HF / VHF / UHF Bands Operating Guide High Speed Multi Media MiniLog Nifty E-Z Guide to EchoLink Operation
The best band plan and operating guide around.  Perfect for every ham. Build a High Speed Amateur Radio Microwave Network

Using commercial off-the-shelf equipment and developing their own software, groups of hams have created high speed wireless Amateur Radio digital networks with wide area coverage.

The possible uses for these high speed data networks in the Amateur Radio community are endless. Virtually any service that works on the regular Internet can be adapted to an Amateur Radio high speed multimedia (HSMM) network, including video conferencing, instant messaging, voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), network sensors and cameras, remote station control, and many other services. With the capability to send real-time video and data files, the public service and disaster support aspects of Amateur Radio are expanded tremendously.

This book introduces HSMM networking, explains the basics of how it works, and describes the various technologies in use today. Later chapters explain in detail how to deploy your own HSMM network, along with various applications to put it to work. Well illustrated step-by-step instructions will guide you through the process of installing and configuring software needed to get your HSMM network up and running.

    Includes:
  • Introduction to High Speed Multimedia
  • High Speed Multimedia Technologies
  • HSMM Equipment for Amateur Radio
  • TCP/IP for HSMM
  • HSMM Applications
  • Security and Filtering
  • Backup and Redundancy
  • Deploying HSMM Networks
  • The Future of HSMM
