Dr. Bob

Bob Dixon, W8ERD MESH round two A lot has been going on behind the scenes in the world of MESH.  Bob and Joe Papworth, K8MP have been lighting up the circuits lately with a lot of testing: Joe K8MP and I have been conducting experiments with VoIP on our mesh network. There will be some temporary changes in the network. We have been in discussion with the AREDN gurus. In order to determine the effect of many nodes on the network, and the “hidden node” problem, I will temporarily change the channel of the Lewis Center and Ostrander nodes to -1. Joe and I will also change our home nodes to -1.  This may provide useful information. It will occur today or tomorrow. After that everything will be put back to normal on -2. Bob has graciously offered to meet any of us at any time to discuss and demonstrate MESH- it;s still an exciting new mode in our arsenel!
