1 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL Digital Radio for the Last Mile Last 30 Miles Digital Amateur Radio vs. WiFi

2 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL Agenda Introduction Recent Disaster EmComm Digital Technology in Amateur Radio D-STAR Technology High Speed (IP) Connectivity Low Speed (Serial) Connectivity Voice EmComm Requirements Sample Scenario Summary

3 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL Recent Amateur Radio EmComm 9/11 Tsunami Hurricanes Tornados Floods Earthquakes

4 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL Why Amateur Radio? Primary Communications Infrastructure Overloaded or Destroyed Large Pool of Trained Communicators Equipment Not Reliant Upon Existing Infrastructure Frequency Agile

5 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL Primary Modes Used VOICE Winlink Packet CW

6 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL What’s Missing? Reliable, Usable Data

7 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL Is Data Important? Does FEMA Use Forms? Does the Red Cross Use Forms? Do % of Served Agencies Use Forms? Which is More Accurate: Voice or Data?

8 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL Is Voice Obsolete? No Tactical Commands Real Time Narrative Real Time Status

9 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL D-STAR Digital – Smart Technology for Amateur Radio Developed by JARL Open Protocol Specification Digital Voice Digital Data

10 Copyright © 2006 – Pete Loveall AE5PL D-STAR High Speed Data 1.2 GHz 128 Kbps (150 KHz BW) IP Ethernet Connection Internet Capable
