Rocky Mountain Ham Radio ‘University’ conducted Routing 101 class with 8 participants on September 7, 2013. This class was a follow-on to the Repeater 101 class that RMHRU held earlier. These classes were presented by RMHRU ‘professors’ John Maxwell (W0VG) and Bob Sterner (KB0BS) in the well-equipped ‘classroom’ at Doug Sharp’s (K2AD’s) home. The IP and Router curriculum offered instruction in basic IP addressing and protocols, as well as information for more advanced router and network configurations.

Workshops were included in the classes to allow participants to experience hands-on router and switching configurations, and to actually link a repeater that is soon be incorporated into the RMHR MotoTRBO network.

RMHR’s Doug Sharp and John Maxwell also presented a basic outline of the RMHR network improvements that are currently being implemented. these include the micro-wave enhancement of the network backbone, and re-configuration of the system. They also introduced the regional talk-groups that will soon significantly enhance RMHR’s MotoTRBO system capabilities. RMHR expects to continue involving more amateur radio enthusiasts to participate in its efforts to expand its service area and capabilities. RMHR University is just another way that communications experts can promote the many technological capabilities of amateur radio. See pictures of the class here: Routing 101 Class
