2023-03-31 - The Quick Mentions Edition of Zero Retries
At a recent PARC (Portland Amateur Radio Club, as in Portland, Oregon USA) club meeting we heard some plans about AREDN. The club lost its repeater site but secured a 10-year lease on a hilltop very close to my Portland QTH. After they finish getting their repeaters set up, they plan to work on AREDN. I assume that this would help extend the Willamette Valley Mesh Network (https://willamettevalleymesh.net/) which is based on AREDN farther to the north in the Willamette Valley.
Also, in episode 177 of the Ham Radio Workbench Podcast (https://www.hamradioworkbench.com/podcast) I heard George KJ7VU talking about getting more involved with AREDN. George moved up to the Portland area from California late last year so having a ham of his stature engaging on AREDN locally is bound to help energize folks. This is an exciting time in the Portland area!
