The Big Mountain Crew made a trip to the repeater site Saturday December 12 to do some HSMM- MESH network antenna/ transceiver work. The crew consisted of Bob- KI4VFP, Loren-N4LDR, Tim-AK4CJ and Mark-N4YSA.

The project for the day was to re-aim a sector antenna toward Luray and install an antenna/transceiver/node directly toward Bob-KI4VFP’s QTH.

This project is part of the Valley HSMM-MESH network. We are expanding the network to get more users on board. Currently, we have antennas on Big Mountain toward Harrisonburg, New Market, Luray, Stanley and Elkton. See the related article on HSMM on the menu for a more thorough explanation of HSMM.

Anyone who is interested in this project, I recommend you do some internet research. You will find an abundance of web sites with information for all levels of knowledge. Email anyone on the project team and they will help you or introduce you to someone who can.

HSMM-MESH is a growing part of Amateur Radio. It is easy to get started and relatively inexpensive; a Ubiquiti M2 Airgrid 2.4GHz is about $70.00, some cat5, a computer, a line of site to a node, Big Mountain or someone connected to Big Mountain and you’re on your way.

If we have enough interest we may do a Saturday HSMM-MESH workshop.
