Busy Weekend for South Wilts RAYNET UK
This weekend proved to be very busy for members of South Wiltshire RAYNET UK. The team was split in two to support colleagues in Serve On in Gloucester for the Gloucestershire Police Open Day & Portsmouth for the Hayling Island Sailing Regatta.
At Hayling Island, we provided essential safety communications for the boat teams out in the water with our VHF Repeater. Before the event, a team when to RV the area to determine the best site for the repeater, and ensure continuous comms on the race circuit.
Our other team travelled with Serve On to Gloucester Police HQ, to provide WiFi & phone capability with the WiFi MESH Equipment. An internet connection was provided from both the Police HQ and Serve On's own Satellite Communication Equipment. The MESH was used to combine both of these into the VAC (Voluntary Agencies Cell) over the distance of the site. IP phones were provided on each desk within the VAC for use by the commanding team of the Open Day Event.
