Net Activity / What are we learning from Puerto Rico?
January 11, 2020, 10:45:08 am
Pureto Rico has now been hit hard... again.
What have we learned?
Did https://www.arednmesh.org/ save the day?
If not, why not???

I'm thinking of setting up a node with
https://www.arednmesh.org/

While researching this, I started to also learn about LORA

I did a search for this forum and on youtube and find very little about use of LoraWan for prepping and communication in emergencies
https://lora-alliance.org/about-lorawan
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LoRa#LoRaWAN

I know that this is typically thought of for other uses... but it is inexpensive, uses low power, portable, and seems like it could easily by a text-message option.  It doesn't even require a HAM license to use...

I'm just learning about this, and figure that there are many smarter here.
Thoughts?

Thank you so much Gil!
If starting with a qcx... which band would you recommend?
If i brought this camping i would only have the one band... so would want to make the most of it.

This is a great thread but much has happened since its last update in 2017.  Any new thoughts on the topic?

New To Radio / Best Prepper Mobile Setup

First off... amazing resource.  I'm very excited to have found this community!

After reading these posts, I am interested by two systems most for their portability, low power consumption, and range.

1.  https://www.lnrprecision.com/mountain-toppers/

2.  http://qrp-labs.com/qsx.html  (Comming soon?)

Being able to communicate hundreds of miles on a few AA batteries is nothing short of magical.
I would love to see something like this in action, or learn about other similar systems that may fit the bill.  If anyone has something like this on Long Island and is a member here please message me and I would be so happy to see a working set up.

I would be happy to build as a kit as well, as I'm very hands on.
Looking forward to your thoughts
Thanks again!
