I've been playing around with meshtastic recently, using three lilygo t-beam units.  So far, performance has been impressive.  Further testing is needed, but I'm inclined to set up a dedicated solar powered base station that can be co-located with the KL7AA-10 digipeater.  This site would provide coverage of the entirety of the Anchorage bowl, at minimum, with the potential to reach south as far as Kenai/Soldotna.  I don't know if nodes would need to be utilizing the same encryption key or range settings in order make use of a hypothetical repeater, but it's an intriguing possibility.

KL7JFU Field Day 2023

Jermey, KL7EC put together an excellent video of the KL7JFU sponsored Field Day 2023 up in the MatSu.  Although the bands weren't great, a good time was still had by all involved.

KL7EC does a fantastic job editing his videos.  I would highly recommend checking out his other videos of his POTA adventures.  I can't say enough good about Jermey as an ambassador for ham radio.

Hello World

 Welcome to my little corner of the internet.  Here I plan to mostly document my ham radio forays, although there may be the occasional rant on here as well.  More to come soon.
