This News section contains reports and updates about various interesting activities our society has undertaken. This can vary from Amateur Radio activities under the callsign G3KMI or wireless networking related updates regarding the Southampton Open Wireless Network (SOWN) project.
Amateur Radio is the experimentation with radio waves on licensed frequencies, covering a wide range of activities from designing equipment to aiding emergency relief work. Our club is an RSGB exam centre, which means people can take examinations here to get their licences. We also provide training for members.
SOWN covers experimentation with wireless networking, primarily focusing on loaning nodes to individuals in order to expand the coverage of the academic Eduroam network to more diverse locations, such as private houses. Eduroam allows people from any university that takes part in the Eduroam scheme to connect to any other Eduroam wireless access point.
