This is especially to Hal and Terry, and other interested parties:
I am now back in FL, West coast. How do we want to start this
project? I think your suggestion Hal, to initially establish a primary
and secondary voice channel is a good start. I would suggest 17M as
primary and 20M as secondary. If everyone is an Extra I would suggest
that segment because of the likely hood of less QRM or the frequency
segment of the highest privileges of the people in the project. I wait
to here your suggestions.
Hal, the Linux ALE (Automatic Link Establishment) code is at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxale. My suggestion would be to use
this as our base. I either has or has the capability of voice, data,
QoS data that we discussed a Tippy's. Please also reference Dr. Brain's
site at http://www.chbrain.dircon.co.uk/hfemail.html. The code on
sourceforge is his. There is a very good possibility that he would
release the current code to us considering the prestige of AMRAD,
Terry's and AMRAD development of AX.25, etc., etc.
I am of the opinion that whatever we develop we need both voice and
digital modes (read email) both routed over radio with TCP/IP. Most all
major radio systems for state emergency management, law enforcement,
state and federal forestry either have TCP/IP based radio and dispatch
or are working with vendors to achieve same. The state of Fl has this
both for FHP and FDLE and this past year has been installing TCP/IP
based radio for all dispatch centers and mobile command centers.
Awaiting your response.
