Theme

Buoys!

Our current plan to build a flotilla of UKHASnet sea buoys. These buoys will then be deployed by Kayak off the coast of Calshot on the Solent.

Build whatever you want, a simple battery-powered node that just beacons the sea temperature, or a solar powered node that also provides a repeater to extend the network! You could even add a GSM module to directly uplink yours, and any other telemetry you receive to ukhas.net.

Adding a cheap GPS module would be useful to track the location of the flotilla. There is also an APRS igate in Cowes that could be useful..
