Official Website for Broadband-Hamnet Microwave Communication System

Philadelphia Area


Abstract

Our Broadband-Hamnet Microwave Communication System (BHMCS) is an inexpensive alternative to traditional HAM radio equipment that is still reliable to use in emergency situations. We will use readily available Linksys WRT54G routers to setup a long distance communication network that is self-configuring allowing users to easily find one another. In the process of creating a self-configuring network we create a new network protocol termed remote machine discovery protocol (RMDP). At the heart of the project is a Raspberry Pi 2 processor, which will handle all half-duplex/full duplex communications. Knowledge of data communication and transmission, statistical bit error correction, antenna design, and network programing are required to complete project. We hope our project will successfully supplement the Amateur Radio community’s radio network in the Philadelphia Area.
