What the Hinternet?

For those of you who are familiar with digital techniques, you know that the Internet and amateur radio have a good “working relationship.” You may even know that you can send and receive digital data without the Internet via Ham radio. Did you know, however that amateur radio can replace the Internet? Anything you can presently do over the Internet whether sending messages, watching TV, streaming video, Web (http) and file transfer (ftp), chat rooms and forums, you can do with the Hinternet. The Hinternet, also known as High-Speed Multimedia Radio (HSMM), is the implementation of wireless data networks over amateur radio frequencies using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware such as 802.11 access points and D-Star equipment. Licensed amateur radio operators may use amplifiers and specialized antennas to increase the power and coverage of the 802.11 signal.

SMRC Tailgate Review

It's been a little over a month now and the memory of the Mid Tenn Summer Tailgate and Emergency Fair is not as vivid as it used to be. As the fall approaches, we look back on the MTSTEF as an overwhelming success. The event was well attended with many spending a good part of the day with us. Vendors were pleased with the interest in their products and most considered the event financially successful. Mr. Young of Total Radio told us that he sold more radios at the MTSTEF than he had in any comparable events all year. We want to thank all of our sponsors for taking an interest in our event and joining in to make this event a great success. We especially want to thank all the sponsors who donated door prizes and provided these donations on short notice.
