There will be a meeting at the Crawley ARC’s clubhouse on Sunday the
22nd of May 2016 as a get together of BBHN Mesh Operators and those
interested in this system of digital communications on the amateur microwave
bands – 2.4 GHz and above.
We will be holding an initial meeting for all those interested in BBHN
and hope to attract attendees from across the southern part of England for
this event. Objectives for the day are to introduce the Mesh Network
concept to newcomers and to allow existing operators to exchange
information, opinions and even system components!
The morning will feature introductory presentations and a brief
demonstration of a small BBHN system running on 2.4 GHz. Easily available
and low-cost digital microwave transceivers will be displayed and explained
which all use Open Source, FREE software/firmware!
The program of the meeting is flexible and, after lunch, will include
open discussions on the potential for forming a UK-wide organisation to
promote BBHN and microwave Mesh networking.
The usual “legendary” hospitality of CARC will be available including
the famous bacon butties!
