A portable communications station using amateur radio will be demonstrated, in collaboration with the Manly-Warringah Radio Society. We will operate using solar and generator power and not rely on existing communications infrastructure such as cell towers and the internet; simulating an emergency disaster relief situation such as Hurricane Katrina. Direct contacts with other radio operators across the country and overseas will be attempted. We will also demonstrate software defined radios which have revolutionised architectures.
