A small band of Amateur Radio volunteers in Utah’s Salt Lake Valley successfully used a broadband WiFi network set up on the 2.4 GHz amateur band to help coordinate the Boy Scouts of America’s “Scouting for Food” project on March 21. Scouting for Food is the Boy Scouts’ annual community service event, in which Scouts collect items for a food bank. Local radio amateurs provide both voice and digital mode communication. This year for the first time they used a Broadband-Hamnet™ (BBHN) system that coupled modified wireless router gear on amateur frequencies to create a peer-to-peer WiFi network to share audio and video over a generous patch of real estate. BBHN is a descendent of the former ARRL High Speed Multimedia (HSMM) Working Group efforts, earlier known as the “Hinternet” and pioneered by John Champa, K8OCL (SK), and others in the early 2000s.
