30 and 60km,
Directional antennas is even more powerful
