LifeNet Emergency Communications Network - Voice over ad hoc Wi-Fi

The LCSA is exploring local deployment of the prototype LifeNet software stack as "a WiFi-based data communication solution designed for post-disaster scenarios". LifeNet is a fault-tolerant multipath routing framework which uses COTS (Commodity Off-The-Shelf) 802.11.x WiFi equipment to route emergency traffic from device to device until it can reach functioning infrastructure.

Aurora Hamfest 2012

This is an annual amateur radio gathering in Aurora, Missouri which falls on Saturday 14 April. As discussed at our business meeting of 12 April, they will be conducting licensing tests at 10 am and this is a good opportunity to get your HAM Novice license as well as to meet local ARES volunteers and potentially, perform outreach for the Auxiliary. ARES, the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, is the backbone for emergency communications in Missouri; working with amateur operators is critical to our mission.

ARRL Field Day 2012 (Annual HAM Radio Event)

The annual ARRL Field Day is 23-24 June 2012. This is the event where amateur radio operators turn out and test their radio equipment, often accompanied by contests, food, camping, and so forth. It is my personal goal for the LCSA to be organized enough for a test deployment and communications test with ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) as of this date. Field Day events are also a great way to meet local amateur radio folks, take tests, buy/sell/trade equipment.
