UKHASnet Hack Weekend to be held in Southampton during Summer of 2015.
Location: Southampton University
Time: Weekend of 8th/9th August
The Uni Room is booked, weekend is confirmed! Add your attendance to the list at the bottom of the page.
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..
A limited amount of local sofa/floor space will be available. Otherwise, local hotels or deals on airbnb are suggested.
The University's halls accommodation programme is unfortunately not viable for small groups.
